Flashback Friday: DAD
I told you I had one more blog post today. :)

This weekend is Father’s Day – which means I’m heading back to my hometown to spend a little quality time with my Dad (and my mom since my birthday is next week and they’ll want to celebrate with me). He doesn’t know it yet (because I am doubtful he reads my blog), but we’re going to be setting up his brand new VHS to DVD converter that I bought for his birthday earlier this month…and potentially converting a few of our old home movies into DVDs. It should be fun.

The shot below is one of the pictures I have from my childhood…and one of the better shots of my dad (when I was little of course). I’m not exactly sure what’s going on in this picture – we’re in our kitchen (which still has the same wallpaper, although we’ve painted the cabinets and added a bar), but my mom has the table set up with her fine china vs. every dinnerware. I’m sure that she thought my brother and I (my guess is that I’m about 4/5, and he’s 2/3 at the time of this photo since that’s about the time we moved into the house) were just looking too cute in our Super Man pajamas not to take a picture…and told my dad to jump in the shot. I apologize to my sweet sister that she didn’t make the cut.

Oh, here’s another one of us riding piggy back – notice the stash.

And finally, I wanted to add one with my grandfather. He passed away several years ago and I miss him. He was truly a great man.

Anyways, enough of my rambling. Happy Father’s Day Dad! For more Flashback Friday, go to:

    these are awesome :)
    i love the look of older photos, before all this dslr hype!

    flashback friday is such a good idea. I’d have to get some old albums from my mom (or from my garage) and scan some in, but atleast it would get me into reminiscing!!

    Oh those pictures are so awesome though!! And they’re nice and big, so we can all see so much detail. I love that.

    These pictures are adorable! makes me want to go through my old family albums and reminisce! Thanks for visiting my blog today :-).

    How sweet! And is that you? You look so cute:)
    BTW, I have an award waiting for you on my blog, come and grab it because you truly deserve it:)
