Country Roads, Take me Home...

Sarah and I took a trip to the family cemetery, to do some cleaning of stones and plots, and picture and note taking. I had taken some family history pages with us, and we noted stones of people mentioned in the stories.
I love going places with Sarah, because she "so gets" the "need" to take pictures.

We peeked through windows in the church, to see if we could get a picture of the pews, but there was too much glare. My great-grandfather built them, and they are still in use.

My great-great grandparents were charter members of this church. I'm glad to see that even though the congregation has made additions in recent years, to accomodate their growth, they've maintained the original character of the building.

We mosied on down the road to the Yoder store.
Where you can buy a straw hat, cold pop, or garden rake.

We chose to buy an ice-cream and sit on the porch out front, to eat it.
I wonder if my Grandma ever sat there eating ice-cream with Katie Yoder as a girl?

I grew up in a town with a store like that. I wonder if it is still there?
