Travel Theme: Costume

This week’s travel theme from “Where’s my Backpack” is too great to resist! As serendipity would have it, my Dad recently reminded me of some great pics that fit the theme too. Over the years we’ve scanned some gems from the family photo archives at my Grandma’s house (who, BTW, recently rang-in 95 years). Speaking of my Dad, look how cute he was, playing dress-up with his big brother.

Dressing up as something you’re not seems to be deeply ingrained in the human condition, and my daughter is no exception in loving to pretend.IMG_6617

Tree sprite or wicked-witch, costumes make our lives richer, don’t they?
