    My dad recently found and uploaded this old Super8 footage of him, my mom, and some family friends (who we still know!), hanging out on the weekend. My sisters and I are about the same age as they are in this footage, and it is absolutely incredible seeing them like this. My mom (w/ the pet pig in the beginning, brunette w/ white shorts later) has the same looks, body language, and even mannerisms are almost exactly like my sister’s, and it is so strange seeing my dad (Redhead, solo cup) act with the same facial expressions and goofiness as himself today in the body of a younger man. He still “attempts” to film family candidly as in this footage. Now I know it isn’t anything new lol.

    Anyway thought this might be interesting and fun for others to see. Enjoy!

    This could be a music video for indie music. Excellent capturing of the moment feels very nostalgic.

    This was great footage to watch. Your parents seem like a great couple. It’s still so hard for me to see the appeal of the mustache though.
