"You are worried about seeing him
spend his early years in doing nothing.
Is it nothing to be happy?
Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long?
Never in his life will he be so busy again."
~Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 1762 ~
A few days ago, my Aunt Elaine shared this photograph on Facebook. It includes herself, 5 siblings, and her mother. The youngest brother wasn't born until the Summer after...
Love all that blonde hair!
My dad was 5 years old then...
the same age his grandson is now.
He's the little boy sitting off to the right.
Mom asked our family over for lunch yesterday afternoon.
As I was getting the kids ready, I had a last-minute idea to print this photo out for Dad. I changed the photo to a sepia-tone and added a background texture.
Here's the result, which prints out to 8"x10".
I'm not sure where this photo was taken,
but I'm sure my aunts and uncles had a lot of fun there!
Wishing you a great day...
maybe with a few fond
childhood memories thrown in!
Thanks for stopping by!
