Snapshot from New York City: 1976.

My dad sent me this picture yesterday. Our family had driven to the northeast for my brother and sister and me to stay with our aunt and uncle in Connecticut while our parents went to the Olympics in Montreal. We were at the Statue of Liberty. I believe my sister and I have matching Famolares with white socks - quite stylin'!

How sad to see the Twin Towers behind you. We have a photo of Bob, Laura, and I taken in 1995 with the same background. Who would have ever thought......?

I love this picture of you three! I love seeing the 70's garb and I love seeing the Twin Towers ... it just feels like a simpler place in time. How sweet of your father. Xoxo-BLC

I had not heard the word Famolares in so long. I had several pairs of those. What a hoot to be reminded of those wavy soles! I really enjoy your blog as I grew up in TX and spent loads of time shopping with my mother in Dallas. I also went to Ga Tech like your dad. Your family is so precious!

I loved my Famolares. My Mom took me to Nordstrom to get them for school.

What a special picture for so many reasons.
