Back Home Again in Indiana {Part 3}

I'm pretty sure I mentioned it before, but our girls did such a great job of being pulled every direction, driving all over Indiana, and meeting new people multiple times throughout the day.

The morning after Sarah's wedding, we got up and packed our bags, piled into Nana and Poppy's rental car, and drove down to Versailles where my grandparents used to live so that we could meet up with three of my great aunts.  I hadn't seen two of my aunts in about 8 years, but I was able to see one of them when we were in Indiana about 5 1/2 years ago.  It was so great to see them, and the girls did such a nice job of talking with them while we were there.

After having lunch at the only sit down restaurant in this very small town, we went to one of my aunt's house to catch up some more.  Her house is two houses down from the house my grandparents lived in, and when Sydney and I walked down there, I so desperately wanted someone to open up the door and invite us in.  

➹ My brother and I used to play on that porch and in that yard for hours! ➹

My aunt's house was virtually unchanged from what I remembered.  The kitchen, the bathrooms, the yard, all looked exactly the same as they did when I was a child. 

It was such a great day there, and I'm so glad we were able to spend time with them.
