Picnics and Cookouts ~ Friday's Favorite Family Foto
Apparently my family liked to have picnics and cookouts back in the 1920's. I remember when I was a child...NOT in the 1920's...going on picnics with my parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents. There was plenty of food and music. My dad and uncles played guitars and mandolins. Many photos I've found of those get-togethers show one of those musical instruments. Some of those picnics were near running creeks in beautiful West Virginia and I remember our car being driven right into the water and what fun it was to wash it there.
The photo above is apparently of a cookout. My great aunt Kate and uncle Roe are the couple in the middle. She's holding a frypan.
This is my great aunt Kate with some of the kids in the family...nieces and nephews - she had no children of her own. My dad is the boy standing on the left in this photo and his older brother is on the right. My uncle - on the right - was in an earlier Family Foto...he was the boxer.
I love old photos and I hope you all enjoy seeing them.
Let's go see what my friends have posted as their family photos today. Don't forget to leave a comment so they will know you visited.
