Daughter Lori on the Shoulders of Uncle Paul in 1980 -- Post 617 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes. This is one of my favorite photographs:

This is a photo of our daughter Lori on the shoulders of her uncle, Paul Leland (Linda's brother) in about 1980.  She was about age 6 at the time.  Paul and his father came to Chula Vista almost every year, either in the summer or at Christmas, to see our family, and we usually visited San Francisco in the summer or at Christmas every year.  I thought that the setting of this photo was in front of our house, but from the vegetation in the photo, I don't think so.  It may have been taken at the San Diego Zoo or at a local restaurant.

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film prints and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco. When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them. They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year! I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.
