52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History – Toys

My favorite toy was probably when I was around 10 when for Christmas I received Rom, a Space Knight!  Oh my gosh, I thought he was the coolest thing going!  He had these attachments that would light up, make noises and just looked awesome.  Believe it or not, Rom and R2-D2 were great friends; they went on many adventures together.

I’m including a video below that I found from when Rom was first released.  Yes, it’s a cheesy commercial but that’s from my youth and it brings back good memories!

2008 Fall Cleanup

[singlepic id=88 w=320 h=240 float=left]At times it’s hard to get all the kids involved in an activity, so it’s a rare treat to see them all engaged in trying to clean the yard before winter.  What made it even more special for the kids was their Grandpa Peterson (Kara’s dad) making a rare appearance and helping them out.  If you notice in the images, my youngest daughters are probably getting the better end of the deal.  Before anyone cries foul, all the kids were thanked, hugged and fed a fantastic barbeque that Kara prepared while they were working!  Does it get any better than that?  I don’t think so.

If memory serves, I remember being lucky to get a grilled cheese after spending all day raking leaves as a youth.  I swear sometimes that yard must have been set aside as a national park!

I hope you enjoy the images!
