What memories are made of

Back in December of 2006 I took this picture of Hailey walking down the road with Grandpa. I loved it then and I love even more now.

Because in January of 2009 I took these pictures of Hailey and Grandpa on the same road. As soon as I pulled them off the camera I had a flashback to the "old picture". Grandpa and I brainstormed when I might have taken the picture in the blue coat on the road...and today I found it.

Hailey had to work pretty hard to catch up with Gramps on this day...

But as soon as he knew she was coming, he turned to wait for her...

and then they walked...

Till Hailey lost interest and came running back to me!

That first picture is just DELICIOUSLY CUTE!!!! Nothing like little girls and their grandpas. :)

And the later ones -- adorable! And what a beautiful place to take a walk.

Hope you're feeling even just a little better today....

Hugs!

You should frame those 2 photos from 2006 and today's side by side. Those memories are so precious.

OMG! I started to tear up! I never knew my grandparents, so this picture seems SO precious to me! What a beautiful group of pictures! I hope you print these for your dad and for Hailey.

What wonderful pictures Terra! It's so great that your kids have such a good relationship with their granpa - how sweet. It makes me miss my dad - he loved taking walks with his grandkids.

I hope you are feeling better!
