Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to all!!!  I love this photo from our family archives...that's my Grandma in a dress AND hat with her 3 kids on the beach!!!  I'm guessing this photo is from the mid to late 1920s as the first boy on the left is my Dad & he was born in 1920.  I'm not even sure what beach it is...but it's definitely along Lake Erie as they never lived anywhere except in the Cleveland, OH area.

At least the kids got to go into the water to play.  That's my Uncle Ray, then my Aunt Arline, & my Dad.  Summer fun for all!!! 
 
I hope your 4th is happy & fun & safe...we're enjoying a laid back just the 2 of us day with some hot dogs on the grill later & hopefully we'll see some fireworks from our backyard.  No fighting the crowds anymore...and we like it that way.

  1. Thank goodness! I thought this was going to be a photo of you and your siblings. When I saw the cloche hat on the lady, I wondered if you were much older than you look. LOL Great photos!
