*this post went missing so i am reposting it*

a couple of days ago we visited the little town of wolverton, where steve’s mom {the boys’ nana} grew up. we wanted to share a little bit of family history with david and matthias.

she lived in a little home on aylesbury street.

here is her house number–22. i imagine there are so many memories behind that door! i wish we could have gone in for a look around!

we asked the boys to sit on the step and smile. after about 20 takes i gave up–oh well! it still makes for a fun set of pictures in front of nana’s old house.

there were berries and flowers and pretty little things here and there.

and just down the road is the church she attended growing up. it was gorgeous–but it seems every town in england has a beautiful church in the middle of town!

headstones on the church property give so much insight into those who have lived and loved here–some of them date from the early 1800′s! it’s crazy to think about all the people who lived in this town and worshipped in this church. and it’s changed so much in the last 200 years!

here we are in the center of town–that’s cousin zoe with the boys.
have you ever had a chance to visit somewhere that was significant to your family history?
