My favorite childhood memories!! Going up north to see Caro! and Marilyn. Besides bailing hay and churning butter, taking what seemed like a long walk to her grandmas. We went out to the back chicken coop (I think), and made mud pies to put in the little cubby holes (out shelves). That was our kitchen. Played for hours. Then I remember going bowling with the family. Such good memories. Love you all so much.
