A new Schwinn bicycle:

Walter (left) and William (holding the bicycle), wearing pants made by Erline? They wore bow ties in those days.

This was probably taken on Easter 1954:

Weldon with Easter Bunny, William and Walter holding new tool boxes. (Did Walt make them? … or did the boys make them with Dad’s help …?)

Wilford had entered the family by the time this was taken, likely during the snowy winter of 1954-55.
