Growing up in a small town, everyone knows everyone.  It is a comforting feeling - familiar faces, familiar smiles.  

This is the Thielk family.  Dana (the mama), was a year older than me in high school.  Her parents were in high school with my parents.  And here she is - a busy mom with children that are growing fast.  Her little one, and my little one are close in age too.  Years and years of of history, in one little town.  

Here is the Thielk family, and their smiles.  It was a picture perfect day!
