Scan Those Old Photos!

This family photo of my great-grandmother with five of her grandsons may have been long lost had we opted to leave it in its photo album. In its digital form, we've been able to share it with family from coast to coast!

My brother loves to watch this footage of his younger self! The VHS tape which held this gem sat on a shelf in my parents' basement for years, now we enjoy it all the time!
