Flashback Friday – Mom!

It is my mom’s birthday tomorrow. I thought I would share some photos from the 60s that my cousins sent me when they cleaned out my grandmother’s house. I had never seen most of these before that envelope of awesome arrived. Because it was my dad’s mother’s house, most of the pictures were of him, but there were a ton of pictures from right after his wedding up until he went to Vietnam, which puts most of these 1968-1970.

This picture cracks me up because we had the ship painting, the picasso print and those encyclopedias in our house my whole life.

They took a trip to Washington DC in the spring on 1969. I love how fancy they look for sightseeing. These days we would just be in jeans and T-shirts.

I adore shift dresses. She’s so cute!

This is from what was known in my family as the Big Mama Frizz era, also known as the early 70s. I think that is my sister in the picture which means I wasn’t even a glimmer yet.

I loved this kind of lawn chairs when I was a kid and how they made the weird pattern on the backs of my thighs.  I never see them anymore. People all seem to have wooden chairs or the smooth fabric ones.

This is by far my favorite of the bunch! I love it. So many vintage photos seem posed and this is such a candid and she looks so happy. By the hair, I am guessing this is right after their wedding in 1968.

When I think of my parents from my childhood, this is what they look like. I think it is from Yosemite, which would put this at 1983.

Happy Birthday Mom!

    I love these pictures! Your mom’s hair was so cute! And the dresses – I luff.

    I also love the lawn furniture. It was comfy enough, and it dried out a lot faster, so you could use it even if it had rained, or first thing in the morning.

    I love the pictures. Thank you for sharing them. Your parents look really happy :o)

    I think my mom has one of those folding chairs she took from my grandma’s house when she moved in with my uncle. I’ll have to ask.

    I hope your tomorrow is beautiful and happy (and no sadness or stabby feelings!). I’m sending happy thoughts your way. :o)

    I love looking at old photos! I recently went through a bunch of my grandparents. They’re so nice to look back on. It’s weird to think someday people will be looking through our pictures and picking out the differences over the years.
