The only person
you should try to be better than
is the person you were
Hello Family and Friends,
Greetings to all of you from San Diego, California on this pleasant day in October.
Tomorrow, October 26, is the 20th birthday of Mandi Aquiningoc, the sister of Lyndsey, and the daughter of Kerri Aquiningoc.
Mandi is the 2nd GG grandchild of both Leroy and Nola Shannon Gower, and Will and Bura Davis Shepard. She is the granddaughter of Gary Shepard and Jackie Perry, and the Ggranddaughter of Maida Gower Shepard.
Mandi was born in San Diego in 1992 but lives today in Granbury, Texas. The first picture is of Mandi and was taken just a couple of months ago in July. Best wishes to Mandi for a wonderful birthday!
Fall is a great time of the year for families to be active and busy. The stifling heat of summer is past and the cold of winter is not yet upon us. I came across a couple that I would like to share with you. They show family members having a good time this fall.
One of the fun fall family photos I am including today was taken last week and shows our son Nathan Shepard with two of his and Chenda's children having a great time on a slide at Washington Park in Alameda, California where they live. On the left is Logan and scrunched in the middle is Preslea. Thanks to Chenda for taking this picture and sending it to me.
The final fun fall family photo features friends Nicole Haw Shepard and her sister-in-law Rachel Shepard. Nicole lives with husband Patrick in Bothell, Washington, while Rachel lives with her folks in Kirkland, Washington.
This photo was taken while the whole family was on an outing to a pumpkin farm in Snohomish, Washington.
