Just one of many family gatherings when the children were young.There are hundreds of pictures of vacations, holidays, and family gatherings at this house. I can see many of them in my mind's eye when I sit on that porch. The value of this house can't be measured by an appraiser. You can't put a price on a piece of your heart.
