Throwback Thursday #10

In keeping with the Pinks&Blues tradition, here is another walk down memory lane.

Once there lived a boy and a girl. They were brother and sister. The girl was a year and a half older than the boy, but many people now call him the older brother. Many years later (nine, to be exact), another little brother was born.

In the beginning, long before Baby Bro entered the world, Middle Brother (aka Older Brother) and the sister were joined at the hip. They were the best of friends, until they started to grow up and become adolescents. They did everything together, including brush their teeth together. They grew apart, but would do anything for each other because they are familia. I luv you, Bu!

Their family used to go on lots and lots of family vacations. Road trips to New York and Florida and camping trips to Algonquin, Gatineau, New Brunswick and Virginia were yearly adventures the family made together. They even traveled with their cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and close family friends sometimes. Trips to the countryside in Quebec to go apple picking, strawberry picking and corn picking were memorable outings. They even went to the Drive-In movie theatre as a family.

But, alas! That was then...and this is now. My, where has the time gone? The sister is now married. Middle Brother is married and he has a five month old baby boy. Baby Bro is now twenty-one and finishing university. I don't know why, but this post makes me think of this song.
