Thank goodness Grandma Hardie didn't take another wrong turn, or he may have been born in her car!
On his first birthday in Dubuque, with a big bump and bruise on his forehead...
...he sits on my cousin Shelly's lap to blow out his candle.
I believe this is Mike's 10th birthday. Not only did he have tear drop shaped ear lobes, he also had a pointy little chin!
Oh, I remember that Central Mustangs T-shirt. I even remember picking out that wild mascot for our elementary school.
Our birthdays are only 6 days apart, so I'm not sure whose cake this was since we're both blowing out the candles. Maybe we were making it easy on Mom that year and shared a cake?
Mom, did we both always ask for chocolate with chocolate? I know I did!
