Throwback Thursdays # 3 - Summer Vacation

Pinks and Blues girls have got me hooked on this weekly tradition! Only they have been able to convince me to go back down memory lane and revisit some pretty bad hair days.

Here are me, my sister and our surrogate littlest sister Cecilia, who is actually now our baby brother's godsister. Her mom and ours are best friends from the time my sister was born (they met when my mom went to hospital; Cecilia's mom was there at the birth). She is a fair bit younger than us, but was so mature and fun from the time she was born, she was, and continues to be, just like our baby sister. Our shorts even match!
Not that she's a baby anymore, she's a successful psychologist down in Texas now, but continues to be as cute as a button. (I hope you're reading Cecilia - this is but one of the sweet photos we have of you as a kiddie!)

This is us at the CNE Garden centre - don't we look so hot and uncomfortable? Oh the lovely Canadian National Exhibition - bittersweet because it's always held the two weeks just before the end of summer and the beginning of school. I think it's so cute that our baby bro is so tiny between us, even on the step! And remember what I said about matching outfits - I guess I forgot about these unfortunate ones. I'm glad I finally grew into my legs - aren't they ridiculous?!

I love this shot, I think I was about 15, and baby bro about 3. He was always hamming it up for the camera and had about a thousand pairs of overalls. He did look so cute in them though. This was just before we took a cruise through the Thousand Islands on our way home from our annual Montreal trip one year. It's so funny how I'm always carrying a purse! And this confirms where my son's potential bow-legs come from.
