Hunts Peach Slices may not be as interesting as Schlitz beer, but in the previously related photo here - the next picnic table over, the question came up as to whether a six pack of Schlitz was enough for the family picnic. I believe this image answers that question and then some. As for that adorable tow-head on the bench - last seen at a family dinner table - he's my husband. In't he cute?? And his Momma (not the blond BTW) is smiling so sweetly at his Pop taking the picture. I just love this family. 35 mm Kodachrome. View full size.
