My family history

I have been doing family history research lately and have run across quite a few old pictures....some I have seen and some I have never seen. I love researching family history, finding new people and wondering how they lived; seeing how large some of the families were. It's really pretty cool, I think, or maybe I am just getting old. I don't know and don't really care, I just know I really like it. So as a part of my journal here, I am going to post some of these old pictures I have found. I'm also going to tag these pictures for future generations supposing they read this.
This first one is of my grandmother, my dad, my great grandmother and me (up in the corner) at White Sands, NM.
 This is Ma and Dad Sims, Granny Yates' parents.
 This is Pa and Big Ma Yates, Grandad Oscar's parents.
 Ma Sims
 The girl in the back on the right side is my grandmother. She really didn't change much in looks.

Noah had a Karate tournament or rather Kuk Sool Won (don't ask me the difference) a couple of weekends ago. He has only been taking lessons for about 2 months and is really loving it. BUT the tournament is a lot of waiting around. Noah competed in three different catagories......I don't know the names of any of them but the sparing. He came in third place in that one. Yeah Noah. He did really well in all of the events as well.

He got a medal and got to stand on the podium just like in the Olympics.

 They are all getting so big. What has happened to my baby grandsons.

 All done!
