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.
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!
