WATER BABY HAS A BIRTHDAY

Happy Birthday to our granddaughter, Caitlin, who is turning 19 this weekend.  From the very beginning, she was a 'water baby'!

It's been no surprise that for the last three summers she has worked in the office of Raft Masters of Canon City.  One of the perks of the job is rafting the Arkansas River of Colorado.  Since she weighs a little bit of nothing, she has to sit in the rear of the raft -- that's her in the back top with her brother, Wyatt, in front of her.
I think this was where they got dumped into the river.
On another trip, that is her in the back, right side -- bit of nothing, skinny arms and all -- playing with the big boys.
She would love to train as a raft guide, but she lacks the weight and strength needed.  So, for now, she plans to keep working in the office plus study business and marketing in college.  Watch out big, burly boys; someday she may own the place!
She has certainly graduated to a BIG pool of water.  This Grammy tries not to think about the dangers of that.

Cait, you are a very capable gal -- don't forget you can overcome any rough waters encountered in life.

What a sweet tribute to your cute granddaughter, Sally! She is a tiny little thing, but something tells me that she doesn't let anyone push her around. Wishing her all the best that life has to offer!
hugs,

Hi Sally! Happy Birthday to your beautiful Cait! What sweet snaps of her growing up. I do believe she's a little dare devil. That rafting would scare me to death! I wish her the very best. Hope you're doing well, my friend, and thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
