Flashback Friday #13

All of my school pictures are at my parent's house... so I had to dig through some old photos that I had in my spare room. (I still can't find my stinking scrapbook and photo albums... I really hope they are at my parent's house since they definitely aren't HERE!) I couldn't pass these pictures up once I found them...

When I was 7, I had the opportunity to go with my mom, aunt, uncle and cousin on a bus trip to Toronto, Canada. It wasn't a super-long trip... since Pennsylvania is kind of near Canada... however, as a kid... it seemed like THE LONGEST RIDE EVER! I remember on the way home, I was snoozing... and I just happened to look out the window right as we passed a sign for my town - 30 miles to go! I just could not even imagine how we would EVER get there! Of course, I had no idea what 30 miles even really meant... it just seemed like A LOT of miles! But, I fell back asleep and was home before I knew it!

On our trip, I remember going to Niagara Falls and having to wear a raincoat while riding one of the boats out near the Falls. I also remember my mom bribing me with these BIG globe earrings to get my picture taken at a "Old Fashioned Picture Place". I loved those earrings... and totally wore them until they fell apart (which I then used the globe part as a Barbie Globe... because you know... Barbie needs a thing like a globe when she is teaching geography!).

Anyway, without further a-do... here I am (apparently surprised), sitting next to my step-cousin (is she picking her nose?). I don't remember where this was... maybe the Zoo? The woman and man in the front are my aunt and (ex)uncle...

Nice Glasses.

But wait... let me show you a close up of my outfit...

Notice the stone-washed PUFFY jeans that my mom dyed pink. (I LOVED those jeans!) My bright green sandals with a bow. My sweater had some kind of animal on it... I can't remember what--but it was kind of cute. AND... the purse. My FAVORITE purse. I carried that jean purse EVERYWHERE! I miss that purse... I would so totally carry it now.

One of these days, I'll have to find and post a picture of me with those globe earrings...

Join in the Flashback fun... or just browse through everyone else's posts over at Christopher & Tia's!
