More vintage family slides. And the theme this post is vacations!
Above we have my two sisters, heading up the boat at Lake Kabetogama, MN.
Our trip to Disneyland about 1967. Above is me on left, and sister Cheesecake Maven on the right, wearing the sweaters my Mom had made. Behind us the March Hare is getting my brother's attention. Sister #2 was just a baby and stayed at our friend's house.
We made several trips out west to stay with relatives in California and Colorado. One even involved a car trip on Route 66. I'll never forget onion rings made from chopped onions in Tucumcari, New Mexico.
Back to Kabetogama circa 1973
My brother at Knott's Berry Farm, California. Mom knitted that sweater too.
At the cousins' house, Barstow, California, 1967
In front of the Roy Rodgers museum, where they actually have his horse Trigger stuffed and mounted. I'm noticing that we wore the same outfits pretty much every day.
Again Kabetogama, our yearly fishing pilgrimage. This was probably 1975 when my adolescence took an ugly turn into straight hair and big glasses.
Above the travel weary family getting off the train in California. My parents had planned to "see the West" by train, but after a very loooonnnnggg trip with whiny kids, they bought plane tickets back home.
