Annual Family Photo Booth Picture

The night my husband proposed to me next to the lions in Lake Park in Milwaukee, our next move was to drive around until we found an old black and white photo booth to take a strip of pictures. So we're fans of photo booths...the old, original kind.

And when we saw these photos on, I realized that we're envious of the Goldberg family, who every June 17th, sit for a photograph to, in their words, "stop, for a fleeting moment, the arrow of time passing by." They've been at it for over thirty years now...

You can see their entire collection (from 1976-2007) here.

As I mentioned, we're envious of the Goldbergs for having their annual photo taken in an old photo booth, but we're also thankful that we do have a few days in the year that we have a family photograph taken: each Christmas and each Friday of Milwaukee's Irish Fest (where our photos are put on a large pin). And each year we look back at the years that have passed...

And as you parents know all too well...time passes quickly...much too quickly (although I'll admit, a few days don't pass quickly enough). And I can't even imagine what Mrs. Goldberg thinks as she sees the men her baby boys have become. She must be so proud of her boys and so thankful for their long-ago started tradition of capturing those precious early years...and the wonderful things each new year holds.
