My Grandparent’s House
I visited the house where my grandparent’s lived until they died (early 1970’s) in Springville, Utah
(136 East 200 North Springville, Utah)
It brought back so many fond memories…throwing pillows over the bannister from the second floor down to the entry-way in a pillow fight with my cousins…Thanksgiving dinners in the parlor and the beautiful iris garden that filled the entire side yard….
My grandmother always had a bag of salt water taffy in the drawer of the sideboard in the parlor, African violet plants in their little pots blooming everywhere and crocheted doilies on the back and arm of every chair and couch…
The old horse chestnut tree still stands out front. My siblings and I used to throw those spiky green things at each other….and there used to be no sidewalk and gutter in front and when it rained there would be a gigantic puddle that filled the entire area in front of where the fence is now.
