Flashback Friday!

I must credit my cute friend, Lynette, with the whole "Flashback Friday" thing. She does it on her blog and I think it's a neat idea.


This photo was taken September 1, 1997 at Yosemite National Park in California. Michael and I had just gotten engaged the week before and I think his mom was curious about her new daughter-in-law-to-be, so we took a road trip. We drove my little beaten-up Honda Civic for the thirteen hour trip to central California. We had a nice weekend with Michael's mom and stepdad. I had met them before--at their wedding--when Michael and I were newly dating, but hadn't really spent any time with them. They were very welcoming. We enjoyed a day trip to Yosemite; I loved seeing the breath-taking scenery. I think this was the time Bill (Michael's stepfather) showed us how to pan for gold on the way home. To tell you the truth, I had completely forgotten this little trip until I saw the pictures. It's nice to remember.

Are you still that short? =) I love the picture, and I love the flashback Friday idea. Time to go dig out the old pictures. =)

Isn't it amazing how a photo can make you remember the little details about that day?
