You know, when you blog about traveling, you do what you can to make it worth reading for anyone who, well, reads the blog. But when you’re traveling to visit family, there’s those inevitable photos of family that you really can’t make people appreciate the same way as those in the photos.
Yet, I post these photos anyway, mostly for posterity, and because one day Najwa and her cousins will be able to look at these photos and laugh at how small, how young and how silly they were. Speaking of photos, the lady dug up some old photos from way back in the day of her people.
Here’s Nduku’s great grandma [her dad’s grandma] with her [the great grandmother] granddaughters when they were itty bitty kids. Most of them are in the photos below all grown up.
Below is a photo of Nduku’s parents on the left, with Nduku’s older sister, Kavutha next, with Nduku’s grandma [who you’ll see in photos below] holding Nduku and sitting next to Nduku’s uncle Sammy [also below].
This photo is of Nduku’s grandpa [below] with the father of the Nduku’s friend, Maureen, who introduced us.
Now, back to the present, here are Nduku’s grandparents and their great grandchildren, and grandchildren and children [technically, anyway]. Here are Nduku’s grandparents, the same as the ones in the photos above, with their grandchildren.
Here are Nduku’s grandparents with her mom on the left and her aunts on the right, the same aunts from the first throwback photo at the top of this post.
