30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 18

Yesterday we took a walk down memory lane, through children’s literature. Today I thought we’d continue that walk with some photos from my childhood. I had a lovely time looking through my box of photos, remembering some good days gone by.

Photos From My Childhood

All of these photos were taken with a regular film camera and had to pass through the hands of the photo developers before you could see them. I thought of having a camera phone in my childhood makes me chuckle. It’s probably best they weren’t invented until I was an adult.
