Welcome to our regular feature, Saturday Snapshot, our opportunity to showcase photos we or friends and family have captured.  The event is now hosted by West Metro Mommy.

Today’s photos will showcase family moments….


Here is Fiona, my 17-year-old granddaughter, who loves clearing out her closet and finding things to wear that she had forgotten about:

Here is a shot of some very cuddly children:  Fiona’s nephew and nieces, Maddix, Lilly, and Bella:

And here is another set of offspring:  two of Fiona’s nephews and a niece, Lexi, Logan, and Lane:

Now let’s head to Berlin, where my eldest son, Craig, the photographer, is impersonating someone familiar to us, who also happens to love donuts: (Dunkin Berliner is one of Craig’s blogs).

Now let’s take a look back several years, when Craig was visiting some of our family in LA.  Some of you may recall photos of the Three A’s over the years:  Alec, Aubrey, and Aaron.

Here they are, disguised as monkeys, tumbling over Craig.  He calls this photo “A Barrel of Monkeys.”

And while we’re looking back, here is a photo I found while clearing out an old trunk; it is my daughter Heather, at age fourteen.  I love this one!

That’s my Saturday, with the spotlight shining on the present and the past.  What are you sharing today?



  1. What a wonderful collection of little faces. Love the two peas! Wait…they have Dunkin’ Donuts in Germany?!?! Never would have thought it. It drives me crazy that as we travel west on our trips, the Dunkin’ Donuts disappear. Have a great weekend, Laurel!


    1. Thanks for returning the visit, Sandra, and I love the monkeyshines too! LOL

      My eldest, of the Dunkin picture and the monkeys, is fun to be around, and since he lives in Europe, we mostly see each other on Skype or online.


  2. In my teen years, I used to clear out my closet every spring. I love the sweet peas, Dunkin Doughnuts, and monkeys. They’re hilarious! Thanks for sharing these precious photos.



Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
