Sand Castles

I like this picture. It is of my father and Martha. I think it is sweet. I'm pretty sure that it was taken in New Hampshire. I remember vacationing there as a child. It was a huge old farmhouse that we stayed in with some friends. There was a guy named Seth there who enjoyed playing with me. I think I was about 4 and Seth was in his 20's. He was my first crush. I remember that he had the coolest old fashioned car...like a Model-T or something. He was married to a girl with long brown hair.

The other strange thing I remember is that we went shopping in a nearby village to look for sandals. Martha and Rachel got sandals but I didn't because we didn't have luck finding any that worked for me. I don't think I was angry...but disapointed.

I am going to learn to do water colors and I think this would make a great watercolor picture.

I have an idea that this photo is actually taken by one of the Great Lakes on our way to Minnesota. I have to check the slides.

Yeah I figured you'd end up correcting me.

Martha said...

Sorry...

I like this picture too! I don't think we have any photos of dad playing with me. I think by the time I came along they were tired of taking pictures.

Yep, yet again you all have so much funn! Sister interaction is so cool.

Martha said...

Mom wasn't much on taking pictures. She says she couldn't hold the camera still.

Priscilla said...

Jamie doesn't take pictures either...for the most part. That is why I am in none. Some day my grandchildren will ask why I never did anything with the family.
