Ruby Tuesday Travels Back in Time

I was inspired by Ralph of Airhead 55 (out of Connecticut), who often posts photos from his childhood and of his own children. Thanks, Ralph!  Here are The Girls going for a walk up a country road.  The one in white is the older sister, but by only sixteen months! This was taken in Spring of '92. They were three and four. Now they are twenty-two and twenty-three.  Yikes.

" We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it. "
~George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss, 1860

What's been going on with all of you? How did February decide to treat you?
Fondly, PS

  1. Always good to look back in time, even if it brings tears, either of sadness or happiness.

  2. I always love to looked at old photos. Reminds us of the old good days. Too bad in my family we don't have a lot of photos. Thanks for sharing!

  3. they're precious :)
    this photo is a treasure

  4. This pair is absolutely beautiful. And I notice that the older one is taking he responsibilities seriously by holding her little sister's hand. It was fun in the days when we picked out their clothes for the day, and the simple pleasure of their learning about life and wondering in the world of discovery!

    Their journey is amazing as they grow - and have our good qualities and values instilled into them. A labor of love as parents, but one we were delighted to perform!

  5. It's really a precious capture. Love the expressions! Happy day to you!

  6. What a pair of cuties!

    ...and they still are, aren't they??

    Thanks for sharing these, I have so few pictures of them (you were always the Family Historian, for which I thank you from the bottom of my heart!)

  7. That's such a beautiful picture - seeing it made my heart skip a beat. Time does pass quickly, doesn't it?

  8. This is so precious.

    Happy Ruby Tuesday!

    Mine's here.

  9. What a great photo. It looks like they are going somewhere.

  10. Lovely photo, Gina!

    As I get older, I start to look at my daughters and think of where I was at the age they are now. Recently I realised that my older daughter is now as old as I was when I met her mother, or a year older than her mother was when she was born.

    The realisation of one's own ageing is not always easy but, on the other hand, it helps me to relate to her better as the adult she now completely is (even if a deep secret part of me will probably always see her as my little girl!)...

  11. Hi !

  12. Thanks to everyone who commented. I wish I had enough time right now to address each comment!

    SG1 appears to be carrying a piece of paper. Could it be a letter? And SG2 is clutching something in her tiny fists. They both dug their transitional objects! They were almost like accessories! :-D
