While there, I was able to go through some old photos. I grabbed a stack of photo albums to bring home. The next few days will be tied up scanning all the important, funny, and memory-filled photos. My hope is to use the digital print-outs for hand made ornaments this upcoming Christmas. They would make wonderful gifts for my brother and sister, and I would love to have a tree filled with all these memories.....my family tree! :)
I will share the progress as I go along. It might inspire you to try something similar with your family photos.
Here are a few of the old photos of my parents that I came across. They looked so young and ready for life. Dad, looking so handsome in his uniform; and my Mom beaming with my Dad as they begin their life together. The beach scene below with the older cars in the background was taken about 10 years later - the cars are a hoot to see.
Thanks for letting me go down memory lane.
