A Sparkly Bundle of Happiness

My good friends George & Linda Allen of Spokane, WA belong to a Walleye Club that holds an event called C.A.S.T. where they take disadvantaged kids fishing for a day.
This year it seems they were blessed to have with them this little bundle of perky sunshine in pink. Her name is Kenadie Hansberry, age 2, of Spokane.
It seems that at that early age she's already developed her own sense of style. She also carries it off with an air of confidence that belies her young years. Apparently even the sunglasses appeared magically as they got underway, to complete the look.
Where's the red carpet?
A girl's gotta look good in the photos.
Well, let's go.
Maybe a coy smile for the paparazzi before we cast off.
Discussing group photo arrangement.
The supporting cast.
Three hours of perseverance pays off!
Can we take her home?
One last shot for my fan club.
To see and be around her you'd never know she has a serious allergy problem that affects her esophagus and requires her to be fed from a small bag attached to her chest and connected to a 'g-tube' which permits the nourishment to bypass her esophagus. She can eat only sugar by mouth & carries a bag of marshmallows to nibble on.
Needless to say, her indomitable spirit and extreme cuteness won the day and it seems there were many who wanted to take her home.
The pretty lady with her is her mom.
Until next we meet, if you're a bit down, think of Kenadie and follow her lead.
