  1. Ohhh! It’s wonderful to hear about adventuresome childhoods! I can soooo see me and my best friend doing this as kids! Just we would have been the pirates… *sheepish grin*

  2. I loved this post so much! Had me giggling all by my lone little self 😉
    My brother and his friend used to lock 3 of us girls up in an unused room-ish thing in our barn-ish building. Then we’ld make try to break out. Our favorite game until our parents prohibited it 🙂 I was 9, too. Too this day the boys insist they always won and they had us good. Us girls say we got out faster then they could get us in again and that we were smarter 😉

      Haha! I love it, Naomi. 🙂 Obviously you’re correct. Girls have notoriously better memories.

  3. Loved this post, Tasha! Did you arrange for children you now know to pose for the photos? Or did your mom take photos after she recovered from shock and awe? =)

    My brother and his best friend tied me up and left me in the basement (which isn’t quite as bad as it sounds because it was a finished basement). Unfortunately I was NOT in possession of Nancy Drew skills (plus I was 19) so I yelled for help until I was hoarse and my parents came downstairs (notice there is no mention of rushing) only to gape at my predicament and laugh hysterically! Must not have been any film in the camera or there would be photographic evidence! Wonder if those silly boys thought they were pirates!

      This is my nieces and nephews FAVORITE story for me to tell– so they posed for the photographs and laughed their heads off in the process. 🙂

      You were 19?! That’s hysterical. I was probably 9ish. No true photographic evidence but that’s nice so I can retell the story with as much pomp and fanfare as I please. 😉
