The whole reason for the trip to MN was to clean out Grandma's house and sort through things. Thus there was a lot of work to be done but we ended up having some fun too. Because we only had 3 days to clean out a whole house (with a basement) not many pictures were being taken except during a few memorable moments...
Letters and notes from the old days before Mom & Dad V were married were found. One note to Mom was asking if she wanted to "do something crazy like get married".
Sometimes these two fought like brother and sister but overall Marth was a good babysitter, keeping JuneBug out of trouble.
Boxes! Boxes! Everywhere!
When Uncle D came over we didn't put him to work the whole time. See we didn't! :D
Going through Grandma's bedroom and closets was lots of fun. One item of interest was a picture of the old family homestead over in Sweden.
Horned rimmed glasses which Nan looks pretty good in.
And I don't. I look like a mean school marm!
Crazy. Yes, we know. Do we have to be related to her? :D
The shocked surprise of J. at some of the other things we found...
K reminds me of the Beatles here.
Ike trying out his new vacuum. (Yes, even though we don't have a stitch of carpet anywhere in the house we are getting a vacuum mainly for the hose attachments. But as Ike said you never know when we might get a rug!)
It has been so long since I went out to eat with kids that I forgot that some restaurants give out crayons and coloring pages. Time went by quickly even for us kid-adults as we made up games to play using these resources.
