A trip back to a better time

I'm feeling nostalgic this week. First Janice (Jarlady on Ravelry) was on a forum talking about her son working at a camp in Colorado. I asked where it was, and sure enough, it was the same place we vacationed when I was young. My moms siblings would all congragate there and we would all have the best time. The place is Snow Mountain Ranch and if you're looking for a nice vacation spot for your family, this place is the best. Well, it used to be, I haven't been there in many years. Here's my mom and dad at the camp. I'm sure the picture was taken with my Brownie camera.

And this has always been one of my favorite pictures of my dad. This was taken there too.Then my mom is moving in with us June 1st and we're starting to bring her stuff over here. She found this book I had when I was young. It was my favorite book, I was sooo happy to see it again.While we're being nostalgic I also found this picture of my sister, brother, and I. I'm the baby of the family.

I'm going to be a Grandmother in August. Gee, how things change. I can only hope that my kids look back on their childhood and remember the good old days. It was hard for me because there father left when they were very young. I was a single mom for many years. But I'm sure if they search hard enough they'll have a glimpse of what I'm feeling today. Now, here's my mom when we were at Disney World just last month. She was so happy because we were all there except, Casey, my youngest who's in the Marines. My brother and his two little ones and my sister, and me and my family.

I'm not the only one around here that's nostalgic today. I cleaned under my dressers this morning and found bones from yesteryear. The dogs are in heaven.

Now, on to knitting. This is the pair of socks I made for my Spring Fling swap partner, Timmie.

They are the Conwy socks by Nancy Bush. They are made with Claudia Hand Painted in Pistachio. (I love the word Pistachio)

And her is my Swirls socks by Monica Jines that I got in my first Loopy Sock club kit. I really like the way they turned out.

In closing, I hope you can all look back at a much simpler time and say Ahhh, those were the Good Ole Days.

They remind me of our vacation photos.
