some now-and-thens of Tulip Festival

Then...(riding the ferris wheel with my cousin Julie, and Ang and Gina are below us)

and now...(riding a much more expensive ride, and where was the ferris wheel????)


Then...(thinking I was cool stuff with my cousin Kris)


and now...(Lillian thinking she is cool stuff with my cousin Kirs and her family, in the "princess carriage")

Then....(probably just about to get last place in a race during a high school track meet)


and now... (after getting 286th place (or something) after the 5K run)



Then...(2007)

and now.... (just as much love, not as much choke)

Then...(1987-Joel and me in our costumes my mom made)
and now...(Lillian in the same dress, different apron my mom made later)


Then...(my family dressed up for the Maurice Chruch centennial)


and now...(my family dressed up on the float for Tulip Festival)


man...time flies.
