Family Photo Fun

in All Posts

My plans for a long run got aborted when I realized my daddy was coming into town! Whoops! Poor planning on my behalf.   But, I got a wedding chore done, so it wasn’t a total loss.


He brought a bunch of photos over because I want to put together a photo slideshow to play on loop at the wedding on the televisions.  We looked through HUNDREDS of old pictures of our family.  We kind of lost track of time and just ended up ordering pizza.  I had a regular slice and a small slice of spinach pizza.


Here are some of the best of the best of the See Bride Run family:


Here’s my dad’s yearbook photo, circa 1968:


My mom and dad at my dad’s high school reunion in the early 1990s:


My baby junk:


My dad and I riding a bike (with a bottle — gotta stay hydrated!):


Me at Christmas:


My mom and dad at one of my dad’s triathlons:


My aunt at her 1990 wedding with her two bridesmaids and me, her flower girl (I look mad, but I was really happy that day!):


My grandmother on my mother’s side:


Me and my mommy:


My aunt’s sweet 1980s outfit:


Me and my first cat, Kitty:


We’re going to create a DVD of about 200 photos that will play throughout the reception.  It will include more recent photos of our friends and Future Husband and I together. 🙂


Other Eats of the Day


A Luna Chai Tea bar…. not very good! I liked the Kardea Chai Tea bar more.


An apple and a tablespoon of PB.


And some more Grape Nuts and NF plain yogurt…  I couldn’t resist!


Time to sleep! Maybe I’ll try to make up my run tomorrow with an extra long run… we’ll see!


Have a great night!

    You and your mom favor…especially in that picture of your mom with your dad at the race.

  • Julie November 18, 2008, 8:21 pm

    You look just like your mom!

  • ashley (sweet and natural) November 18, 2008, 8:27 pm

    You were such a little blond! When did your hair turn dark?

  • Justine November 18, 2008, 8:30 pm

    Wow, some of those pics from the 80’s are hilarious!

  • Caitlin (see bride run) November 18, 2008, 8:30 pm

    ashley – i knew someone would mention that!! i went brunette the day i hit puberty — my hair just turned all the sudden. 🙂

  • Mica November 18, 2008, 8:40 pm

    Those are great pictures, thanks for sharing them!

    And your crockpot soup sounds delicious. I will have to try it…once I get a crockpot!

    Oh my gosh I love looking at old photographs! Your family is too cute!!!

    I had so much fun when looking through my own family pics when we did the wedding stuff.

  • seeleelive (for the love of peanut butter) November 18, 2008, 8:57 pm

    love the pictures, Caitlin. Thanks for sharing! Goodnight! & thanks for the review on the nasty Luna, hehe.

  • Sharney November 18, 2008, 9:00 pm

    AWWWWWW! Thanks for the peek at your family photos! Your dad is so handsome and your mom is gorgeous 🙂 You definitely look like your mom! I love the picture of your two faces pressed together-so precious! I love the picture of you with your kitty-too cute!

    Sorry you didn’t get to run, but spending time with your dad was definitely worth it. There’s always tomorrow!

  • Danielle November 18, 2008, 9:30 pm

    Ahh such fun family photos, I love them! It’s so fun to look back and see how fashion, hairstyles and beauty regimens changed over time. I can’t help but wonder what I’m going to say when I look back at my pictures years down the road!

    And yay for getting to see your dad!

  • Olga November 18, 2008, 9:51 pm

    oh my God, the bridesmaid’s sleeves…They remind me of Napoleon Dynamite…

  • eatingbender November 18, 2008, 10:04 pm

    SO CUTE!! I love looking at old photographs. It’s so much fun. I was actually a blonde just like you until I was about 5 years old. Once you go brunette you don’t go back ;o)

  • LT November 18, 2008, 10:36 pm

    Ahhh i love the pictures! Fantastic 80’s and 90’s outfits/hair. You look so different from when you were a blonde little youngin’!

  • Runeatrepeat November 18, 2008, 10:52 pm

    Those pics are so cute! I was just going through old home movies and wanted to post them. Ha. You were a doll 🙂

  • Katie November 18, 2008, 11:06 pm

    The family resemblance is so striking!

    Have you and the Future Hus tried digitally “creating” your future babies? It’s a little creepy (à la “How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days”) but it’s fun!

  • Mrs. LC November 19, 2008, 4:49 am

    Totally agree on that Chai Tea Luna Bar – it definitely tasted like Chai Tea, but yech, so nasty!

  • Kristen November 19, 2008, 5:02 am

    Great pictures. I love looking back

  • Caitlin (see bride run) November 19, 2008, 5:11 am

    sharon – you’re right! family first.

    danielle – hahah i was wearing some HORRIBLE 1990s clothes in some pictures…. like double scrunch socks, etc. but i remember how COOL i felt. LOL

  • November 19, 2008, 5:29 am

    You had a cat named Kitty!!!! I just knew you were the BEST!! 🙂

    Love all the family pics – such a pretty bunch of people! You were a cutie pie baby!

    Thanks for sharing!

  • Kath November 19, 2008, 5:52 am

    Those are great!!

  • Erica November 19, 2008, 6:02 am

    What a great post! I love the picture of you and your first cat- tooooo precious! Thank you for posting these! I love looking at family pics!

  • girlrunningaround November 19, 2008, 6:33 am

    Looking through family photos is so much fun! The 80s wasn’t very nice for fashion, was it? LOL.

  • Aimee November 19, 2008, 6:44 am

    My hair changed from baby blond to brown too, although now I highlight.

    It sounds like the missed workout was really worth it!

  • Meghann November 19, 2008, 7:29 am

    Awww…I love all the old pictures. You really made me want to go through my parents photo collection and try organizing it or something. I can’t wiat to see that completed video.

    I can’t wait for dinner tomorrow either. I will try to remember to bring sneakers to walk around Lake Eola. You may need to remind me again tomorrow.

  • Bridget November 19, 2008, 7:29 am

    The 1990 bridesmaid dresses are my favorite!!

  • Heather November 19, 2008, 7:41 am

    Wow you look like your momma. Thanks for sharing!

  • Kimberly November 19, 2008, 7:54 am

    SO cute!! When I saw that pic of your “baby junk” I completely cracked up (pun not intended.) Your family seems great.

  • Catherine November 19, 2008, 7:57 am

    Aww loves it! Thanks for the warning on the Chai Luna bar too.

  • Halie November 19, 2008, 9:20 am

    Great family photos! Those all look like such fun memories!

    I LOVE the Luna Chai Tea Bar! Bummer you didn’t like it. I’m going to have to find the Kardea Chai bar, but I don’t think they sell them in my area. I’ll have to do some research…

    Spinach pizza looks so good!

  • Meg November 19, 2008, 9:34 am

    I absolutely loved all the pics. Weddings are such a great FAMILY time!

  • lauren November 19, 2008, 9:46 am

    great photos! I actually put together one for my friend’s rehearsal dinner this past summer, with music and everything. Everyone always enjoys them!

  • Heather July 19, 2010, 4:00 pm
