Friday Photo Flashback


It's finally Friday and time for Friday Photo Flashback...honestly I wasn't sure this day would ever come this week. Doesn't mean anything different for us though since we are playing in another tournament this weekend...that's right ANOTHER tournament!

On Fridays Alicia started this meme where we can all go back and dig through our old photos,scan them and share with everyone. I love looking back through old pictures so this is perfect for me. Hop over to Alicia's and join in the fun today.

This takes me back a few years ago to October 2006 I believe. Lucas had gotten a skateboard for his birthday and we took him to a huge parking lot to try it out. We took Lucas' old bike along for Jacob to try it out even though we knew it was going to be a tad bit big for him.


Here's Lucas trying out his board...he did fairly well and only fell a few times. This was never something that he really picked up on though. As a matter of fact when I was cleaning out the backyard a couple of weeks ago this ratty old skateboard found it's way to the trashcan.


Here's Jacob. He's so tiny here! I can't believe he'll be 6 soon...depressing to think how quickly they are growing.


I LOVE this one!!!!!!! Bet you can't imagine what happened here!!!!! He had a poopy diaper and was VERY upset about it! Of course I lost my brain before we left and didn't take anything with us so we had to pack up and go home to change his diaper. That put a quick end to our day.

Cute pictures but skateboards make me nervous! My nephews have them and I have to hide my face or just stay inside when they are riding them. I told my husband I'm not sure I'm ready for Andrew to grow up and do those dangerous boy things.

I have left home without a diaper bag before and had to turn around and come back home.

Cute pictures...of course the infamous poopy diaper that comes at the worst times. LOL
I remember all to well ending fun trips because of accidents or diaper changes.

Gosh, you can so tell how Lucas and Caleb look alike in these pictures. :) Good luck this weekend with your tournament babe.

How many times did I do that? Forget to take a diaper just in case. Oh well, makes for a good story!!! Have a great weekend. I love me some baseball. Hoping to get to my nephew's ballgame tomorrow.

The joys of boys...skateboard, bikes, and dirty diapers. ;o) I bet they had a grand time trying them out. Cute pictures.

looking at old photos really brings back great and fun memories!

thanks for sharing!

Alicia said...

How cute, Steph!! LOL about the poopy diaper! I've done that before too (leaving the diaper bag at home). That does ruin the day! LOL!

For some reason, I think Allie looks like Caleb in the last picture. I know he has the helmet on, but I can still see the similarities!!!

You're right... those days fly by all too quickly! The days of diapers and potty training are just a big blur to me now and I never saw the end of it coming :) What precious memories you have even when the all too often real life interferes with the best of intentions!

Love the last pic...cute boys!

Pam said...

Aww! How sweet. If I ever forgot the diaper bag when my kids were young they would automatically have a poopy one. Figures!
I used to be good at skateboarding, but I'm afraid if I tried now I would break something!

Stacy said...

They have grown so much in just a couple of years:)

That last picture is too cute!

Laurencita said...

Hi! thanks for the visit. Nice knowing you. You have a happy family.

Sarah said...

your boys are really cute, thanks for sharing, but I like the second photo...

God bless!

I so hated it when I did that as a mama (forgetting the diaper bag and all the necessities a mom should remember.) It happens to us all though if that makes you feel any better. ;)

Tanya said...

You are getting really good with that camera! Beautiful kids!

Alicia W. said...

Guess what Chick???? YOU WON!!!!!! How awesome is that? I was so happy to see it was you. Send me your address and I'll ship out your goody's this week. :)

What fun memories! Poor little guy. We've had many an outing ruined by a poopy diaper.

It's funny. As our kids are getting older, I forget the diaper bag more and more often. It used to be that I had the perfect little bag packed: dipes, wipes, toys, food, formula, bottles, blanket, changing mat....etc.

Now, I'm lucky if I have dipes and wipes. :)

Ahhhhh, poopy diapers! I'm so glad to be PAST that point. =0)

Those old pictures were so sweet.
