Remininsing our past Easter 1974

It is Easter 1974 and John Michael is 3 and Mark Alan is 6 months. We would dress up and go to St Judes Church, Front Street, Lincoln, RI on Easter Sunday. John would get me a beautiful orchid corsage to wear on Easter outfit. The boys were always so good in church. I would give John Michael one of his hot wheel miniature trucks and he would play with it during the mass, driving it along the pew. I cannot believe how faded these photos are, since they were in a photo album.
The cake I made for Mark Alan's First Birthday was a head of a dog after our shepherd, Duke age 2.

I love these old photos of you! Mark and John basically look the same, just older! I am enjoying this a lot! Thanks!

I love doing this for the family to see and remember the past as well as what is happening today. Pictures are usually kept in albums and you never seem to get around to looking at them. Having this new technology of blogging on line sure makes it easier and most enjoyable to read and view the photos. I am so glad you inspired me to do a blog as you were doing this past December. Time is a factor for me since so many hours are spent working the real estate business, the Avon business,
the Ebay business, and trying to maintain meals and a clean home.
Did I forget to mention that sleep is important, too! There are only 24 hours, right?
