Emelie's Senate Paging Day

A month or so ago, Jamers asked if Emelie would accompany her best buddy, Doodle, as a Page-for-the-Day for Indiana State Senator Patricia Miller (Doodle's Grandma). How could I say no to that?

The girls had a wonderful time! Senator Miller arranged photos with Lieutenant Governor Beck Skillman, and Governor Mitch Daniels. They were also introduced on the floor of the Senate. What incredible memories were made that day! Thanks for thinking of her, Jamers and Doodle!
