by Carrie with Children with 46 comments

That’s me (in the fancy, red pants and magnetic Rainbow Bright belt) with my sister in 1983 at the Magic Kingdom.  And yes, my cool sister agreed to let me share this with the world!

  • Heather @ Family Friendly Frugality

    How fun! Do you remember much of the trip?

    • Carrie with Children

      I don’t really remember that much about the trip…but this picture is one I’ve seen my whole life!

  • oh amanda {impress your kids}

    Love it! I have some WDW pics from 1980 and I could stare at them forever! Hopefully we’ll get to meet in a few days! 🙂

  • A Mom's Choice

    Nice Photo Shot. Amazing how years change so much in life.

    • Carrie with Children

      Thank you! We actually took the same picture again in 1998, but it was not blog worthy… lol We both looked terrible 🙂

  • LeeAnn

    Awesome! 😀

    I hope you have a great time at the conference. I hope we’ll have a chance to meet up…even if just for some coffee or something.

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks LeeAnn! @ResourcefulMom is having a Twitter party on Friday night…you should come join us and be a part of the live audience with us!

    Oh my goodness, I think I was there about the same time. Pretty sure I don’t have any photos from our time there. Boy, I’m sure it looked just like this!!

    • Carrie with Children

      Too funny! We took this same picture again in the same spot in 1998…it wasn’t nearly as cute! lol

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks Lolo! My sister and I took that picture again in 1998 in the same spot..it wasn’t blog worthy though..we looked horrible! LOL
