Your Happiest Birthday Yet

For my daughter Laura, on her birthday. Your happiest birthday yet.

Born in Eschenbach, Germany

Here we are on Argonne Avenue in Grafenwoehr and in my Pittsburgh driveway almost 32 years later.

  1. Happy birthday, Laura! Nice to have Charles to join the celebration now! Special!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAURA Charlie is the most precious gift of all, nothing like the joy a baby brings. Can’t wait to get to Columbus to meet him.

  3. Happy Birthday to Laura and you too Ruth E. I always think when its your child’s birthday its your birthday. After all you gave birth (to a beautiful young lady I might add).

  4. I love seeing similar settings with decades between them. Happy Birthday Laura!! You make a darling mama. πŸ™‚

  5. It is amazing when they grow up and have kids of their own! Their experience as new parents is both the same as and different from our experience as parents. And it’s lovely to see those photographs of ourselves from 30-some years ago. We look both the same and different, then to now. And we are so situated in a certain time period: I had those glasses, and that haircut too!
