Happy Father’s Day! (Vintage photos of my dad, grandpa, and me :-))

In honor of Father’s Day, here are some vintage photos of my dad, grandfather, and me. I am biased, of course, but I think they are adorable pictures and I feel very lucky to have had such a terrific dad and granddad. These photos were taken in the early 70’s out in Kansas. I also included some photos of my maternal grandfather who was a pilot in WWII. (He died in the war, which is why I don’t have any pictures of him and I together).

Speaking of dads, Father’s Day, and pilots, we had a great day at the Udvar-Hazy Center’s “Become a Pilot” day yesterday. I’ll try to load up some fun pictures from that event later this week. Wishing everyone a wonderful Father’s Day!

  1. Amazing pictures that depict an historical re-telling of your family. Good memories. Great time capsule. So many of these pics remind me of my family. Enjoy Father’s Day .

    1. Hi Sandy, thanks so much for stopping by to comment. I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. I’m fortunate to have had a forward thinking grandmother. She archived everything! 🙂 Hope you’re having a nice weekend!

  2. Great vintage pictures. In particular, I think the bonnet look suits you. You should work that into your wardrobe more.

    1. Hmm… I’ll have to think about one for the beach this year. I do love my collection of ratty old baseball caps though. Will be hard to trade them in for a frilly white bonnet. 😀

    1. Hi Jacqui! It’s so great to hear from you. I hope you’re doing well. Your comment made me smile. Thanks so much for leaving one. 😀 Best wishes for a wonderful week!
