Barn Chicks...



Last weekend, (the one before this past weekend)...one half of the Wonder Twins and I dropped my mama off at her high school reunion luncheon and then headed off for a little drive down the backroads of my Nebraskan grandparents' birthplace.









What a gorgeous day!

















We saw loads of lovely farms...

...but this is the view...





...from the barn on the farm....





...with the eight-sided house...




...where my grandma was born!





And this is the gate to the house 'cross the way...





...where my grandma dreamed she would, one day, PLAY!


Thank you so much, Auntie Georgia, for the beautiful tour!

pps  I hope to post more about The Midwestern Junkin' and Family History Huntin' Tour with Lil' Red and the Wonder Twins soon...along with all of the scoop from the Farm Chicks' Show!  I had to make a trip "into town" yesterday to fetch Peep, who boarded at the vets' while we were hittin' the road.  She is doing quite well and is sooo happy to be home.  I may just have to change her name...because she has quite the big little voice now and loads of things to say.  

Oh, and before I forget....ya'll need to head on over and visit my blog friend Mary, aka Urban Farmgirl.  She's giving away a $50 Pottery Barn gift card!!!

Yeehaw!!!

This reminds me of the days growing up on our farm, and I loved seeing the house where your grandma was born. What a blessing that it is all still there! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful day with us!

Blessings,

What a unique home....must be nice to see heritage houses that belong to family and I adore the gate.
