Weekend with the Fam

 Mr. Cranberry & Youngest Grandson

 On the train at Marathon Park
He was saying 'CHEESE' with every muscle he could muster.

We had a great weekend with our daughter and children who have just moved to Wisconsin. Dad was still in Indiana, finishing up a few things before moving up to join the fam in a few days. It is so nice to have them just 2 hours away! And it was wonderful to see the grandkids. We are looking forward to lots of day trips in the future. And I'll post other photos when I get them.


St. Hedwig's Church
(between Thorp and Withee)

This bell tower stands a few feet away from the church ,
which is now empty, having combined with St. Bernard's in Thorp

Also in front of the church, this sign

It is such a blessing that your family is nearer! Day trips to visit grandbabies (and their parents) are exciting!!

i don't remember ever being there, but the names thorp and owen-withee brought back memories of high school sports team rivals. :)

loved the photos of gramps and grand. :)

I agree, a very precious photo with your grandson and hubby. I was wondering if that church was Polish with the name of Hedwig, which is a very common first name for Polish women.

What a cutie! So glad they are closer to you now! I am always amazed by the scenery of your state. For some reason I always think industry when I think midwest/north but there are so many farms and so much history!

Vee said...'s going to be great! What a look of love on Mr. Cranberry's face...he obviously thinks the world of his grandson. What a cutie pie that grand is.

Oh, what a blessing to have the family nearer! Two hours is just a hop and a skip, Judy.
I loved your photo of Grandpa and
Grandson. I bet they are the best of buddies!

You were enjoying having you grands closer to you, and we were, too! Great photos of Mr. Cranberry and your little smiling-for-his life grand! Cheese, indeed! LOL

I know how enjoyable it is to spend the day with grandchildren! It is nice to see your photos of Wisconsin, as I have not had the opportunity to visit your state as yet.

Thanks for sharing.

Deborah said...

So glad you had such a good time! Love all the photos of Henry and Gramps. Of course your hubby is handsome, that's why you married him!! Lol! I look forward to seeing more photos.

Sounds like a fun time! I love churches, especially older ones with the beautiful steeples.
