Blonde Niece and Drama Niece live about 90 miles apart, but through text messages, phone calls, and instant messenger, they manage to communicate on what seems like an hourly basis. Up at camp, they seem to be together all the time: going off in a canoe, taking long swims in the icy cold river water, talking together at the firepit, braiding each other's hair, playing card games, or hanging out in the hammock in the shade of the oak trees. At my house, they will sit together on the couch, talking and giggling about all kinds of things. This weekend, Drama Niece will be coming to town for a special occasion; her father will be getting married on Saturday. Drama Niece will be sitting at the head table, of course, and she'll be giving a toast, since she has been designated the "best man." Blonde Niece will be sitting right next to her the whole time.
Putting on their life jackets before heading off into deeper waters.
