As some of you know, I lost my Dad last Fall. Today's visit was with 4 of his first cousin's at the old family homestead in the country.
I spent a great deal of time at this old country house as a child. As soon as I walked in the door there were so many memories. The home has not changed much at all over the years. Each room I explored brought back a story or memory.
Then we started looking at the hundreds of old photos. Old pics of my Dad's parents who had both died before I was born and some baby pictures of my Dad which I had never seen before.
This photo is my Dad as a little boy. I cropped the photo, but the original includes his brother and 2 cousins. Dad and his brother were both wearing these little sailor suits made by their Mom. I laughed and laughed, but they were so darn cute.
They also had an envelope of snapshots of me when I was a teeny one at the homestead.
OK, Seriously.....How friggin cute was I? Lol
