Some old sketches

I recently came upon a couple old sketches I thought were interesting.
They were in a sketch book that belonged to my wife's sister.
I have a vague recollection of visiting my wife's family many years ago and, having nothing much to do, someone produced a sketch pad and some pencils.
I never gave it another thought till now. She was apparently going through some of her stuff and came across them.
Not having been very prolific over the years, I figured they were good enough to add to my collection. I have to take what I can get.
The one was dated 1988. The other one didn't have a date on it but I figured it had to be done close to the same time so I went ahead and wrote the date in now.

This is a sketch of my wife's Grandpa George. The same Grandpa that owned the saw featured in a previous blog post

A quick sketch of one of my kids I would guess at about the age of two:

Plenty of strawberry blossoms out on our walk today...
The mosquitoes were feeling strong too.
