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!

Disneyland-1976

I loved going to Disneyland when I was little! I still remember the ticket books that you had to purchase to get on the rides, and I used to enjoy riding on the monorail. My dads cousin lived in Southern California, so we would visit the park with our cousins. It's funny how 99% of the people who visit Disneyland take their picture in the same spot!!

My sister is on the far left, I am in the middle, and our mom on the right. My younger cousin, Joann is in the front.

What a great picture!
I wonder what kind of camera you Mom had at that time!

Alicia, The Snowflake said...

OH what a great memory! I love going to WDW. I've got lots of fun memories there, myself!

Disney is so much fun! I love that everyone takes their pics in the same exact spot!!

Chris said...

i dream of going there one day!!!

Karen said...

You look so cute :)
I've been wanting to go to Disney Land since I was 8yrs old but it hasn't happened yet.

I would've joined today. I brought back so many pics that I would like to share with me this past Thanksgiving when I went to visit my family but, dang scanner stopped working :/

Much Luv

Helene said...

What an awesome picture! We have pictures of us in that same exact spot too!!!

Wouldn't it be funny one day to have everyone post their Disney pic in that same spot, with the date that the pic was taken??

Denise said...

Sweet picture.

Julie the Army Wife said...

I love Disneyland! We grew up 20 mins from it so always had passes. I don't remember the ticket books but my husband does. I think they got rid of them when I was like 2 or 3 or something.

Natalie A. said...

Oh, how fun! You must have had fun there as every kid does who goes! Great picture! Thanks for sharing the fun for us on Friday!

sweetpea08 said...

Oh yes...I have picture in the same spot! So fun to look back!

Beth in NC said...

Awwww, you're so cute!

Girl, I need to find some more pictures to scan so I can join in again.

Scatz said...

Lovely photo. Disney World is every childs dream... but a long way from UK!

Susie said...

That spot is screaming "take your picture here!!":-)

Annette Kerr said...

Thanks again for starting this great blog hop, and for sharing your lovely photo!

I visited DisneyWorld, Florida, with my family for the first time last summer. It was a wonderful holiday. We all had a ball, and hope to return in a few years...

I too have posted a holiday snap for today's blog hop! :)

WE have gotten to take our boys twice. This last time, we had so much fun as they are older now. My hubby´s family is from there as you know and we have gotten free tickets because one of his relatives works there. So awesome especially for a missionary family.

I got a major major headach from the Matterhorn! my word we must have gone on it one too many times. LOL

Very very cute picture!

amanda said...

i have never been to disney land, but to disney world in FL. either way i'm sure they're both as fun as the other. i can't wait to take our kiddos. though we may have to drive because of plane ticket costs!! love the picture!

jen@odbt said...

Yes...I think I do have the same picture when I was that little. You all look so cute.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Aren't family vacations the best! I've never been to Disneyland...we live way closer to Disney World!

The imPerfect Housewife said...

I've never been there but I love looking at the pics! Nobody's quite wearing that "funnest place on earth" look though, which is pretty typical for family photos at awesome places, am I right!!?? You're adorable - love this ~ ♥

LDH said...

Good morning, Alicia!

Playing Friday Photo Flashback for the first time today!

I was never to Disney when I was little but we took the kids when they were young. I would love to go again! We went to the one in Florida.

Thank you for hosting this fun meme!
Kindly, ldh

Lauren said...

I absolutely love Disney Land!! We used to go allll the time when I was growing up ... we had season tickets! Oh how I wish I still lived in California!!!!

Veronica Lee said...

I have a similar pic too! What wonderful memories this brings. Thanks Alicia!!

Lisa said...

I got in such a hurry, I spazzed and forgot to link back but I fixed it:)

That's a lovely pic!! I bet you all had such a good time that day.

Dayle said...

Yep... we took a picture in the same place back in 1987.

I like the idea of your Friday party. Will have to join up sometime.

Dayle said...

P.S. Ours was in Disney World, but looks much the same.

Deborah Ann said...

You were so blessed to go there when you were little! When I was a kid, a girl at my school got to go to Disney as a Christmas present. I wished I could have gone.

So we took our kids years ago, and now we're taking our grandkids. In some small way, I feel like this makes up for that unfulfilled childhood dream...

Amanda said...

I had to laugh when I say this picture... I just might have the exact same one!! (you are cuter though!)

Blessings-
Amanda

marie said...

This is a wonderful idea ~ I'm going to try and join in the fun next week. I read about Friday Photo Flashback on LDH's blog (#13 on MckLinky.
I've neve been to Disneyland...but Walt Disney World is our favorite vacation spot!

You have a lovely family and a very nice blog! I enjoyed my visit!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

I think my sister and I have a picture that's almost identical to that from when we were kids...

Erin said...

We grew up in So Cal and I have to confess I don't think there is ONE picture of us as children taken at Disneyland (and we went every single year!)...isn't that weird?

I feel so left out!

P.S. Kids today don't even understand the phrase "E-ticket required!"...remember coming home with lots of unused A,B, and sometimes C tickets?

Nina said...

Oh Disney how fun! I never got to go as a child. My mom did take me when I was in my early 20's and we had so much fun. A trip I will never forget.

chili pepper said...

We do have several photos of our family in the same spot. We love visiting Disney, too. Sometimes I think we like it more than the kids!

Have a great weekend!

Kat

Crystal said...

We are getting ready to go to Disney - this was great to see.





Looking for great folks to follow me...

Michelle said...

That picture just made me smile! I'm pretty sure there is a picture of me in that same spot when I was a kid.

I wonder if referring to something fun as an "E-ticket" ride will die out with our generation?

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Great photo flashback! And you are so right! We are part of that 99% who have taken a photo in that "spot"! haha

I was also looking at the photo of your mom and can really see the resemblance (especially in your two smiles and cheeks) between the two of you...since your photo is on your sidebar, next to this one at Disney.

Blessings & Aloha!
(Agh! I really want to join in, but just got home from work and cleaning up...it's 7:30 pm here..and my hubby suggested eating out...so it may be tooo late to join in. Cuz it takes me for.ever to get a post together! :o)

He & Me + 3 said...

Never been to Disney Land...but Disney world is fun. Cute picture. How fun for you all!

Stephanie said...

Wow! Love that pic-I've been to Disney World once but never to DisneyLand! So cool.

Muthering Heights said...

What a FUN memory!! Have you taken a photo of your own family in this spot? :)

Sawatzky family said...

Love this photo :p
My family does have an almost exact shot with my mom and us girls and my Grandma...long black hair an all! lol
Great memories ;)

JamericanSpice said...

Oh fun memories.
I have not yet been to Disney and would love to go sometime.
