Welcome To Grenville

More pictures from South Dakota. It was late spring, everything was blooming and green... and on one of our many little drives, seeing deer everywhere was0 one of Rainee's most favorite memories! She gets so excited when she sees our deer pictures... she starts talking about how many we saw... how some got scared and ran away... and there were others who just stood there looking at us to see what we were going to do. It's such a delight to hear her talk about our trip.

I have to tell you a little about Grenville... this is where my father was born and worked the farm with his 6 other siblings. He now lives 6 miles away, in a retirement home. Anyway... Grenville is very small, give or take about 50 people, I believe, it's about 100 people in all. They have a beautiful old church, a cemetery where my father's family rests. It has a bar and a couple of hunting/fishing lodges (one/two room places)... and that's it. A hand full of people live 'in town' and the rest live on the surrounding farmland. It has beautiful lakes with great fishing, rolling hills and miles of country roads just begging for you to take a walk. It's beautiful...

As for this layout... I used the Imaginisce fun Twitterpated Collection and their March sketch. Rainee fell in love with all those cute little animals... and so did I. They are so perfect for a springtime layout... and go so well with my South Dakota pictures! Too too fun!
