Just a little photographic nostalgia…
My sister Barb just posted this picture on Facebook. It’s from a 1994 trip to the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

My brother is holding my sister’s son on his lap.
And here they are again at my second daughter’s bridal shower last fall, along with the three younger sisters! (Too bad they won’t still wear matching jumpers, though we did get most of them into matching bridesmaids dresses in October! See here:
