Twenty-five Years Later.......

Normally we can forget our ages, but not so this past weekend. Our older daughter's Girl Scout troop had a 25th reunion of their trip to Europe in 1985. And it was just before the event, that it hit me: the girls are now about the age we parents were then! Here they are sans cell phones and laptops, heading off for several weeks in Scandinavia and England. We did not hear from them while they were gone. No one could even imagine that now, could they?

And here they are in the same order last Saturday, approximately 25 years later. Three girls, er, young women are missing, our daughter one of them. She was here in April for her sister's wedding and couldn't make another trip now.

Can you find her in the first photo?

Oh, and by the way, all we parents agreed, only the girls have aged! ;)

Cute photo, both of them. That's right only our kids get older we stay the same - amazing isn't it.

I agree, 4th from the left middle row. Wow, as a girl scout we never had the opportunty to travel like that. They must have been very excited.
