TRIP TO SYDNEY 1974/5

Continuing My Story
After Christmas in 1974 I took the girls to Sydney for a short holiday to see my parents and for them to see their grand daughters. Bill had to go to work. Carol fell asleep on the plane and Sonya cried because she had pain in her ears. It was fun trying to carry both of them out of the plane with a bag, and down stairs in those days. Finally, I got the attention of a flight attendant to help me. Grandma and Granddad took us to a park to feed the ducks.

What on earth am I wearing??? This activity probably led to my back problems now.

I loved my babies.

It was hard trying to get the colour back into these 43 year old photos. Saying goodbye to Grandma and Granddad before flying back to Brisbane.

  10. Sweet memories! Your girls look so much like you. (Or sort of the other way round, looking at younger you in these pictures.)

  11. Sometimes it hurts when I look at these old pictures when I was a young mother. I was lucky I mean for my back, my little son hated to be carried, lol !

  12. That's an armful! Restoring color on the old photos is a challenge and you did a good job. I used to take 3 little ones on a plane to Florida to visit their grandparents, so I understand your back pain. My biggest problem was always corralling them as they all wanted to be on their own two feet and going in different directions.
