Lisa and Rosie and I met Cassie Yates during the summer of 1996 when we were on staff at Camp- the same summer Josh and I became "an item."
She now has a son, Kylan, but is much the and honest and full of potential.
We got her to come and visit with us for a few hours, and it was nice- Kylan was not as into Bowden as Bowden was into Kylan, but he did like our toys.

Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.

Summer in Florida
