Family's are a Heritage

I am blessed to come from a big family with a rich heritage. Every August approximately 150 of us get together on a farm to eat chicken corn soup and rekindle relationships. This has been happening for decards - 50 years of chicken corn soup on a farm; maybe 75 years or more all together. Today someone posted this picture of Grammy Shaubach and Grammy Rhoads. I think the lady on the left would be my great-great grandmother. The one on the right is my great grandmother whom I never met. She birthed 12 children, one of whom was my grandmother.
As I looked at this picture, if it was an August reunion, I wondered, "Can you even imagine wearing those long dresses in the heat of summer in Pennsylvania? And those shoes? Where are their tank tops and flip flops? The woman on the left, great-great grammy, looks like she's melting." She's probably quite old. I'd be having a heat stroke if that were me. Along with my family legacy, I'm grateful for air conditioning and skimpier clothes!
