After we took pictures of Cocoa, Carolyn showed me some photos of her growing up. I loved looking at Carolyn's photos. What I found so cool is that she lives in the house she grew up in -- so as I was flipping through them, I'd say " ohhhh wow, look, you're in front of the fireplace; wow look, your in the den; or OMG look, your at the kitchen sink".
I was so fascinated by her pictures that I asked her if we could recreate one of the pics. She, being a good friend (and not wanting to squash my creative genius), said sure. As a matter of fact, she was going to give the "recreated memory" to Michael as another b-day present.
The picture we chose to recreate is:
Isn't she a doll? I'm sure I had more fun than Carolyn recreating the scene. Here's what the final of Carolyn at the sink all grown up looks like!
I don't have very many pictures of me growing up that I can recreate (well, I do have one of me in front of the barracks in Honolulu (I was born there -- does that make me a Hawaiian? NO????) with no shirt and a diaper on. Hmmmmmmm -- maybe I should keep looking for something to recreate!
Anyhoo -- It was fun, and I hope I can recreate a memory again.
Happy Birthday Michael!
