FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

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!

Here's a picture of my sister and I (I am on the scooter) when we were living in Moffett Field. I was probably around three years old at the time. A memory that comes to mind when I look at this picture has to do with my dad's scooter/moped. When my sister got out of school, I would ride on there with him to pick her up down the street from where the bus dropped her off. Now, this was way before seat belt laws, and he would let me sit down where his feet would be at. I know, TOTALLY DANGEROUS, but he probably figured we were only going a few feet down the street anyway. Besides his scooter, his other love was his green Charger! That will be another post of its own.

Wow, that's crazy!!

Erin said...

Oh my gosh, you look so cute! That scooter is so cool...don't you wish you still had it in the family? Isn't it crazy when you look back on the things people did that they thought were perfectly sane and we'd never do today? Sometimes I think we might be going a bit too far.

You both look awesome, Speed Racer! And yes, times were different - riding in the back of a station wagon was the best ~ no seat belts, arm hanging out the back window, ahhh, that was so fun. Can't wait to see the green Charger ~ ♥

This is such a cool photo! It's a wonder we survived our childhoods with the things our parents let us do. ;)

Amanda said...

WOW!! I love that picture. So sweet!

Christopher And Tia said...

SUPER cute picture. I've never ridden a scooter, or a motorcycle. I want to, but I'm secretly scared to death. I rode a moped once, and it took off like a rocket, and I screamed... a lot, haha. I went through a "I want a Vespa" phase, but, then I got married and had kids. I guess I still want one, but... only in my dreams, hee hee.

Lorie said...

I want a scooter!

Stephanie said...

WOW! Look at that scooter-it's so cool!!!!!!!

I just love your memories-they are always so vivid!

What a great photo! I love looking at pictures. I remember riding around in the car (not wearing a seatbelt) when I was little and playing on the floor of the car while using the seat for my toys or coloring books.

I have been wanting to join in to your Friday Photo Flashback for some time! It just takes me so crazy long to find, upload, edit my pics!

so, I hope you dont mind me linking my most recent post to your fun post in combination with the Friday Follow. It's 12:27 here! and I am still trying to figure this out :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
