I heart faces - Week 33 - Nostalgia

This weeks theme is Nostalgia over at I {heart} faces! At first I was clueless about what to share and then it was there!One of the places we were able to visit while on vacation holds many memories for our family.

*Gran-Grandma used to walk and let her boys play on the canons and in the square.



*Grandaddy, Grandma and Gran-Grandma used to bring their boys(and grandsons) to play on the cannons when they were young.



*Brian and I once visited the park and cannons when we were fist engaged. It was the first time I met my future Gran-Grandma. We snapped a pic of ourselves when we were up there.



*Uncle Scott proposed to Aunt Bea in the same square last year.



And now we got to take OUR kids to play on the cannons, run around the square, picnic on the benches and then take OUR picture on the cannon!!!

Great to be a part of our family "history" and the kids had a blast too:)

***THANK YOU to my Mother-in-law (AKA Grandma) for our wonderful stay and for taking this picture!! You did a great job:) And thanks to Grandaddy for all the fun!!
