Homecoming


I stole this picture from my Grandma's photo album about a year ago. Don't worry, I photo copied it and gave it back to her. I knew it was a picture of me and my mom but I didn't know when it was taken.

Several weeks back, my mom was telling me the story of my birth. She said she had a picture somewhere of her holding me at the park, when I was only 5 days old. I was born a little early so I had to stay in the hospital for a few days. I was released on the 4th of July and we went straight to Veteran's Park to enjoy the fireworks and festivities, complete with Coca-Cola.

In the bottom right-hand corner is my brother and my Grandpa's feet. And in case you're wondering, he still has those shoes.

I wish you all a safe and memorable Independence Day!
