This morning my Grandpa Perrin died.  He would have been 91 in a couple of weeks.  I remember summers at the farm fondly, and will cherish all of the memories I have.

Great Grandma visits

So, Brad and I purchased this house in June 2003.  And in July 2011, Grandma Becker had her first trip here.  We were so excited.  We did lots, but I didn't take too many photos.  Here's what I got:

Noah, Great Grandma and Grandma watch Ethan have swimming lessons.

And some more for the summer photo challenges at the Scrapping Nook:

storm clouds

summer sports
