Then and now . . .

There are no girls on my side of the family. My brother and his wife had three boys, and Lee and I had two. We frequently photographed all five of them together . . .

My David was the youngest of the bunch. Here they are in 1992 . . .

This one was taken at Christmastime in 1997 . . .

Skip ahead a few years (it couldn't have been more than 2 or 3 . . O.K. maybe 5 but that's tops!

(Sigh!) Actually, this last one was taken at my son John's high school graduation party. There are a few more recent photos, but this is one of my favorites. Where did the time go?

They are a very handsome bunch of boys and how nice that they could grow up being not only cousins but friends.

What a nice series of photos, and they sure all look close together in age! It must have been a lot of energy, at times, to have them all under one roof at once. I think they look the most relaxed in the most recent photo.

Wow, I can't imagine keeping up with 5 boys! Good for you, Maria! It looks like you did a great job and they certainly are a handsome bunch!
