Julia Looking In

Poor Julia. Perhaps her greatest efforts in life, aside from sending me to an early grave, are devoted to keeping up with her older sisters. She would love to participate in the same rides they can go on. But, alas, she is disadvantaged by the height requirements.

Here she stands outside the fence of one such ride, clutching the iron bars and railing against the injustice of it all. Can't you see her sorrow and despair? Trust me - it's there. But the day just got harder and harder for her. Kate and Genna went on a lot of rides (thanks to the extra tickets we got through my parent's entertainment guide).

Here's another fence separating her from the fun her sisters were having. Come to think of it, our photographing her trials probably didn't help at all. Thinking back, Annie and I may have even laughed.

Again, poor Julia.

what a heartbreaking story of exclusion and descrimination. I have faith that Julia will exact her revenge on those who have wronged and slighted her, though.

She has already begun, have no fear.
