My Mom before my Time

Happy Mothers Day
The first picture shows my parents ready to leave on their honeymoon from her home near Chicago. That would be in September, 1940. Her father loaned them his car to drive around the Great Lakes, but they only made it halfway when he needed the car back. He was in the Naval Reserve and was called into active duty because World War II was heating up in Europe. 

Skipping forward a few years, we see my mom with her first child, my older brother. A caption said “We found the Appalachian Trail.” Mom loved the mountains and passed that on to her children.

  1. To pass on a love of mountains seems like the zenith of motherhood to me.
