On Saturday my mom and I drove up to Snowflake. We went for Mother's day, because it's where my mother grew up and where my mother's mother is buried. I love Snowflake and I really feel connected to it because so much of my family history is tied to that place. My Great-Great-Great Grandfather was one of the founders of the town. Here is his name and he is the one standing next to the wheel-cart in the sculpture.
We visited my great-aunt Maryland and I got to know her better. She's a sweet woman and I loved her stories. We also visited the grave sites of my mother's parents. My mother loves to visit because sometimes she misses them.
We visited a few shops in town and ate at this soup-&-sandwich place. It was super yummy. I had roast-beef and tomato basil soup....mmmmm. It was great visiting and driving and hanging out with my mom! She is awesome!
