Welcome back for our third installment of the “A Look Back” link-up! This month we are taking a trip back in time to the year 1986. Where were you and what were you doing that year? We want to know, so link up your posts below!
Oh, 1986… The year we got a video camera.
I was one-going-on-two at the start of 1986 (that video is from the end of the year, at Christmas), and I looked a LOT like my little 18-month-old does now!
We were still living in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, but we moved into a condo. #5. I have lots of memories from that condo. There was a huge (or maybe I was just small) shared backyard and a swing set in the front, as well as a wooded area on the other side of the parking lot where I once fell backward into a giant puddle of water. But that was a different year.
Since I don’t personally remember much from 1986, and since my brain is mostly mush from our move, this post is going to be mostly photo memories!
My favorite ride at Funtown, where I would later be hired as a singer/dancer and meet my future husband!
