Throwback Thursday #13


Yay! It's Thursday! You know what this means! It's Throwback Thursday time! Make sure you check out the Pinks and Blues Girls' blog too. They're the geniuses behind these weekly walks down memory lane.

This set of photos are pretty special to me. I often post old pics of my family on my mom's side. The reason for this is because I don't have too many photos of my dad's side. We are all separated geographically (Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec, New York, Trinidad, and the Dominican Republic). It's hard to get together on a regular basis. Growing up, I lived just around the corner from my cousins on my mom's side, so we saw each other all the time.

In the first photo, I'm with my cousins from Toronto and the Dominican Republic. Now, some of them are in their 20s and the rest are teenagers! I cannot believe how fast time flies! I don't know why, but both my brothers are missing, along with my two cousins from New York and my cousins from Ottawa and Quebec.



Here's a family photo with my grandmother (Dad's mom). She's a really fit lady! She goes speed walking in the mornings! I can't believe how little BabyBro is in this photo! Now he's in his last year of university!!

Isn't it amazing how 1998 doesn't seem all that long ago, but people look SO different in pictures back then? I was looking at a photo of my cousin recently from 1998 and she was practically a baby... now she's a freshman in college! It made me feel really old! :)

Happy TT! Great photos, as always, C!

A total bonus of being asian - you look the same when you're teenagers till you hit 40. Sweet.

Ok, the pink is officially very hard for me to read. I'm getting old, you know.
