Moments in Time – Grandmothers

It was a dinosaur party.  It was fun to plan, fun to do and it is fun to remember.  Both grandmothers were invited and both drove three hours to attend.  Here they both are with the birthday boy.

Years later, when that birthday boy graduated from high school, both grandmothers attended; and of course there were pictures taken.  The dinosaur birthday picture had been recreated 14 years later without any of us realizing it.

A little cropping, and we have then and now pictures.


That birthday boy grew a bit in those 14 years, and went from cute to handsome.  His grandmothers added years too; but were still beautiful and giving, and they were there again to support him.

Moments in time and the images captured in them tell a story of support, and encouragement……..a story of love.

    I really love those pictures of “then” and “now”… especially with grandparents in the picture… I may have to start digging through my “archives” and see if I can stage a “now” picture… Those are really priceless.. I wish i had pictures with my grandmother who was the only one alive when I was little.
    I truly enjoy your stories…. you are writing such meaningful memories and am sure the boys will treasure them.. Thank you for sharing with others…

    I really like what you do with the pictures. I have played around with some of my own. Thanks for the idea.
