Mia Comes to San Diego in 1994 -- Post 821 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

 I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! This is one of my favorite and most priceless family  photographs: 

This photograph was taken in the summer of 1994 at the San Diego airport.  We welcomed our foreign exchange "daughter" Mia (from Finland) to San Diego.  Linda is holding the sign, daughter Tami is smiling hard, and Mia is trying not to blush, I think.  I'm pretty sure I was taking the photo.

This event led to three weeks of fun and happiness for all of us.  Within days, we had another foreign exchange "daughter" - Anne, also from Finland - when the planned host family fell through.  We visited everything in San Diego - zoo, Sea World, beaches, naval ships, Hollywood, Universal Studios, and more.  Oh yeah, the Finland Olympic Shopping Team really enjoyed going to malls with Tami in her car - 16 year olds spending the summer in San Diego - what could be better?

This photograph is a part of my family history.  I had the photograph in my 1994 photo album, and used the MyHeritage PhotoScanner mobile app to get it into a digital image, and then enhanced and colorized it using the MyHeritage photo tools.
