Chloe loved her friends, especially Jason, Evan, Lily and Cara. She has a true passion for adventure; especially skiing, swimming and dancing. She loved baking and desserts, campfires and s’mores, and ice cream any day of the week. She LOVED school… all her friends there, the staff, and even homework. Chloe had a fondness for animals, especially her chickens and rooster she called Shadow. She loved to build Legos and take rides on the gator. She could play with her dolls for hours on end.
