Monday Memories: The Forty-forth!

January 3rd, 2010 · 9 Comments

Here’s a really silly photo I came across while looking for old Christmas pictures.

Mexico 1974

My mom is the one on the donkey!  I’m in the “Cisco Kid” sombrero.  Check out my plaid pants!  My cousin Rebecca is in the “I Love You” sombrero and my Aunt Beth is wearing “Sock it to Me”!  What a vacation that was!  My mom, aunt and I were visiting my aunt and uncle that moved to San Diego, California from here in the Northeast US.  (I mentioned them in Monday Memories last week.)  Rebecca was one of their granddaughters that lived there also.  It was my first time on an airplane.  I loved flying.  I loved California!  My aunt and Uncle lived in an apartment complex that had it’s own pool!  I thought that was the coolest.  They had a beautiful view of a mountain from one side of the apartment.  I thought that was cool, too.  I loved the San Diego Zoo, I loved Sea World, I loved the beaches!  Those are some great vacation memories!

Do you have a childhood vacation that sticks out in your mind?

I would love to hear your memories this week.  Go ahead and leave a link to your blog post or photo in Mr. Linky!  If you don’t have a blog, tell us about a memory in the comment section.  I want to hear from everybody!  (If Mr. Linky  isn’t working, you can put your link in the comments section.)  Please remember to:

    Oh my gosh – what a great photo! And it sounds like it was The Vacation from your childhood. :) Too much fun!!

    I wrote about New Year’s Eve memories, but now I’m wishing I had written about something warm and happy like you did – you have no idea how cold it is in my office building!! Brrrr!

    Hahahah!!! Fun picture!! :-) Looks like it was a great vacation for everyone!!!

    We went on a lot of camping trips when I was a kid. The trip that stands out in my mind is the one where I fell off a bridge and landed on my butt in the middle of the creek below!! I think that was in Pennsylvania.

    I also vaguely remember a trip to western Canada when I was really young — it was summer, and we were walking around in the snow in shorts & T-shirts!!

    I dare you to paint your bedroom purple & turquoise…. maybe your hubby won’t even notice 😉

    Happy New Year!!

    I love that photo! My gosh it’s hilarious! Love the hats. I’m sorry I’m late with this today Gayle. Just not quite getting it together. I hope it’s not a harbinger of things to come!
