In front of their house (or possibly her grandparents' house) in Denver in 1944. She would have been four years old.
The little accordion! I love it!
Mom at the Grand Canyon in 1948. They lived mostly in the southwest while she was a child. My grandpa loved taking pictures. My mom says he would often make her stand in precarious places for the best shot.
This was taken at Bear Lake when my parents were engaged, spring 1964. My mom's hair. I adore it. She got teased a lot about being a redhead, though.
My parents coming out of the temple after they were married. Looks like back in 1964 they didn't make quite the production out of weddings that we do. They just look so fresh and happy.
This is fall of 1964, I think. My mom with her father-in-law and two new siblings-in-law at the farm in Idaho. I don't know why I like this one so much, but I feel like I can almost tell what my mom's thinking in this photo.
My mom expecting her first child in 1966. She always dresses so classy.
Our family with the Luke grandparents in 1978. This is the mom of my childhood, the mom I remember.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
