Illinois July 2008

Erin and I, and Katie and her kids went to Keyesport, IL, to visit our grandfather. I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few.

Erin at the airport:

Granddad lives basically in the middle of a corn field, surrounded on 3 sides by corn. In front:

This is a photo of a photo. Granddad as a child, early 1920s. We went through lots of old pics like this. The earliest ones were from the 1840s. He has boxes and boxes of them.

4th of July

I think this one's neat - it's a long exposure. We lit a firecracker, and Erin thought it was great until it let off a big screech, and then she took off running.

The rest of these are Erin with a sparkler.
