The special bond of Mother and child is written with love on their hearts and souls and make them a part of each other forever. ~ Author unknown
If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me ~ Place them in my Mother's arms & tell her they're from me ~ Tell her that I love & miss her, & when she turns to smile ~ place a kiss upon her cheek & hold her for a while ~ Because remembering her is easy ~ I . . . do it everyday ~ There's an ache within my heart that will never go away. ~ Author unknown

To celebrate Independence day today, our family attended An Old-Fashioned Fourth of July celebration in a neighboring quaint community by the name of, Poway, the city in the country. We had a great time and I couldn't think of a better way for the grandchildren to learn and visualize the olden days.
We took a tour of the Nelson Family home (built in 1918) that was moved from it's original location in 1991 to this historic park for preservation. We watched a mock train robbery, rode the steam engine train, witnessed a cannon fired, blacksmith demonstrate iron making, beautiful quilt displays, men and women dressed in period Civil War uniforms and clothing, free crafts and games for kids . . . all to celebrate America's Birthday.
Happy Independence Day!!
