The Good Ol' Days

I've spent the past week packing up our house and decided to take a little break. We leave for New Jersey on Saturday and besides packing all the stuff we're taking, I've had to pack up all the stuff we're not taking because we're having some friends live in our house while we're gone. So needless to say, I've been extremely busy but now my house looks spotless. All the cupboards, counter tops, closets, etc. are completely empty. I found this picture while I was sorting through some stuff...
I don't remember being this age but I definitely remember my dad being into origami and making us crazy hats all the time like the one Ashley is wearing. He used to teach nursery so he got an origami book and the kids loved it. I have another picture somewhere of me wearing an origami graduation hat my dad made when I graduated from nursery. I also found this lovely picture...
I feel like maybe we were all too old to be naked in the bath together but I guess we were best friends so it's okay. Ashley and I were a little more modest than Jenna, who was not afraid to flaunt what she did not yet have. I still can't fathom the reasoning behind three grown girls taking a bath together. Maybe we were poor and had to save water. But at least we were tan.

Anyway, I just thought how funny it is when you're trying to clean or organize something and get completely sidetracked. It usually happens when pictures or old junior high love notes are involved. That happened to me today when I came across these pictures, but now I must get back to work.

I was probably the only one that was age-appropriate for a group bath. Also, I was probably just happy to have a tan.

Today the kids & I went to the park. Some man walked by with his little, white, fluffy dog. Chase started yelling, "Water, Hi Water, Waaattteerrr!" I was laughing so hard, then got sad.
Love the bath tub photo. Hilarious, don't think I've ever been that tan.

Jami - so glad you joined the blogging world - it's about time. I hope you have a good time in Jersey!

Hahahhaahaha Jami I love it! Don't worry, my sisters and I bathed together for way too long also. I had tubes in my ears so Dana had to plug my ears for me while my mom rinsed my hair. How sweet. Sisters rule. How is Jersey? Making lots of sales?
