We stayed with Grandma's sister Lenore in American Falls, ID. A lot of Grandma's family lives in American Falls, so I got to see quite a few of my relatives (many of whom I didn't remember). I really enjoyed meeting them all.
On Friday Mom, Dad, and Christina came down and we went out to Rockland Cemetery and buried the ashes. After that we headed further down the road to Roy, where Grandpa grew up. It's not really a town now, but it used to be a little farming community. This is my Great-grandma Lind's old house. It's been abandoned for a long time, and it's really deteriorating. Great-grandma Lind was the post-mistress of Roy and ran the post office through her house.
Here's a bunch of the relatives together on the day we left.
I got to meet Grandma's three sisters who live in the area.
Grandma and Aunt Lenore
Grandma and Aunt Janet
Grandma and Aunt Betty
It was so good to go back and learn about my family roots. Between important places in our family's past that we visited and relatives I got to meet, the trip made me feel much more connected than I've been in the past.
