Summer always brings back memories of my childhood summers spent on Uncle Lester and Aunt Izola’s ranch. We would eat peaches while we turned the crank of the ice cream freezer making peach ice cream. My cousins and I just couldn’t get enough of those wonderful fresh peaches!
And the stories Aunt Izola and Uncle Lester told – we couldn’t get enough of them either. I developed my love of history and especially the Mitchell family stories sitting on the front porch, eating peaches and listening to my relatives’ stories. You can read more about how I came to continue the family story-telling tradition at The Westward Sagas.
