By Gloria Grade Olson: Family History, Current News, Genealogy
Caroline Grade and I took a Danube River Cruise In May/June, 2005. First is a picture of me having a beer in Nurenberg. Second is a picture of Caroline and I in Salzberg (I think.)
My cousin, Caroline Grade, from Cottonwood, California came to visit from April 25 to May1, 2004. During the week we took a trip to the Ozarks. We stayed in Eureka Springs, Arkansas and visited Silver Dollar City one day.
This is a picture of the three of us at Silver Dollar City in our matching "Kansas" tee shirts.
