Family Reunion Weekend Part 1

This past weekend my entire family was in Loudonville Ohio for the Conrad family reunion 
{my grandpa's side of the family}.
The house my mom and uncle grew up in is the house my grandpa built after him and grandma were married. 
My grandma is 89 years young and still lives in the same house.

Summers growing up my brothers and I would each spend a week alone up at grandma and grandpas and it was usually the best week of the summer.
What's better than being spoiled by grandma and grandpa?

Some things haven't changed in my 25 years of going up to grandma's.
The huge tree my brothers and I would climb is still standing and grandma still makes her way to the 3rd floor to do her sewing.

If you couldn't find grandpa growing up he was sure to be in 1 of 3 places:
1. his workshop
2. the hobby room building his boats
3. out in the yard on his wheel horse tractor {yes it still works!}

The weather was PERFECT and I did a lot of roaming around.
More pictures to come tomorrow!
Until then pop over to A {Little} Dash of Ash where I've linked up for another round of Monday's Instagram Link up.

Hope you're weekend was as amazing as mine!
Happy Monday!


  1. What a wonderful weekend. Your grandparents house is just beautiful.

    I grew up with my grandparents and I have so many amazing memories. My nan and I recently did a short road trip (like we used to when I was a kid) and we took my little cousin along. It was so great sharing stories with her and stopping off at all the quirky little places we stopped at when I was a kid and exploring them once again.

  2. What a great weekend!! So glad you had fun!

  3. That is so cool...I can't believe she still lives in the same house! It sounds like the perfect grandparents' house, too! What is it about the grandparents' house that makes it so wonderful and wonderous (besides the obvious factor of your grandparents (c:)???
