I scanned a stack of old photos earlier this year my Aunt Jackie had found. Here is one of the last two I need to catalogue and that I also wanted to share. (The other requires me to get a new photo to post about it and I keep forgetting to get that photo)
This picture makes me think of the excitement children feel with snow and the desire to go play in it. Bundled up to go play, warm enough the snow has melted on the step. In fact, you cannot see snow in this picture. But I already had the picture below that is likely the same day.
It appears Doug still has all of his front teeth, so he is probably 5 or 6 years old, Mom is two years behind him in age, and she could certainly be 3 or 4. She seems to appear more like 4 than 3.
Doug was born July 1952, Mom March 1954, so this could very well be the winter of 1958-1959. The house is located at 142 North State Street in Richmond, Utah and is still there. I have written on this before, but my Grandparents, Norwood & Colleen Jonas, built this home.
Another fun photo of years past. I quite enjoy the look on Doug and Mom’s face. The hand on the shoulder, the happy/giddy look, the exuberance of youth!
