Hell Week - Get the House Ready

All

With the baby due to arrive in May, February and March would be our last chance to get the house ready. We made a full project, getting new carpet and completely redecorating the new baby nursery.

Jesse Joins the Family

All

On May 21st, Lyn went into final labor and produced baby Jesse. This made 1987 a year to remember for us.

Dave's Sister visits from Texas

All

After Jesse was born in May, everybody wanted to see him. Dave's sister and her family came from Texas to see the new baby and to visit nearby Greenfield Village.

Here is a family picture taken during their visit.

Dave's Business Trips

Dave

With the new baby home and settled, it was time to get back to work. Dave had just begun taking his first "real" business trips. He visited the D&L plant in Red Oak, Iowa to deliver some software consulting as they went live on his package.

It was the first time he went early to sight-see, and the first time he attended a minor league baseball game. It was also the first time he took the camera and spent some time collecting picture souvenirs of his trip.

Birthday Surprise for Lyn's Mom

Birthday decorations for Lyn's Mom - July 1987

Lyn's mom celebrated here 50th birthday so her girls got together and decorated the house with hundreds of helium balloons. All the rooms were decorated and many had the entire ceiling full of the colorful orbs and dangling ribbons.

LA Business Trip: Earthquake and Disneyland

Dave

After his small software company was acquired by Cullinet Software, Dave was asked to make a small overview presentation at the annual Cullinet user conference at the Anaheim Convention Center. This was Dave's first trip to California and he was accompanied by Dave and Lynn, sales consultants and regular travelers. The "other Dave"  was an absolute Disneyland-maniac. His mom had lived in Anaheim for years and his sister actually worked at the park. Of course, they found time one afternoon to visit the "Happiest Place on Earth" using the employee discount for tickets and an armful of souvenirs.

Dave had a free morning and borrowed the groups car and the other Dave's camera to shoot some pictures of exotic Los Angeles to bring home. In the middle of his drive down to to Newport Beach, the road began to shake and the overhead stoplights began to sway in slow rhythm. It was an earthquake! The "Pasadena earthquake" caused some damage 50 miles to the north but the initial quake and the aftershocks that continued for hours were the talk of every radio station and everybody at the conference. Sadly, Dave had misloaded the film in the borrowed camera, and only these few shot were actually taken. Over the years, Dave has visited LA hundreds of times, but his first visit was certainly the most memorable.

Henry Ford Musuem

All

We wanted to try out our baby backpack and we wanted to get some exercise. Lyn's parents had some discount tickets to the nearby Henry Ford Museum that were due to expire. We hadn't been to visit since we were in elementary school, so we made the excuse and had  a satisfactory December Saturday in Dearborn.
