Day 179

I spent the afternoon working on my family history paper and scanning family photos. These were some of my favorites -- my great-grandmother, Lola, on a tricycle in Iowa and my great-grandfather, Alvin. His wife, Edith with her siblings at American Distillery in Pekin, Illinois (looking very Grapes of Wrath). And my grandparents, Bruce and Sharon (I'd never seen this photo before!). I love old photographs!


  1. Those are adorable. I especially like the one of your grandparents. You should frame that. I hope Lola didn't fall off that tricycle! Edith and her siblings look a little too well-dressed to be in the Grapes of Wrath.

  2. Thanks! I've had a lot of fun working on this project, and I'm so glad I found these photos! They are going to be a great addition to my paper. And my apartment -- I have to frame them!
