Congratulations

“Taking this photo Easter Morning 1986 seemed like a good idea at the time. The CONGRATULATIONS sign is from our younger son’s Confirmation the week before. Apparently no time to take it down before Easter morning.”

Roll Bounce - Behind The Awkwardness

Roll Bounce

“This was taken early 1965. I was posing with my favorite truck while my sisters roller skated in the driveway. The oldest sister has a unconvincing ‘I didn’t do it’ look while my other sister goes down hard.”

Ashes To Ashes - Babies

Ashes To Ashes

“An inquisitive baby, I’d often explore places that normally would be ‘off-limits’.  The cold soft ash felt good in my little fingers though!  Luckily, my brothers ‘rescued’ me, and my parents thought to snap a photo of it.”
