More Fun in Pennsylvania

We had time for one more birthday party, across the street at the home of the Worlds-Best-Neighbors, Steve and Nancy.

And before I left, I took photos of all the pictures in my baby book. If I ever settle down, I'll take the book, but in the meantime, this will do. Here I'm helping my father build an outdoor fireplace in our backyard.

And here he's measuring me on my 3rd birthday.

And here I am with Baby Barbie on her 1st birthday. It sure is nice to come from a family of photographers!

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks? He really liked my smart phone.

The weather was pretty good until the day I was scheduled to leave. Then I woke up to SNOW!

But only a little bit, and the Harrisburg airport was prepared.

While the plane was taxiing for takeoff, I got a good view of Three Mile Island.

I felt a lot better when we got across the Mississippi River. Back in the West!

And I was treated to a great sunset just before we landed in Phoenix.

Good times and great memories. And then back to the gorgeous weather in AZ.

Keep Smiling!
Your blogging sister,

Hope your dad wasn't too partied out! Did he give you back your smart phone? Looked like he really liked it... ;c)

Sondra said...

smart phones scare me! Your dad is looking great!

Sherry said...

Love those old pictures. Boy were you a cutie! Happy Birthday to your Dad!

Me and My Dog . . . and My RV said...

Great photos! I see your mom cut your bangs like my mom cut mine. I always thought she was just a bad hair cutter, but maybe it was the style in those days to have very short bangs. You were very very cute, and still look the same. Isn't that weird? :)

A great trip to make us melancholy. Good memories for everyone.

Barbie is so cute!

Erin Erkun said...

Great photos of you as a kid ... still the same facial features.

Kimbopolo said...

Yep, I had those same bangs. What a sweet Dad!

Dawn from Camano Island said...

Yup--short bangs AND a Toni home perm every fall before school started that left me looking like I'd been electrocuted! Your Dad looks like a warm wonderful person. So glad you could share his birthday with him!

Yep, we were pretty cute. I'm so glad the weather was okay for you. I know he was thrilled to have you there.
