Yesterday was my parents and grandparents wedding anniversaries (26 years and 56 years respectively). Friday night I rode with my grandmother and aunt and we met my grandpa out at their cabin in "no-mans-land." Saturday morning we drove over to Chandler and Davenport Oklahoma to visit the graves of our relatives. My grandma is from Davenport and she drove us around showing us where they lived and telling stories. It was a nice mini vacation and I enjoyed hearing about my family history. There is something charming about the quaint, old towns that have been around prior to statehood but it's also a little depressing to see them in their current state (weathered and dilapidated). Davenport seemed as though it were on the verge of becoming ghost town. I suspect most of the residence there are sustained by Chandler.

It was nice getting to spend time with my grandparents. It made me wonder about the legacy I will leave behind one day.

This is a picture I stitched together of their land (sorry so small). It was so beautiful and clear. My grandpa had spent the previous day on the tractor mowing.While I was atop the hill taking the land shots (above) I saw this butterfly. It was a lucky shot, so serene.After we got back it was so nice outside, there was a strong breeze but it really cut down on the heat, near perfect. We sat out on the porch and watched the humming birds.I caught two at the feeder but at one point there were five attempting to drink from it!I will always love my Nana and Papa!
