Kodak Moments Make Great Memories

 It's amazing to look back through old photos and realize how much we have each changed.  My daughter, at 8, is beginning to seem more and more like a young lady each day.  Her interests and mannerisms are less and less childlike and increasingly mature.  There is certainly incredible pleasure and pride as I watch her growing into this special young lady but I can't help but feel nostalgia when I see pictures of her as my little girl.

Grand Canyon

This Kodak moment is from our family trip to the Grand Canyon in June 2007.  As a couple that leads hectic lives it's rare when we can carve out time to get away for a few days.  This is probably the last true family vacation that we have taken (we've stolen away for a few days since but nothing this long).  The trip was extra special because my husband's parents were able to join us as we toured Scottsdale, Phoenix, & Sedona, Arizona.  It was all of our first trips to Arizona and it was such a delight to experience the terrain and climate so unlike what we have here on the East Coast.

Living here in the US gives us many opportunities.  However, it means that we spend way too much time away from the family members that we love so much.  This trip allowed us to spend time with some of that family and especially allow our children to really connect and get to know their grandparents.

Every time I see this picture I smile.  It brings back memories of a wonderful vacation spent with people I love.  Besides, what better complement to one of the World's natural wonders than my little wonder!

Your daughter is adorable, and I'll bet by now, turning into a beautiful young lady. I have a 13 year old. I know what you mean about taking time away with the family, but we have the same scheduling conflicts, and my husband works nights, as a chef, at a local restaurant. He doesn't get home until late. I've developed a habit of falling asleep on the couch, in front of the TV,  until he gets home. Then we have some time together before I have to go back to sleep. There are some weeks, when my daughter doesn't see him at all until the weekend...which he works half of.

There's something really magical about that area in Arizona. I'm addicted now and plan to be back out there in January. I have some pics of my dad's last trip ever that were taken out there. That place holds a special place in my heart too.

Oh, Stacey-Ann, what a gorgeous, gorgeous photo...she is just so beautiful!  I bet she is growing into a lovely young lady, now, too.

Stacey, Your Kodak moment brings back Grand Canyon memories for me.  We went when our daughter was about 6 and at the time was in to a book called Brighty of the Grand Canyon.  I stayed with our son who was 3 while my husband took the walk down Brighties path (lol). That is a precious picture of your daughter.  Our children are now 25 and 28 so that was going way back.
