Random Monday Memories #23 . . .

I ran across this picture that my son scanned for me back in August.
I think this was taken in May 1985.
(Thanks, Sis Sue, for helping me get the date right.)
Wish I had taken time back then to write on the back of all pictures.

These adorable children are my nephew, Grant, niece, April, my son, Bobby and Ashley (she calls me Aunt Carol & I love it), my brother-in-law's niece.  They are sitting on the bench in front of my parents' shoe store in my hometown. 
We had all gathered downtown to watch the annual reunion parade.
So long ago & brings back so many memories.

Now we're making new memories with new little ones in our family.
Grant's little 8 month old  Iris, April's 4 year old Elsie and Bobby's 2 children (my grandkids), 2 year old Ethan & 10 month old Emma.  
April & her husband, Jason are expecting another little girl in May.
They have been trying to decide on a name for the new baby & I suggested several names which included my #1 pick, Madison.
Guess what?
They like it & have decided on the name Madison Elaine.
I'm so excited!  

Thanks for letting me share my Mommy, Auntie brag book picture with you!

Cute picture. It has got to be earlier that 1987. Kara was born in 87. Bobby and Grant was 6 when Kara was born and April was 9. By the looks of the kids I would guess the picture to be 1984 or 85.

Thanks, Susan, for helping me get the dates right! : )

How time flies. Scanning old photos is a must, even if you don't see a date on them. We will have soooo many more photos of our grandchildren not that it's gone digital.
