A Glimpse of Gettysburg

I had hoped to have my post about the day the girls and I spent touring the Gettysburg National Battlefield ready to go for today but alas, I've still got about 170 more pictures to edit and cull through before I finally can start working on the post itself. Yeah, yeah - I know, I take WAY too many pictures!

In the meantime, while I'm working on that in between work and chores and sleep and all that other fun "real life" stuff, I thought I'd share just a couple pictures from last Monday. This first one is of Amanda and Darci that was taken near the Peace Light -

This second one is Amanda and I on top of the monument for the 12th New York Regiment located on Little Round Top overlooking The Valley of Death.

I wanted to have a picture taken there as my son Michael and I had our picture taken on the same monument when we visited Gettysburg in 1999. Gee, what a difference ten years makes - at least for my hair - but the sky looks rather the same, doesn't it?

I hope I don't have to wait another ten years to have a picture taken there with Jamie one of these days!


  1. "Yeah, yeah - I know, I take WAY too many pictures!"

    There's no such thing! I like the "then and now" shots. :) Beautiful country.

  2. You look happier now than you did 10 years ago. Just wanted to throw that observation in.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  3. such an interesting place!

    smiles, bee

  4. I have caught up!!
    so sorry to be away so long - I have been a freakin' mess
    if I was a horse they would have shot me by now ;)

    I went all the way back to Zombies - I'm still disappointed over that day although it was fun to talk - you're such a cool person and a great Mom :)
    it was a crappy day to be on a boardwalk

    love all the ghostly stuff and all your photos

    and the new layout is grand!

  5. wow amanda is getting tall.

    hopefully you and Jaime will get there soon.

  6. Between Dean and I we took about 900 photos in gettysburg..WE take way to many photos ha ha.
    The ones you have on here are really good. You need to send me the name of the camera's you have.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more shots

  7. Katherine - Amanda is getting tall but not THAT tall, I'm sitting down on the edge of the wall. She'd love to tower over me by that much, though!

  8. Love the old and new pics! What a great idea :o)


Thanks for visiting!
