Retro Photo - Snow Kids

I haven't done a retro photo post in awhile, so it's time!

This particular image is one I captured of my kids on a rare snowy day.  The Portland area only receives a measurable snowstorm every 5 years or so.  When white stuff does accumulate, the entire metro area goes nuts.  Kids of all ages rush outside to play in the snow.  Which is what we did that day.

This photograph is from around 1992.  My daughter, always the ham, produced one of  her super-cute expressions.  My son, the master builder, couldn't have cared less about the camera, and kept working away on his snowman.  One of the reasons I like this photo is it really captures the different personalities of my kids.

  1. Awesome! I think I have photos of my kids playing outside during this very same snow 'event' :)
    Cute kids BTW!

  3. What a great shot! I really love how you've captured their personalities - that's priceless. Thanks for linking up on Flashback Friday :)

  4. Such a cute photo of the kids! I had no idea you got such little snow in Portland when you're always skiing not far away.

    Still waiting for snow in Chicago....
