Markey grandkids and Walker siblings April 16, 2014

Below, front from left:  Michelle, Joe, Ben.  Back row: Alex, Samantha, Amanda and Brian.
 This  picture was probably taken between Thanksgiving and Christmas but I don't have the original handy so don't know what year it was taken. Maybe 1993 or 1994.  Can't tell if Ben is 1 or 2 in this picture, and he's the youngest!
These two are my kids through the years.  Alex and Samantha... I think the formal picture was taken at our Des Moines church in 1991, when they would have been 4 and 5 years of age (about).

We're waking up to snow??? It's April 14th, 2014! This is IOWA!!!

 On Saturday it was 85 degrees here and WINDY! Yesterday (Sunday) it was COLD, with a wind chill of 32 degrees and a steady rain that lasted ALL DAY.
 This morning we woke up to 30 degrees, with wind gusts 30-40 mph, and so the 'feels like' temperature is 16 degrees.
 Unbelievable!
It's not even an April Fool's joke.

Another blast from the past! April 13, 2014

 This must be late 1960 or early 1961, since Shirley (in the middle) is 'leaning' instead of sitting up on her own.  She was born September 12.  That makes Bob close to 2 years old and I would be 3 in March.
I think the must be an Easter picture in our finery.  Looks like a gloomy day, either way.  I'm guessing it was 1964.
 I think this must be about Easter, 1963.
That's Uncle Charlie behind me, and my grandma behind Shirley.  I think this might have been taken in 1965.  All the outdoor pictures here were taken in my grandma's back yard.
