As I kid, I used to photograph Angie; now that I’m all grown up, I still photograph Angie, but not until after I first get past her adorable daughters!
Here’s the kind of girls Kamaryn and Kaley are: we ran into them one day at the pool, they were riding their brand spankin’ new bikes home from swim lessons. When they heard that we didn’t have bikes to ride here, they offered for us to borrow theirs. Mrs. Angie gave her shiny new bicycle to my son and asked Kamaryn to let my daughter have hers — Kamaryn jumped off and handed over her brand new pink toy with a smile. Very impressive showing of generosity from a 9-year-old! We spent the next day of our vacation sailing through the air on bicycles, sans traffic, exploring all of my childhood bike routes.
Kaley is 5 and greets me each day with a hugs and tells me that she loves me. Small town friends are very special, especially when the friendship spills over into the next generation. 🙂
