My Grandpa and Grandma had this swing set I spent countless hours swing on.   It was very basic.  Two swings and a teeter toter.  The seats were made out of wood.  I loved pulling up to Grandma and Grandpas house seeing the willow tree swaying in the breeze, the old barn and box car we loved to play on, the canal to cool our feet off in and the swing set!  It was a paradise to me.

When I found these pictures on Kiki and Polly, it reminded me of my childhood visits to Grandma and Grandpas.  My Grandpa passed away this last week.  I have been thinking a lot about my time with Grandpa and Grandma.  They are both gone now.  I can't wait to see them again someday.  For now, I can hold on to all my wonderful memories.

What a sweet post, Nicole. Our kids wanted to drive over to the house and relive a few memories; we took some great pictures. So good to see you and your darling family!
P.S. I just posted pictures of the weekend on my blog. I also would love an invite to your personal blog like we talked about.
