Photo-Hunt Childhood

Image Hosted by

This weeks theme is CHILDHOOD. You can join the photo hunt by going

  • and view the blog list for them on my side bar.

    The theme this week is CHILDHOOD and I thought about using a photo of my kids or grandkids. Instead I found this one of ME!. I remember this lazy summer day. I was 9 and living in Georgia. My dad was in the Navy and stationed in Hawaii at the time. Mom had gone home to her family with us kids. A few months later President John F. Kennedy was shot, we practiced air raid drills at school and life slowly changed. Aww the innocence of childhood.

    Life was so much simpler back then even though it probably didn't seem like it the adults. Great picture with some great memories!

    Gosh, that sure brings back memories of cooling off with the hose when I was a child:-) Often times I wish we could go back to our childhood and its innocent ways! xox

    What a fun photo! 1963 wasn't a great year in the fall, that's for sure. I don't remember too much, only my mom staring at the Zenith for days on end.

    This was a year after my brother was born so I would have been 10 and just moved from Virginia to Indiana. The day JFK was shot is one of those burned in memories along with the shuttle disasters and 9/11. Every generation has its loss of innocence moments... each seems worse than the previous.

    Hi Autumn. Sorry for my late visit. Thanks for sharing this memorable photo of your childhood. It must have been fun playing with the water on a summer day.

    It must have been a scary time when JFK time.

    Thanks for visiting my photo hunt. Take care!
