It was just over 26 years ago when Grayson's dad passed away after battling pancreatic cancer. There are quite a few family photos gathered at the grave over the years. It's often in April that the Blackham Bunch goes out, as April 23 is the day Gordon left this earth. Sometimes we get together around Memorial Day in May. As we gathered at the grave this past Monday, Maga wondered how many pictures we had from the past years. I've posted several here on the blog ... but thought I'd do my best to compile them in a collection.
2018 is posted at the top. Missing some family members as is generally the case. Landon and Keaton were working. Olivia too. Courtney and Addie were in New York. It was a nice day, but still quite cool. We hit Crown Burger afterward, which is also a bit of a tradition.
Here's the rest of the photos I could find. Some years, I know we went and there are the family photos at the duck pond from MY phone, but the picture at the cemetery would have been taken with Grayson's or Maga's phone/camera, and I wasn't able to locate them. Going back further, pictures were taken with film cameras and then scanned to digital. The olden days!
Only Gray and Keaton represented our immediate family this year. Landon and Cooper were off to a Jazz playoff game. Callahan was working and Colton was under the weather, so I stayed home with him.
We didn't stay very long this year ... it was cold and rainy!

Not sure where the 2014 photo is.
