I titled this post '4 Generations' since I put my parents photos in the picture, too.
Except for the youngest generation, we're in Birth Order. Just wouldn't have worked to put the 2nd youngest holding the baby!! These photos were taken after Mother's funeral luncheon last month.
We started the 'grandkids' in birth order when the youngest (who belongs to me) was a maybe 5 or 6 years old. Every time they're together now (these days it seems to be mostly at weddings!) they line up this way. I have to chuckle when I see the shortest next to the tallest. This generation ranges in age from 42 down to 28. (I'm sure they're pleased that I mentioned this!!) I take credit for the 6th, 8th and last.
The 'great grandkids' range in age from 13 down to 4 months. In this photo, the oldest is holding the youngest, her cousin, the 2nd youngest is being held by his brother, 3rd youngest by her cousin.
Even though, because of geography, we don't get together very much, we always have such a great time when we do. We did pretty good this time...the only 2 that couldn't make it was a brother-in-law (Phoenix) and a niece's (the short one:-) husband (northern Illinois).
Next time we'll be together (as many as can make it) will be in June at my daughter's wedding...a much happier event!
