The baby is my mom at six months old. The young man is my grandfather–probably in his twenties. The older woman is his mother, my great-grandmother. The oldest man in the middle is her father–my great-great Grandfather.
I love this picture because I feel like you can just see all their personalities—or at least their roles in the family. Great-Great-Grandpa looks like he has no idea what’s going on. He’s just the old doddering grandpa of the family. Great-Grandma looks like she knows she’s the matriarch and she is the one in charge. Grandpa is giving off those, “I’m an adult but why do I still feel like a kid around my parents?” vibes. While Mama is just the happy little baby.
I love a picture where there seems to be tons going on behind the scenes!
