Friday's Favorite Family Foto: Cornfield Kids

You know how I love to look through the old pictures my mother gave me. Well, look what I found. This is a classic. It was taken in July of 1957. My little brother, Frank, and I are standing by the well at my grandparents' house. Frankie is all dressed up in his hat and somebody else's boots. I'm sure we were having fun because I remember I always had fun at my grandparents' house. I was allowed to play in the barn and the fields to my heart's content.

Oooh, those carefree days of childhood!

That is a great old photo. I have a picture of my son back when Purina Dog Chow was hosting a contest. I dressed him up in boots and a gun with our dog. He was in the cornfield and knats were flying in his face and he was mad... Your picture brought back that memory.

What a special photo! :) I cherish my old family photos and have one or two that date back to the 1800's. They are very precious. I love the boots and hat. :)

I love your photo of you & your brother. My grandparents had a farm when I was little... we ran around for hours. Our favorite things were to ride down the hill in a wagon & go treasure hunting. xoxo, Joanna
