Tag!

Hey everybody!  This is Jake and Maggie. Our friend Princess tagged us to post a photo not posted before and tell the story behind it.  Since we are only 4 months old and don’t have that many photos to choose from, we asked our Dad to do it for us.  So here is the one he picked:

Lauren, Savannah, and Lucky

Savannah, Lauren, and Lucky

This was taken in the summer of 2001 when the girls were 14 and 11.  We were having a good family day at the lake with Lucky.  For me this nostalgic image holds the magic of a simpler, more innocent time.  A few weeks after this everything began to change.  There was 9/11 of course, and in the spring of 2002 my work took me to Mexico for a couple of years while the family stayed home.

Because of some issues with a troublesome neighbor, for her own protection Lucky went to live with a some friends on a farm in West Virginia.  There she had a long and happy life with a family who loved her.

I kept this picture on my desk the whole time I was in Mexico, and I still have it on my desk to this day. Of all the pictures I have taken of my girls over the years, this one is my favorite.
