We often wandered from Greenwood IN to the wonderful state parks of Indiana. Turkey Run. Springmill, Morgan Monroe State Forest and so many others. One of those State Parks was the Brown County State Park. When my mother-in-law moved back to Indiana, we used to take her and my father-in-law down to the Nashville Inn for lunch. The Nashville Inn is a restaurant in Brown County, in the tiny little city called Nashville Indiana. Nashville, Indiana is much smaller than its much bigger cousin in Nashville, TN. There is in the little Indiana town a smaller version of the Grand Ole Opry. The smaller Opry also features Country Music and sits just outside of town.
These pictures are of the kids wandering around the park. We did that often back in the day. We don’t do as much like that now, as we did then. I suspect the world has changed massively since that time anyway.
One of the things that I often wonder about is the reality of doing exactly what you say you are going to do. Verus the growing reality of doing whatever you want to do. One of the things that limit me personally from joining into challenges on the writings sites I am a member of is my wander project. I need to get some of my grandfathers and father’s pictures out for others to see. They were both wonderful photographers. I also need to get the thoughts out of my head. If I let them stew, then it becomes messier in my head.
The other reason for these pictures today is the passage of time. The other night (Monday) this week, we had a family dinner. Our daughter, future son-in-law, both twins and my wife and I sat around the table and enjoyed a meal. We did that more often when my daughter and future son-in-law lived with us, but since they have moved out, this is the first time for a family meal at the house. I realized how much the kids have all grown, so today I wanted to share some pictures of the twins and our daughter when they were little. So it is a dual purpose picture set today. Remembering the way the kids were, and marveling at home much they have grown. I am proud of the three of them!
