When the Grandkids Get the Camera


(I wanted to post these yesterday but our internet access was having problems. So here is my "Wordless Wednesday, slightly late. These photos were taken by one of my granddaughters when we visited the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia last Saturday. The murals are on a floodwall that protects the town. The statue is of General Lewis, I believe, who fought at the Battle of Point Pleasant. Click on the photos to make them larger.)

I loved these pictures when I was looking at them at your house. Cass has such a great sense of humor. Of course, Ally's swimming pic is funny too.

Hey Granny Sue!

Looks like the grands had a great time in Point Pleasant! I had the same problems with my computer yesterday too. Must be the weather.

I hope to take my kids to Point Pleasant sometime but that will probably have to wait until all of these storms and humidity with high temps go away!

It's so refreshing to see kids with such great imaginations! The photos are wonderful.

Love the way your grandchildren have blended into the murals. The murals themselves are great - are they Huron people in your area? I'm just going on the fact that they have shaved heads with a small section of hair left.

I didn't see them taking these pictures so I got a neat surprise when I downloaded them. More pis tomorrow, I think, because there are others that are just great.

Rowan, I believe these were Shawnee Indians. The hair I'm not sure about--it may be just the artist's idea of what they looked like or it might reflect research that indicated this was the way Indians in our area wore their hair. Now you've got me curious because I never thought about it.

Thanks for sharing pictures. The kids look like they were having a great time taking them. Kids are so clever.
Love,

I bet you are getting lots of laughs while surrounded by all the grandkids. They have obviously inherited that imaginative streak from you and their photos are great!

We have had such a good time! The best part is listening to them tell stories about when they were younger, or about times with their families, and the laughter that follows. A teen's perspective on the world is refreshing and eye-opening.

I shall see what I can find about the Shawnee people. I'm very interested in First Nations culture (that's a fancy word when what I really mean is their way of life and beliefs!)and it's practically the first thing I try to discover when I visit a new area of the US.
