Ruby Tuesday-Twins In Red




My son lives in Twinsburg where Twins Fest is held the first weekend of August every year. I've attended a couple of times and it is amazing to see so many multiples gathered in one location--some so identical you couldn't tell them apart even if you were their parents and some so different, you wouldn't even guess that they were related. I became the grandmother of twins in 2005 but was unable to attend Twins Fest the summer after they were born. Then they moved to San Diego and probably won't return for the festival for many years. My daughter did take the boys to Twins Fest that summer, though, and had their picture taken with the "Most Alike" set of twins. So thanks to her for this picture, here are the "Most Alike" and probably the "Most UnAlike".

I know you are all busy checking out everyone's Ruby Tuesday but take the time to bookmark me and drop back to check out my blog. I am a retired Special Ed teacher who now spends most of her time on Sanibel Island, Florida volunteering for a Wildlife hospital rescuing and rehabbing wildlife. I even dumpster dive for injured Raccoons!! I am also the proud grandma of 5 wonderful grandkids and brag about them often!! I also have a blog called Branches and Roots where I talk about genealogy and my ancestors. OK, enough about me. So if you really want to see red go to Work of the Poet.

Rubbin' my eyes! I think I'm seein' double! This is actually very interesting to me because I am friends with a former Twins Days QUEEN! They attend the Twins Days festival EVERY year! That is a cute shot of two very HAPPY daddies with two cute babies!

I think you can see the twin-ness in those little ones. It's not as clear as in the adults, but it's there in the eyes and the mouth. Twin fest sounds like fun. I knew two identical twin brothers in college and endeared myself to one of them one day when I asked him "are you yourself or are you your brother?"
