We went to Bear Lake over the Memorial Day weekend and worked hard AND had so much fun! Eli and Julie joined us for a day and made made some awesome Chocolate chip cookies. Lenna and Jessica joined us for a cousin and ancestor tour of the Bloomington Cemetery and Star Valley (coming next).
This is Grandma Jacobson who lost 5 children and walked 1000 miles across the plaines pregnant, settled Bloomington and then her husband left her for his "other wife".
Grandma Nellie, Grandpa Freddie and their son Jay who died at 18. How we love these great ancestors who made us who we are!
Here is the creek where Grampa Jacobson was baptized:
And here is what is left of the house where Grandpa Freddie died on the front porch! WE have no idea wht happened...well we know there was a fire!
BUT on a happier note, we stopped to see Grandma's J's house, which was just sold to a darling young couple. The new owner came along just as we were prowling around the house and he let us come in and take pictures. It felt so good to see it loved again!
This is where the fridge, freezer and closet were:
Living room: NOte the "telephone holder"
How about this bathroom!!!
Front bedroom (master I think)
They have one little two year old.
The middle bedroom is his room!
Even the "basement" looks great! They're making this into a laundry room!
They haven't done anything with the upstairs yet, except taken the carpet off the stairs and painted the walls!
All in all...although we haven't seen the money yet, we are thrilled to have this house in such good hands!
