Lonsberry Family Pictures -- April 12

This week's installment of Lonsberry family adventures.

  •  
    Now this is a good-looking man. Or not. The old man trying to look civilized.
  •  
    Little Robbie, who starts kindergarten next fall, with a non-compensated commercial endorsement. Maple syrup AND tattoos? This place rocks.
  •  
    I kid you not, I sent this picture to my wife when she was at a school board meeting. It's little Sam, commenting on dad's abilities as a babysitter.
  •  
    Little Robbie and blue-eyed Ellie show off their Easter booty while getting photobombed by Scott.
  •  
    My dear son-in-law, Austin, is the best SAW gunner the company commander and the first sergeant ever saw, so they gave him a token of their affection and admiration -- an Army Achievement Medal.
  •  
    Eldest son Lee out in Utah, dressed for success on the way to a Second Amendment rally at the state Capitol.
  •  
    Momma's little cutey -- Sam. This bruiser is in the 97th percentile for length and 85th for weight. That's what happens when you're born at 9 pounds 11 ounces.
  •  
    Two of my favorite people. Lou Gramm and Scott Pitoniak. Lou's autobiography is wonderful and I happily recommend it.
  •  
    Blue-eyed Ellie and I took Jimmy for a walk one Saturday morning.
  •  
    The other night young Scott took a key and started doing some preventative maintenance on the bunk bed ladder. He is already far handier than his father.
  •  
    Things not going well with Scott and Robbie during a visit to Minnehan's.
  •  
    Robbie makes peace.
  •  
    Boys are happy.
  •  
    The clean up gets done.
  •  
    We went out for a family portrait at Ross Photography in Schoen Place.
  •  
    Scott tired of posing and fell in love with a prop.
  •  
    Two months ago, Monroe County sheriff's Deputy Jason Elliotto pulled this little girl's near-lifeless body out of a burning home. He had already helped pull her mother out, but felt something urging him to go back in. He found her under a pile of clothes. This smile is his reward.
  •  
    Lee has gone the last few springs to a Hindu Festival of Colors, which features throwing a bunch of colored corn meal into the air.
  •  
    We went on a hike the other day, with these two in the lead. Blue-eyed Ellie ran far ahead on the trail, like a deer.
  •  
    Dear Jimmy loves being in the woods.
  •  
    Mom and Sam are outdoorspeople.
  •  
    Scott cops a squat whenever the opportunity presents itself.
  •  
    Young Robbie loves the trail. He is a bundle of energy and joy.
  •  
    Scott is a bit fastidious. he is upset here because he has dirt on his hand.
  •  
    Jack, the king of the second grade, is a big fan of camouflage.
  •  
    Here's the hiking team in the woods.
  •  
    Beautiful Hannah, a student teacher at Geneseo Central, and little brother Sam.
  •  
    This is retired National Guard Sgt. Giancarlo Lusardi. We ran into one another at the Culver Road Armory. We had met at the armory some 20 years earlier when I was a newspaper reporter and he was moblizing for the first Gulf War.
