Old Home Days!

Every 2 years our village has "Old Home Days". It's a day filled with fun events sponsored by the library, fire department, historical society & church.   There is a pancake breakfast @ the American Legion,  parade, Chicken BBQ @ the Fire Station, garage sales galore, crafts @ the library & lots of fun kids games at the church, the historical society is open & this year their new building was open for viewing too & it was amazing! So much history packed into 1 building! They have scrapbooks with history of the houses...we found our page! ☻

Dave's grandfather came down and sat with us on the porch to watch the parade, then his grandmother and Aunt Connie joined us for lunch and some garage sales. 


This evening there were bed races {yea, how redneck is that?!?!} followed by a HUGE block party!


We ended our night with an outdoor movie at the church.  It's days like these that I realize just how much I LOVE where we live.  What a great community of friends and neighbors we have! I am so thankful my girls get to grow up here..yes even small country towns have their share of "bad" stuff but its great to be in a place where there is still a lot of innocence!
