I would also like to comment on how beautiful your pictures are and state that this is my Great Grandmothers home. My Grandmother Elizabeth Jane (Weddle) Kenney grew up there. My mother Carolyn Diane (Kenney) Bennett attends the Family Reunions there on Labor Day. I have been only three times. I love the area. Thank you for the gorgeous pictures.

Your pictures are beautiful.

I just wanted to comment as this bridge is part of my family history. The blue house in the background is where my Grandfather Alvis Weddle grew up. It is also where we spend lazy summer days, as every year our family still meets at the house every Labor Day weekend for our family reunion.

If you have a chance you should go back and shoot it again, it was redone in (I think) 2005/2006.

Thanks for the beautiful photos.

p.s. For fun I am including a picture of my family in front of the old cellar (underground) that is located in the rear of the house.
