For Mary's 4th grade County Report, she randomly chose Davis County. I thought this would be a great opportunity to show Mary some of her Whiteside's Heritage, and visit Layton. She ended up doing a whole section in her report called "My Connection to Davis County". Here are some of the places visited.
Mary in front of "Gram and Pa's" house. This is the house that Grandma Lucy grew up in. I remember playing there as a child. I remember it being SO much bigger!
We also visited the Layton Cemetery to see the graves of Gram and Pa, Mary (my aunt who died at 16), and my twin cousins who died in infancy. This is Mary in front of Mary's grave. This Elementary school is named after my Grandma Lucy's family, and is on some of the family property.
This is us with my Aunt June (Grandma Lucy's sister), who was our tour guide all over Layton. She then fed us banana bread! It was a really great visit.
Then we headed up to Logan for Cousin Whitney's wedding, and during a little down time we went and found the house that Papa Bob grew up in, as well as his Elementary School which was just a couple blocks away.
