Moms & Daughters

Napa is the ancestral home, the place where my mom's family lived for nearly a century, from the 1870s when French Albert Sawyer arrived from New Hampshire, looking to start a tannery along the river, until the 1960s when the last family members drifted away. There are few occasions to visit now, so it was nice that Sue chose it as a halfway meeting place to have ice cream on a Sunday afternoon, for Katie's birthday.
