beware the ides of March!

My grandfather's birthday was today - the ides of March.  It is a day that I always think about not just my grandfather, but all of my other grandparents and other ancestors.  I thought I would share some really interesting pictures my mom has sent over the last few days.

Sarah and Jim Ryan in Pittsburgh after they were married
(He worked for Westinghouse I think)

Blogged about his future wife here

Mabel Patterson Eisenhauer
(my mom's father's mother)
As my mom pointed out - we might share a similar hairline... 
Pretty cool old photos!  Really fun to see myself and my siblings in their expressions and traits.
