Old or New?

Some things get better with age, right? But some things disappear and others are definitely no longer ‘cool’.

 

I got a bit carried away checking through the old slides to see what I could find…lucky for you I quit after perusing a few thousand slides…so much fun to see what was popular 30 years ago! Still popular, or not? You get to decide:)

are sleds still fun??

trucks

Barbie

Legos

Some people worry about…

sandboxes

weapons....hatchet, with a smile...how about binoculars!

guns....

learning how to 'fix' your gun at Grampa's

boys automatically know how to make a shooting sound!

see??

dart guns...and a sit-and-spin!

Everyone loves….

slides

swings

another swing....and water!!

What about….

Atari

Christmas jumping jack toy

tractor

Some things look very different, but some stay the same…

roller skates...

campfires...

fishing...

and, of course, bikes....

and more bikes!

So….old or new….which ones are still around? These all provided me with great memories. I hope you save your precious memories for your future. Looking back is beautiful!

As a cute little side note: I found these 2 signs recently! Aren’t they ‘retro’ in a scary sort of way:))

nothing like healthy chocolate sauce...

I love this one!!

Happy Parenting!
