Carolyn M. Fletcher 7/10/2006 3:02:52 AM

Thanks Julie, Paige, Pam, Bonnie, Marcie and Colette! I wish I could have found more kids! There's a TV commercial locally that has a similar scene to this, so I tried to get the kids to cooperate..not easy. They all wanted to go different directions, chase kittens, etc, etc, etc..But I ended up with a few shots and this seems to be the favorite. #3006631
