Bride - 1962

For years my mother always said she didn't have any pictures from her wedding.  Recently we came across some slides taken by her brother-in-law.  When I was visiting her we found them again and I scanned them!  Isn't she beautiful!

Hillcrest Pumpkin Patch

The TreeHouse had our annual trip to the pumpkin patch today.  It all went well if you don't count the fact that Boone was in one of his moods and kept shouting "Shut up!" at everyone including me.  I think I may need to change my parenting technique with him.  What do you think?

Spider Buddies

The boys got new PJ's from Target today!  They decided they were spider buddies!

Connor has been playing Football this season and doing great!  I'm very proud of how hard he has worked for his position on the team.  Today we played Fancher Creek (that is way out there, by the way).  We won!  Connor made a few excellent tackles, and almost made a sack.  Isn't he cute!

Gray Cemetery in Hadley, New York

We went and checked out some family grave sites today.  These ones, Loton and Betsey Herrick, were special to me because I just did their temple work last year.

The Wild Center - Tupper Lake

This was one of the coolest nature centers I have ever seen.  And I loved these twig blocks we made this tower out of so much I bought some to take home.
But probably our favorite thing was when they brought out Stickley the Porcupine.  I'm not sure if I have ever seen a porcupine at such close range!

Will somebody please show me how to make my blog super cute like everyone else!  I'm going to get an inferiority complex!

Rafting With Dad

Today I took a break from my slide scanning project and went river rafting with my Dad.  The colors where absolutely beautiful and we had class 3 and up rapids.  Never hurts to sit across a boat from your parent for a few hours, even if you are, well, as old as me.

They Don't Make Clothes Like They Use To!

No matter how hard they try, they will never be able to truly reproduce clothes from the 70's!  This is my paternal grandparents with my siblings and I in our driveway in New Jersey, 1973.  Those were the days!

Me in 1972

I'm at my parent's house in Albany, New York with a tempermental slide scanner and around 2,000 family slides.  There is no telling what you will see this week!  This picture was taken in Florida in 1972.
