I was going to post a different blog a few days ago, but I got sidetracked by something that I’m still mulling over in my mind. On Friday I got a roll of film back from being developed (yes they still do that) from Summer 2011. The roll of film contained pictures of my mom, dad, me, Howard, Jenn and their kiddos at the children’s water park at Moody Garden Galveston. The pictures kept me pretty nostalgic all weekend thinking about how much fun we all had that day and how happy mom looked in the pictures.
The pictures made me think about this question: If you could leave your loved ones a random roll of film for them to find after you are gone that would make them smile and be filled with wonderful, happy memories – what would it be of? What trip, event, family ritual, etc would it be?
Mine would be twofold….for my dad and brother it would be pictures from our road trip across Texas when we were little and dad kept driving into these giant safari parks for us to feed animals out of our car…usually when we had fallen asleep. And for Sean, it would be pictures from our first camping trip putting up our summer tent while it was snowing in shorts and flip flops at 2am.
Good times…good question though, what would ya’lls be?
