Day 148 - Photo memories of Mom and Dad

When Dad died four years ago, I inherited 7 moving boxes of slides, albums, framed pictures and negatives. Dad took most of the photos in the boxes, but there are also prints that we kids sent them over the years, and some slides that Dad purchased. Most of the photos are from the 60's to the 90's and are 35mm. Clockwise from the upper left are a photo of Mom and Dad from around the time they married; a box of slides of various events for the 80's to 90's; a few rolls of 35mm negatives; a box of slides of their trip to San Diego in 1970; and the album they made after their 50-th wedding anniversary. A lot of memories and I hope to get a small portion of them digitized to pass on to my kids and nieces and nephews.

I really enjoy these peeks into the history of your family - it is a good thing for you to keep them alive for your kids and extended younger family.
