Take Me Back Tuesday

A Giveaway Addicted Mommy
These pictures are from May 1980 at the Lilac Festival in Rochester, NY. My parents would take us almost every year. The Lilac Festival is held in Highland Park which is a Frederick Law Olmsted designed park. In 1980, my parents brought my cousins with us.
My sister hiding under the bushes...
Me...My cousin & I (age 6). (He is 1mth & 1 day younger than I)

My sister (age 3)...My cousin (age 2).

While I LOVE lilacs, my husband HATES them. *sigh*
