Blast From The Past ~ Valley Forge 1989 and 2011

This past week we took our visitors from Texas to Valley Forge
Jessica and Sarah took a lot of photos.
I am only sharing a couple of the ones that were taken of Rachel, Jessica and I and a couple that were taken of Rachel, Jessica, Sarah, Rose and I
along with photos from the past of the girls, Court and I at Valley Forge in 1989
Here you go...

we have laughed a lot the past week!

this cannon is heavy!

wandering the fields of Valley Forge

When I was little I used to run up and down the redoubts of Valley Forge...
now I just walk
though I did manage a little run on a small, flat section of the redoubt

If you don't know what a redoubt is check out this link
and scan down to #6
though you are welcome to read all of it if you are interested

Not sure if this is the same tree from the picture of 1989 or not
I thought it was but now I am not sure.
It is a cool tree though with a nice flat spot for Jessica to stand on


I also took pictures of the 4 girls in this tree but Jessica will post them... and many other pictures she took on her blog... after the girls leave... she does not want to spend time doing that now... she wants to spend as much time as possible with Sarah and Rose now. There will be plenty of time for correcting and posting pictures after they go home to Texas.

And I can tell you...
We will ALL be sorry to see them go!!
They have been a joy to have...
and it will be a little like loosing 2 daughters.

I also have other photos of me when I was younger and of my girls, my hubby and I at Valley Forge
I will post them some other time.

The purpose of Blast From The Past is to link up a post about something from the past. You can reach back all the way to your childhood and bravely post pictures of you in your wild clothes and hair styles or post something from last year and tell us about it. I'm not picky. Hey, even yesterday was the past... LOL My posts will mostly be about events that happened prior to blogging, as a way to share those things with the world.
