What A Feeling!

In trying to give my life some order, you may or may not have noticed that I am trying to give each day I write a theme.  I've labeled them at the bottom of the post.  I have been inspired by  What Happens Matters a blog by Christine.  She is one of my blogging sidekicks and I encourage you to check out her blog, she blogs everyday and has really inspired to keep writing.

So with that, I introduce to you FLASHBACK FRIDAYS!!  Enjoy...

This is a picture from 2008.  My parents, my sister and her husband, and my family were in Maine for vacation and to celebrate my parents 35th anniversary.  My sister wrote a play, recreating their lives throughout each decade.  It was hilarious, full of lingo from the 70's, 80's and had lots of funny nicknames that my dad calls my mom.  My kids played my mom and dad getting married.  It was so cute, they were so excited to put on a play for their grandparents.  I think you can tell in this picture how happy they were. 

We stayed at The Anchorage in York, Maine.  I love that place.  My parents got one of the new rooms there and we stayed in the smaller rooms in back.  When we weren't at the beach, we all hung out in my parents room most of the time.  It was a really great time and such a fantastic memory that I will cherish forever.

I am also remembering that I had a horrible rotten toothache that weekend that I think resulted in a root canal and some serious medications.  I think it's a good sign that I mostly remember the good times that weekend.

See you next week on Memory Lane!

thanks for the mention Jenn! You are too sweet and I am loving getting a look into your life too :-) Esp since I see your Dad in the summer when he comes back for the neighborhood picnic!

I love the picture of your kids--they look so happy! And I love the story about your parents' anniversary. Bet it was tons of fun! Oh, we stayed at the Anchorage Inn in York too--in 2009 for a family reunion. We had lots of fun too!
