This brought back so MANY funny memories! Kids these days are totally missing out. No neon, no spoke clickers for their bikes, no aqua net haze in the locker room (that one wasn't on there), only one pair of socks... Which reminds me in 1990 it was all about KEDS. Red Keds, with red and white stacked socks to match and the next day white Keds with blue and white socks...Out of control. Great post. I do need to email you a few pictures from the wedding. There were several of your boys and your fam that were so CUTE! I'm stealing this post idea by the way...
