Snapshot #98: Baby Album: Grandparents

Posted on: March 17, 2017

Four years ago, I joined Saturday Snapshot. The meme invites bloggers to share photos. One of my new year’s resolutions was to create a memory scrapbook from my childhood. I intend for the project to be a work-in-progress, where I mostly post in order of scanned photos. So far, I have posted about my parents, our family dog, and personal interests. Next up are photos of my grandparents.

These photos are particularly meaningful, because none of my grandparents are still alive. The first photo was taken near the time I had been christened, and is of my grandparents on my mom’s side. They both met Andy, but long before I moved to Nebraska to date and eventually marry him. I know they both would have been proud. The second photo seems to have been taken before my parents flew to Ontario to visit relatives on my dad’s side.

The third photo is of my grandparents on my dad’s side. Although she was a step-mom to my dad, I only knew my grandmother and so to me she was always my Nan. My Poppy Hunter never met Andy, but my Nanny Hunter did when Andy and I attended a wedding of a cousin. This photo seems to be around the time of my first birthday.

In my next Saturday Snapshot, I’ll post about my other relatives, all of whom I still get to visit. Enjoy the week!

What great photos. I love your grandmother’s christening outfit. Those were the days! I only knew two of my grandparents, those early photos are special.

Grandparents are an important part of a person’s life. I miss mine.

Lovely photos of your grandparents. I just love looking at my old family photos, especially to remind me of those who are no longer here. Thanks for sharing.


Book By Book

There was a time that I used to annually look at old photos and journals. Then I got too busy, or I don’t know what happened, but I’m enjoying reliving old memories again. 🙂

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:
