I Heart Faces: Nostalgia



This week's theme at I Heart Faces is "Nostalgia." Kind of a wide open topic and I was drawing a blank, so I just scanned through my pics until...

I found this one.




And I got that warm, fuzzy, nostalgic feeling.

The picture is my oldest son and my grandpa on his pontoon earlier this summer.

It brings back so many memories of me fishing with Grandpa. Not that I was ever very good at it or actually liked the fishing part of it all that much - my grandma reminds how I used to panic and say "I think I'm having a heart attack" every time I got a fish on my line - but they are wonderful memories of doing something with my grandpa that he LOVES.

Grandpa just had us four granddaughters to take fishing, but now there are two great-grandsons and he was SO excited to take them out on his boat. And the boys were equally excited.

My dad was on the boat with us as well and as we were there, I realized - here we go with the next generation - grandpa and grandchildren making memories together.

I hope they always remember those times. And get that same feeling.
