Saturday Snapshot- Revenge of the Water Pump


Saturday Snapshot

that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Alyce’s site.


I was looking through my photos and realized that I had pictures of each of my boys taken on the same day with the ice cold water pump outside my parent's house. You may notice that Mitch- on the left, seems to be enjoying his time with the water. I love the little butt crack showing and you can tell that he has his underwear on backwards. He liked having the picture on the front!   But poor Marc is obviously shocked by the cold water..check out his little belly!! Oh, how I miss those days when my boys were little!!

  10. I get that little lump in my throat when I see these kinds of photos of days long gone. Thanks for sharing...and reminding me to hold onto the moments.

    I found one of my shots today in a see-through bin in the garage, and wondered how I let it get away from me like that? I didn't realize I had packed photos with paperwork in the see-through bins. (Moved over four years ago!).

    It isn't a "childhood" photo of my son, but one taken several years ago.

    Here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT and here’s

  11. Staci, thanks for the giggle this morning -- these pictures and the story are so cute. I laughed out loud at the backwards underwear so the picture would be on the front! Oh, how the time does fly.....my son is 14 now and my daughter turned 16 (!) and I swear it was just yesterday they were in pull ups and drinking out of sippy cups!

    1. I love that age too, Margot. They were the most fun about this time and for the most part they still are. Mitch has gotten past his angry years and our relationship is better than ever! Marc is still Marc...fun loving, big hearted and goofy!

  16. So cute! I love to look at pictures of my kids when they were little. I miss those days a lot but I wouldn't trade those days for these days. Every time I hear a kid screaming in the grocery store, I thank heavens that I don't have to worry about that any more!

    1. One thing I can appreciate it that my boys never did that. They thought about it a few times but my husband quickly got that under control. Now my brother's girls were a totally different story!! LOL!

  18. I love the backward underwear too. Someone gave Vance a Ninja Turtles patch and I ironed it on the back of a pair of his overalls - he insisted on wearing them backwards after that.

  19. The picture on the bum of the underwear never made much sense to me either. I love those pics! They grow up much too fast!

  21. I hear you, I miss those day too. I hated that cold water stuff, my eldest would turn blue, he'd be so cold, but would never want to quit before the rest of the neighborhood did. I finally started to attach the hose to the laundry room just so the water wouldn't be too cold. My husband wondered why the bill for hot water was so high. Love the backward underwear too.
