FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

**I'm a guest at Muthering Heights today! Come see!!! You will also love her blog!**

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

I don't recall the exact year of this picture, but it had to be around 1973 since we were still living in Moffett Field (Naval housing).

That's my dad, me, my sister, and my mom.

Everything about this picture screams "70's".

For example, the funky astrological chart behind my dad.

The way my parents looked like the Filipino Sonny & Cher.

Or, how my sisters hairstyle makes me think of The Bay City Rollers.

Oh, and we can't leave out the mini bar to the left!!

Wow!

Your mom is so pretty. I like her dress, hair and smile. She and your dad do look like the 70s; looks that I can relate with as I also grew up in the 70s :-)

That picture is amazing!! The 70's were really so funny...or should I say...groovy.

I need to go find a picture...:)

Sue said...

Love that shot! Totally 70's. Everyone looks so cool, and your parents could be Sonny & Cher.

Darcie said...

What a GREAT picture to share for FPF. Your mom is so beautiful, and you are right...flashback to the 70's...love it. Have a great weekend Alicia.

Nina said...

I love how we can look at old pictures and just know when they came from. Cute photo!

The Hall Family said...

After I saw your comment I had to run over here and check out your picture again. I say all our dads are missing are vests made out of fake fur. At least it was the 70s when your parents looked like that. I think my dad was just wishing the 70s had never ended. Ha!

Erin said...

The Filipino Sonny & Cher! LOL! I love that picture...it is such a snapshot of an era!

Karen Bastille said...

This is a wonderful photo meme -
I'm so happy I found you!
Thank you!

Your picture is Fab! - a popular word back in the days...
My own daughter was born in 1974.
I'm sure she has family photos of her parents very similar to this one!

Grandmother Wren

This is such an adorable picture...and yes, it screams 1970's!!! Now I can see where you get your beautiful smile from...your mom is gorgeous!!

I giggled when you mentioned Bay City Rollers...I totally used to watch them all the time!

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y!!

You are so right about that 70s look, bet you all thought you were so cool!
