Family Portrait circa 1985

When my parent's moved I found this in the attic. It's a family portrait I did at school in 5th or 6th grade, which would place it between 1985-early 1987. I can date it to that time period because Duke, the beagle in the drawing, was purchased in August of 1985.

(or was it 1986? He was a puppy when my Grandma and I went to see Back to the Future, so . . .1985, right?)

Two things of note: my Mom's tightly permed hair, which I remember distinctly from that era, and my Grandma's striped shirt which, honest to God, I can picture in my mind like it was right in front of me now.

Too cute!
Don't you just love finding things from the past?

BTW, I think we must be close to the same age...
