Photograph caption dated March 2, 1962 reads, "Triple threat - Being the parents of triplets is no easy job - especially when a birthday rolls around. But the three girls, from left, Kathy Lyn, Karen Lee and Kim Louise, daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Agner of Burbank, seem to be enjoying the occasion even if it is a bit early. The triplets will celebrate their third birthday Saturday, which, by the way, is March 3. The tots remain calm as they receive their gifts in the first picture, but tranquility turns to chaos as they struggle to open their presents in the center picture. Then joy takes over as the girls display the contents of those difficult packages. Looks like toys for the triplets."; See images #00114457 through #00114459 for all photos in this series.
