  1. It's supercool that you still have those! It's a pain enough to keep the birth certificate one requested about 3 months ago, so I can only imagine the pain you guys went through to secure these. Hope you've got a good drive for all those pics, so you can protect them from the proverbial dust, and wear & tear.
