Hello friends! Welcome to Way Back Whensday - the blog carnival I createdway back here where we look way back in our photo archives (whether 2 months or 20 years!) to share with our friends the glories of where we were way back when!
This week's theme is "Water, Water Everywhere". I invite you to dig out old photos of yourselves as babies, children, teenagers or adults (or even of your own children) at the beach or pool.
I'm so excited to see what you've come up with! Fire up those scanners, friends, and join me for a trip Way Back When! And don't worry if it's not Wednesday anymore, you're always welcome to jump on board!
I'll start with a photo of my sister and me. In this photo, she's 2 and I'm 1 month old. My Mom used to take us to swim at our friends the Richardsons' pool. Notice the cute star bathing suit she's wearing?
Fast-forward two years: Becky (yes, we called her "Becky" then, so I'm calling her "Becky" for this photo) was 4 and I was 2. Now I'm wearing the star bathing suit! Isn't my mom cute to have the wherewithall while raising two little girls to recreate a cute picture? Nice work, Mom! (And, nice face, Becky!)
And, here we are that same summer at the Leckrones' pool, I believe. In this picture, I'm about the age that Oliver is now. I'm so glad I had a big sister to swim with me!
That's all I've got. It turns out, all the beach trips happened before I was born. But, these photos are great to have!
Alright, friends, you're up! Do you think we can hit more than three links this week? Dig deep, girls!
So, here's the deal: if we get at least five participants this week, I'll do this again next week. And, believe me, you want this to happen, because next week is all about birthday pictures! And, I know your Moms made some killer homemade birthday cakes! See you then!
