Take Me Back Tuesday & Flashback Friday

February 1981
7rs old
I am sitting on my father's lap and my little sister (4yrs old in this shot) is on my mom's lap.  Look at how young my parents look!  In this photo my mom was 27 and my dad was 29.  They were very young parents.  When my mom was my age, she had a 16 & 13 year old.  I have to smile at this photo...my dad has lots of hair in it...not so much now.

I have to say thank you to my parents for giving my sister & I the love of taking photos.  I truly enjoy looking back through these old photos my parents took.  Now my sister and I enjoy taking photos of  our own families.  My husband had the opposite experience growing up.  His parents did not own a camera.  While my parents have albums upon albums of old photos to go through...I have a handful of old photos of my husband as a child I got from his grandmother (who passed away a few years ago).

You know, I'm waiting on pins and needles for couches like that to come back in style. ;) And look at your smile. I think I could pick you out of a crowd by your grin alone. :)

Great comments, your Mom certainly does not even look 27! I was also fortunate to have lots of photos from childhood, although my Mum still holds most of them, when I visit her I scan a few more each time. We have soooo many of our boys, it's lovely to look back on them.
