Photographs seemed to have slowed down a bit by my 3rd year but I did find a few that were memorable. Thanks to my dad for captioning them.
Looking Behind 1957
Looks like my sister had a fun party with lots of kids in attendance.
My dad apparently loved this photo and captioned it “The greatest picture ever taken – 1957” I’m not sure it really qualifies as the GREATEST picture – he may have been a bit biased – but it is pretty cute.
My sister has her eyes closed tight as she made that wish! I wonder what was going through my head? Maybe “Yikes, there are a lot of candles on that cake”?
Since my birthday is right before Christmas, this looks to be the closest picture of me near my 3rd birthday.
Christmas Carolers 1957
And my top 5 posts over the last three years:
Byron Hot Springs – October 23, 2011
My grandmother was a packrat! – July 8, 2012
Sentimental Sunday: Fresno High School – November 6, 2011
Awaiting Shipment – May 12, 2011
My Favorite Page – October 20, 2013
And even though this post wasn’t in my top 5, and not even in my top 10, I have to add it here because it was my all-time favorite. Not because it was such a great post, but because it was the culmination of one of my greatest discoveries and proudest moments – the story of finally getting my 3rd great grandfather’s grave marked. At times when I feel like I’m not making any progress I go back and read this post and remind myself that I have made A LOT of progress.
