Vol’s Hawaiian Adventure

In 2013 we went on a Ladies Only adventure to Maui.  My cute niece Aimee’s little girl, Millie sent her stuffed animal to keep her from being lonely.  I decided to make Millie a little book about what Vol did in Hawaii. CCI26122015_10

I starting taking pictures with  Vol wherever we went.  When we went to the Luau, I asked the dancers to hold our Vol and they were happy  to do it. It is a great idea when you have to leave someone at home.  With Smart phones it is even faster.  They will love to see their animal on the trip with you!!

Our Bear Lake Vacation

One of the best ways to share and keep memories is through a family book.  After a family vacation to Bear Lake in 2012 I created a book for each family.   Of course there are the requisite pictures of the grandchildren(like chasing cats!),  crafting, and  being on the lake.  We made sure to take some pictures of Great- Grandpa and Grandma Dixon.  There is a page where each grandchild recalled their favorite things about the trip and the back of the book are the dates we were there and the ages of each grandchild.  Each family got a copy for Christmas.  Even now, when they come to our house, they loved to look at the book and remember and laugh about the fun times our family had. CCI26122015CCI26122015_3CCI26122015_2

Share your story & build a bridge

What is an eternal bridge? It can be anything from a recipe from your Great-Grandmother, a story about your Dad, or something that happened to you in Kindergarten.

Our lives are made up of memories and when those who we love are gone, the stories are lost forever. You may be the only link that your children and grandchildren have to your parents and grandparents.

My Dad served in the Navy in World War II. I used to listen to the stories he told about the war but strange places like Iwo Jima and Okinawa didn’t mean anything to me. After he died at a fairly young age I realized what we had lost. I could recreate his career in the Navy but the experiences he had treasured so much were gone.
