Photo of the Day – January 28, 2015

The family consensus is that we have no idea where this photo was taken. I do think it was taken sometime around 1991 as my sister Colleen was born in 1988 and appears to be about 3 years old. Wearing her watermelon shirt, she’s pretty content hanging out with my dad.

Photo of the Day – January 25, 2015

If I had to guess, I would place this photo in the summer of 1991. In the photo are grandmother Barb Viti and five of her grandchildren, (l to r) Mark Witt in her arms (I presume based on the age and others in the photo), Christian Witt, Melanie Witt, Michelle Dockry and Danny Witt. This may have been taken at the home of my uncle Charlie Witt near Pope Air Force Base in North Carolina. Can someone confirm that for me?

Photo of the Day – January 21, 2015

This is all of my first cousins except two, who were not yet born when this photo was taken. In the back are Kelly and JP Heydle, Laura Lowry, me, my sister Caroline, Michael Lowry, and Katie Lowry. On the slide are James Lowry, Sara Lowry, Jeannie and Jen Kroynovich, my sister Colleen and Kaitlyn Lowry. It took me typing this caption to realize that we are all arranged in order of age. The youngest person in this picture, Kaitlyn, is 23 years old, making this photo about 20 years old.
