I brought my laptop and scanner when I went to visit my sister a few weekends ago.  Figured I could "kill two birds with one stone."  Visit with her, and take apart my first magnetic photo album.  I carefully pulled the plastic pages away from each page and scanned the photos and newspaper articles I saved.

My mother had saved one of my birth announcements.  What a trip, a Census Book of all things!  Destiny I think.  When you open the little book, you see the baby picture.  Mom filled out all in information inside.  I really cherish it.

Taking the photo album apart wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.  I remember selecting the photos and building the pages.  The photos were just in a box, mom never put them in a family album.  So I took the box to my single, studio apartment and picked and chose which ones I wanted.  I filled the album with photos from birth to when I graduated high school.

I wish we had taken more photos that day.  It was almost dusk and the few we have aren't very good., but I love this one.  I don't have many with just my mom and me.

I plan on taking on other albums soon.  Need to rescue those other memories that are "stuck" in the past.  Maybe on my next visit...have laptop and scanner, will travel.
