Trip to Auburn.

I recently took at trip to Auburn, California to visit my Aunt Dot, cousins Lora, Andy and his wife, Mel, and my Mamie.  I went with Mom, Megan, Fletcher and Jane.  We had 4 generations under one roof and had so much fun.  We did what we do–played outside, picked vegetables from the garden, cooked, ate, swam, shopped a little, and took the train one day to San Francisco.  I am ready to return and am so grateful to Mamie and Aunt Dot for hosting our little tornado of a traveling group.

We picked fresh blackberries and made little pies.




We went for a hike.



We played with chickens and worked in the garden.
