I remember going to Payette, Idaho where my Grandmother Tomlinson and Aunt Louise and cousins Ardyth and Lee lived. Aunt Louise was a single mother who taught school in Payette. My mother and dad picked me up right when school was out and we drove what seemed like very late in the night before we arrived in Payette. There were so many little towns to drive through and I was so excited to see my only cousins on my father's side. It would always be a wonderful time and I didn't want it to end. Sadly, I don't have any pictures of Thanksgiving with Dad's side of the family.
Other years we would travel to Rupert, Idaho for Thanksgiving with Mother's side of the family, the Perrins. Mother's sister my Aunt Gladys and Uncle Reed lived on a farm in Rupert. Or I remember traveling to Ucon, Idaho just north of Idaho Falls where my mother's sister Kerma and Uncle Bill lived on a farm. The above pictures are Thanksgiving at Aunt Kerma's with lots of Aunts and Uncles and loads of cousins. Wonderful memories.
