    The Greatest Generation

     
    Today would've been my Grandpa Jerry's 91st birthday. I'm so happy to post a few pictures of him and my Grandma Coralie in honor of Grandparent's Day! Here's a few pictures of them from the 1940's...

    Photo 1: Grandma and Grandpa were really in love...they met during World War II but got married just after....he was stationed at Pearl Harbor (after the attack)

    Photo 2: Grandpa catchin' some rays by the river, in California

    Photo 3: Grandma (far left) and her friends keeping themselves entertained at the beach...no one goes to a Southern California beach dressed like that anymore!

    Photo 4: In going through old photos, I found a picture of my grandma that looked really familiar...then I realized it looked just like a photo that had recently been taken of me for my 30th birthday! Sort of a family resemblance, right? I guess beauty is timeless ;)
