Does your family have old slides?
On Easter, Joanie decided to pull out the old projector and share a few slides with us youngin's.
You remember Joanie? The other half of Dan's parents?
It was yet another piece of irrefutable proof that Cole is Dan's son, minus the skin tone, and Cole was set on making sure we were all aware of it.
Right down to the bangs in the face.
You give that boy a tan, and he really could be a dead ringer.
I remember my parents bringing out the old projector when I was a kid. Oh, how I loved seeing pictures of their lives before me and my brother came along. They lived in France in the 1950s and I was mesmerized by the stories they would tell as they clicked from slide to slide.
Watching Joanie's slide show, I couldn't help but notice the number of photos of nature versus the Zielske kids was about 9 to 1. Most of these slides were from a family road trip to the Rocky Mountains, and most of the slides were of said mountains.
I found myself wishing for more pictures of that rag-tag Zielske brood.
It just reminded me of last summer when we took our road trip to Northern Minnesota and I asked a cute young family if they would like me to take their picture by a giant fish in front of Lake Mille Lacs. Right before I took the shot I asked the Dad, "Do you want to see the fish? or just the family?" And he replied: "The family is more important than the fish."
I think that's such a shift in how we record our lives today, don't you?
Here's a quick page I made yesterday to record our Easter Sunday. And guess what? It's pretty much all people. And just one snake.
