Today I took a road trip with my mother and two aunts to visit some dearly departed loved ones in two different country cemeteries. We travelled down some dusty roads and had some marvelous views of the mountains. This picture is taken from one of the cemeteries. We decided it was a beautiful, peaceful final resting place.
It was really cool to see the grave markers of my great-great grandparents, as well as getting a lesson in our ancestry from the older generation. Hopefully this is something I can pass on to my children someday.
Afterwards we ate about a 2000 calorie lunch in a great little drive-in restaurant. (Hey - it was hot and we needed those chocolate shakes!) Then we hit a few vintage shops on our way home where I bought this awesome 1950's Koben-style Dansk enamel pitcher.
All in all, it was a great way to spend a vacation day away from the office!
