Travel to Arkansas

We just got back from Arkansas on Saturday morning (1:00 am). We were up there to help clean out our Great-Grandma's house. We spent most of our time organizing, cleaning, decluttering, etc.

Great-Aunt Cora Etta (pronounced Coretta). She is my Dad's Mom's sister. :)

This man is related to us somehow-- I think he's a distant cousin.

We girls went on a long walk and stopped to take this photo

One of Great-grandma's friends, Lillie,  her husband, Bud, and their daughter.

More relatives whose names I do not know.

Runetta Hughes-- she is my Great-grandma's brother's daughter (i.e. my Great-grandma's niece). She is around the same age as my parents, but the generation above (she's my Dad's Mom's cousin).
That's my Great-Great Uncle Anderson on the left (my Great-grandma's younger brother). He was the father of Runetta (pictured above).

This is a photo that was at the Cracker Barrel restaurant we went to. :) I LOVE old photos!!! :)

I love old photos, too! It's so cool looking at all your ancestors, seeing family resemblance, wondering what their lives were like.

Yes, old photos are lovely! :) I love (almost) all things old and researching our family history was so much fun!!

Miss you,
