Our 2012 road trip has been going really great. We’ve stopped in Cedar City, Iowa and visited the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum. Beautiful grounds and awesome exhibits. I never knew much about that president so the experience was wonderful. Our destination was Wisconsin.
My husband and I arrived the day before the family reunion. We met with some of my mother’s cousins and their families for dinner. This was a first for my husband. He’s heard me talk of these relatives throughout the years.
After dinner, we followed in our car, my mother’s cousins Mildred, her sister Myrtle, Mildred’s son Roger and his wife Arlene. They showed us the house my grandparents once own; the very house where my mother, her sister and brother grew up. Years and years ago my mother showed my sister, brother and I her old house and I’ve seen it several times after that. I just never knew the address or how to get back to it.
