Think Back Thursday: Bridges

I thought about being cute and clever and posting a wedding picture or two with the idea that a wedding bridges two families.  My husband suggested a picture of one or more of the girls with books because “books are bridges to another world.”

I kept digging through or scrolling through the digital photos to find a picture of a bridge.  I found one from 2004 of the family (minus me the photographer!) and in the background you see a tiny little bridge.  The girls vetoed that one: “the bridge is microscopic, Mom.  You can hardly see it!”

I found two pictures that I could pretend were bridges but my conscience would not let me choose them.  Both photos were from a trip to the seashore with the grandparents a few years ago. 

Wait, I thought.  Didn’t we get any pictures with the digital camera at the waterfall?  There’s got to be a bridge at the waterfall.  After checking multiple different folders on TWO different thumb drives, I finally found a bridge picture.

But I can’t resist the idea of posting a wedding picture (maybe because the bride is so beautiful and the little girls just adorable). This bride was a junior bridesmaid at my wedding which was ten years before this picture. This wedding was 8 years ago.  It was also BooBear’s 9th birthday.

Boobear is on the left.  She turned 9 that day.  Tailorbear’s in the middle.  She was 5.  Turtlegirl is on the right end she was 6 1/2.

Instead of reading a book, I decided this picture shows the excitement of bridging to another world through a book.  Turtlegirl loves dragons and she especially loves the How to Train Your Dragon series.  She was very happy to receive one for her birthday.

I'm so happy it's a book!

So now on to the real bridge photo.  A couple of years ago BooBear and Turtlegirl went to a girls retreat for a week on the other side of the mountains.  We turned picking them up into a day trip to the falls.  It was a gorgeous day and the falls were beautiful.
