1983 and Now

Yesterday was the last day of Jennifer's visit to Wyoming, all the way from Australia. One of the last times we were together as little girls Jennifer's father took this photo in 1983, shortly before her family made the permanent move to Australia...

We decided that is was only right and proper to recreate the photo once again. So yesterday morning, just as the sun was rising we headed to a public park and did this...

Eric took the photo. I tried to recreate the one eye open one eye squinty look from the original, but Eric kept saying, "Maria not so crazy." Jennifer just tried not to laugh at my directions, but we managed to get something accomplished.

Thanks Jennifer for a wonderful visit! How is it possible that we didn't miss a beat after nearly three decades? Enjoy Montana, I wish I was there!
