Like Father, Like Son!





If you look carefully at these two photos, you will recognize that both photos were taken in the same place...that is the pier in the background and both were taken in Eastbourne, in England!  I took the photo above in October of 2015. (You know I took it, it is blurry!)
And I can guess that Richard's mother took the photo below of Richard when he was a little boy!
It tickles me to see that he is concentrating on his sand castle, so much so that he doesn't even notice anyone taking a picture of him!
 


Looking at a photo of our son from years ago when we visited a children's zoo in England, I was struck by the resemblance between father and son!

  1. That's so wonderful, that you got to take a photo in the same spot your husband was in many years ago :) Looks like a beautiful beach! I love watching kids get totally lost in what they doing, they only care about the moment. I wish us adults were like that more often and would just enjoy the moment :)
    Sometimes it's so much easier to see the resemblance when you compare the childhood photos, right? When I see photos of my mom and her mom as little girls, I cannot tell them apart :D
    Have a wonderful week!
    Lots of hugs,
    Beate

  2. The family resemblance is obvious in each and every picture you've shown us of Peter, Richard and Christopher. And if one day Christopher should have a little boy, I hope they'll take him to Easbourne, too, and take a picture of him on the beach :-)

  4. What fun to compare pictures of the generations. Love the Eastbourne pics. Over Christmas we compared photos of our son when he was the age of his own little boy - who is looking just like his Dad!

  7. We often take so many of them now that we forget what treasures photos can be. Family resemblances are fun to pick out in old pictures!

  8. Love the little boy and grown man photo taken in the same spot. I bet your husband has many stories to fill in between. Happy New Year, Kay!

  10. These are the kinds of things that make a good family history. You are wise to record them.

  11. Wonderful, cherished photos of wonderful, cherished people; a family who obviously cherish each other...and there's few better words to use other than "cherish" when it comes to loved ones. :)

  14. They really do look alike! I look more like my mum than my dad. Especially in the face. I have my dad's brains though so I'm good.
