Old Askins family pictures

This is where it all started for our family. Here are my grandparents (my mom's parents) on their wedding day, June 1955.


Here's a picture of my mom and my grandparents at some sort of parade that I marched in. I was a Brownie. :-)


Uncle Wendell, the cool one...with cousins Andy and Carla.


This is my Uncle Mark and my Aunt Pam (she's my mom's sister) and Cameron.


This is one of my favorite Aunt Cheryl pictures (she's on the left and my mom's other sister, who is married to Uncle Wendell)...this was taken in...I'm not sure...1970-something. :-)

Here's my mom and my Uncle Jeff at Pentwater State Park. Not sure of the year on this one either.


This is my great-grandma McKenzie, she was Anna's namesake. (She was my grandma Darlene's mom)


Here's the whole family (minus spouses, kids and grandkids!) First, my Uncle Jeff, my mom, Grams, Pops, my Aunt Pam and my Aunt Cheryl. Was taken at my Poppa's retirement party.


This is me and my grandma in the pool at my Aunt Cheryl's old apartment in Daytona. I was in the 5th grade...so that would have been 1984. Wayne was in his first year of college at this time! LOL!


This is one of my favorite pictures of my grandparents together. They are riding in my Uncle Wendell's old Rambler. Gotta love the Hawaiian shirt and Budweiser vison on Poppa.

This is my dad and my sister at the Oceana county fair. Samantha looks to be about 3 or 4, so that makes Theresa either 4 or 5.


This is my Uncle Jeff. He pasted away 12 years ago. This is my absolute favorite picture of him. Yeah, I know...this is going to make my Aunt Cheryl cry, but...there isn't a day that I don't wish that he were here. He used to give me a hard time and call me names when I was a kid. I can't hear an REO Speedwagon, Bruce Springsteen or Cheap Trick song without thinking about riding in his super cool green Regal he had. I love and miss you, Uncle Peff (that's not a typo either).


Anna when she was about 8-9 months old. A rare moment when she would keep her hearing aids in at that age. LOL!

Uncle Wendell took this picture of Cameron when he was about a year old. I just love it!


Here's Grammy Darlene with her babies. I used to be the one she cuddled on her lap! Cam is about 3-4 and Anna is probably just over a year old.

Such a sweet walk down memory lane with you. I have no photos from before I got married of any family. I think my stepmom "lost" everything.
