A Day With Lizzie

When I was a little girl I had a best cousy, Rachel. We adored each other. (STILL DO!) We fought like sisters and cried when we had to leave. We even had our OWN ISLAND! It was called Rachangel island. I think it was pretty much a rock in the middle of the creek but it was OURS. We were exactly 9 months apart in age.(I'm 9 months older) So when I had Kaitlyn my best cousy Rachel came to see her in the hospital. I joked with her and said that she better be prego with a little girl or she would ruin the tradition. She laughed and said she would like to be soon. Little did she know that she WAS prego on that visit. Nine months later Lizzie joined us. So now Kaitlyn and Lizzie are exactly the age span that we were. For Lizzie's 4th birthday we met them for the day at Sea World. Watching the two of them feels so strange and heart warming. It makes me feel as if I am watching a memory live. I sat there listening to them discuss that they were the SAME age and giggled. I remember how excited Rachel and I would be every year when we got to be the "same age" for 3 months. :0) It's just so fun seeing them together.

First time to see SHAMU!

You can't beat that PRECIOUS face!
I know it's out of focus! ARGHHH! I just LOVE that expression though.
We LOVE Shamu but sometimes the excitement is too much. ;0)
























I am so glad I have you Rachel!!! You have been such a special part of my life. So many of my favorite memories as a child are with you. We love you Lizzie. Happy Birthday baby girl. You are precious. Hugs, Angel
