Happy Throwback Thursday

It's Thursday again, time for another throwback layout.  This one is a real throwback...almost 70 years.  The layout is a current one, but the photo was taken in 1946.  Almost 70 years ago, my Dad's family started having family reunions.  They had them annually for quite awhile, then they switched to every other year.  At every reunion, the family takes a group photo.  I have been blessed to be able to attend every reunion but 1 since I was born.

Today's layout features the family photo from the first reunion in 1946.  If you look closely at the photo (click on the photo to zoom in) you'll see my dad (age 17) in the last row.  He's on the right in the group of  three.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Blessings!
