Quote of the Day:
As a reward for being a great mother you become a grandma and when you have great grandchildren that's because you are a great grandma!!
Our family reunion was last weekend. My mother is the now the Matriarch of the family. We took our granddaughter with us and we all had a wonderful time seeing family members and meeting new ones. The imaginations in our family is pretty out there and we had some great costumes and fun and games.
We also took our granddaughter to see some sights on the way from Virginia to Ohio. This is the Mothman which the movie The Mothman starring Richard Gere is based on. This is Pt. Pleasant W. Va. She is also pictured with the view of the Ohio River and the murals done on the flood walls there. Definitely worth the stop if you are near Pt. Pleasant.
On the way home, we made some stops so she could see some of the country. This is the Viet Nam Veterans Memorial in Princeton, Va. Each of the local counties had the names of those lost in the war.
We also made a short stop in Appomattox, Va. We didn't take her through the whole thing but this cemetery at the side of the road was a good idea of what took place here 150+ years ago. Those buried in the background are all confederate soldiers except one who was a U.S. soldier. You may not be able to see, but the confederate flag stands at each confederate grave and the starts and stripes stands with the U.S. Soldier. I have to say, with all the events taking place in the U.S. today, it's refreshing that the one U.S. soldier was taken care of and is still being taken care of.
Thank you for letting me share.
