Just got these back from old negatives.
Some of these pictures I have never seen.
Such as this one, taken about 1956.
Wish I could see the food better behind us.My mother (with her eyes half closed), me, and my Grandma Slinkard.
Can't figure out why we are so dressed up for a picnic at the park.
Who do I look like? I see a little of my son Logan in me, and also my granddaughter Cami.
How about this classic taken at Familiy Camp in the summer of 1965The twins look about 6 weeks old, if that.
btw, the little very blonde girl up front was not one of ours...that's Peggy's friend Gina Morrison. Also, the red head in the back must have been Ray Wardell.
How did we keep those babies from freezing at night? We lived in a tent for a week!
Below is stylin' Robin in 1966 wearing her very homemade looking dress. Where did Mom find time to make clothes with 7 children and pregnant with #8.
Another 1965 picture.
I remember the one below very well.
We all spent a week (or was it a few days?) in Palm Springs at a hotel owned by my grandma's sister. This was the first and only time I remember that we got to play with our 2nd cousins.
Robin and Peggy are in the very center of the front row. John and Mom behind them. Richard to the right of Mom and I'm to the right of Richard.
Where were the twins? Were they not born yet?
It's 1959 below. Richard and John, and me holding Robin.
My mom would refer later to those days as "gentler times"
This is a more familiar picture to me.
Johnny, my mom holding Robin, Richard, and me.
Why does John have girls shoes on?
I have more to show in a day or so...
