Like Father, Like Son

Note: This is Patricia posting here. Every once in a while you'll see a post from "Dr. Dave Vollmer" and that's me writing through Dave's Google account, because I have run out of photo space on the Major Mom Google account and Dave's "Weathersix" account is virtually empty.

Most of the time, Jacob looks like me. It's obvious in his dark hair, dark eyes, and all-around know-it-all-ness.

That's my boy.

Today Paul sent me this blog post, another one of those funny JC Penney's catalog montages, a follow up to this one that circulated the e-mail world about a year ago. The new one even has a hilarious picture of Ricky...I mean, Rick Schroeder.

This got me thinking about all of the 70s photos Dave and I have of ourselves. So I broke out our photo albums and started looking.

Dave's album has a lot more 70s fashion than mine. Probably because most of my pictures are of birthdays and Christmases and I'm wearing really pretty dresses that don't look glaringly 70s. What do you call them? "Timeless?"

Meanwhile, Dave's Dad and older brother definitely looked like they could have shopped in that Penney's catalog! Dave was mostly in jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters. He was definitely an 80s fashion icon, though :-)

But I did come across a picture of Dave that jumped out at looked like a picture of Jake I had taken last month that he is thoroughly embarassed about. He said his smile looks funny. It isn't his normal smile, but I think it's a cute picture anyway.

So what do you think? Dave's was around his 5th birthday, Jake's is around his 6th birthday. Proof that Jake and Dave are indeed related?
