(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 132: Emily and Betty in the Woods

I'm posting family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless Wednesday posts like others do - I simply am incapable of having a wordless post.

Here is a photograph from the Carringer family collection handed down by my mother in the 1988 to 2002 time period:

This picture shows Emily (Auble) Carringer holding her daughter, Betty Virginia Carringer in a rustic setting, perhaps someone's house in Alpine or Descanso where the family occasionally visited friends.  Betty looks like she is about one year old, so this photograph was taken in about 1920, probably by Lyle Carringer.  Betty is my mother, and Lyle and Emily are my grandparents.

I really like this picture because Betty seems to be smiling broadly and Emily has a smile on her face.  I have very few pictures with both of them smiling or laughing!
