Jump back in time.

Ok, Erin here. 
So most of these photos are from the late 1950's, but we couldn't help featuring them in a sixties sunday post! All of the photos belong to my grandparents, Syd and Helen Reimer (who are the greatest!).
This is my grandpa's 1958 ford in front of the Rosenort Co-op. What we wouldn't give to own that car today...it was even yellow and white! Perfection!

Meet my great grandmother. Unfortunately, I never got to, but I really wish I could have! Doesn't she look super sassy? I love it!

This is my grandpa, Syd. Isn't he super handsome? Here he's working at the lumber yard, where he worked with my other grandpa!

This photo cracks me up every single time! This is my grandfather's uncle Neil. On a horse. With a gun. Classic. This is taken in the mid 1920's.

Ha! Another funny one! My Uncle Dan, Auntie Marj, and Auntie Daryl in front of a deer that my grandpa shot! Also, my grandpa's amazing Fiat in the background, in December of 1959.

Here is my grandpa's sister, Louise and her daughter Bonnie in the summer of 1959 at the drug store in Morris, Manitoba.

And finally, my grandpa and his brother, Al, in Connecticut. 
The best part is the caption on the back, "Holding hands? Tut tut!"

Alright, that's all for now! More to come in the future.
Grandma and grandpa, I know you're reading this, I love you both!
