Two of my three sisters drove the seven hours up for the long weekend, and we packed it full.
Tighter than a suitcase bound for Toronto.
We're a tall group of women. 5'11, 5'9 and a shade shy of 5'8.
It's our strong dutch heritage, plus the wheat germ our mom put in our cereal.
On the left is my
My youngest Cool Sister wasn't able to come because she was doing something cool...
Like taking a jaunt off to England with her British husband and her baby boy.
Since she's expecting again, I guess we can forgive her.
I suppose his family should see them once in awhile too.
But we were definitely one short.
A certain sister decided she didn't like her scarf in the pictures.
A discussion was had about necks and their widths.
Some were wider than others.
Some were Grace Kelly-ish.
But no one was bitter.
We're long past the concerns of who has what and where we have it.
It was a sisterly bonding moment.
So here is one where we aren't quite as in focus, but everyone will be much happier with the choice.
We had a whirlwind weekend.
The kind of family frenzy that comes with eight cousins and three brother in laws.
We also took the opportunity to celebrate our Nana's 93rd birthday.
It was also the weekend she was going to be moving into a brand new care facility.
Many sister hands lifted and sorted, making the job lighter in both weight and spirit.
The visiting was busy and bright.
The laughing felt good.
It felt right.
It was how family should feel.
Many photos were taken...
when aunty (that's me) decided to get her picture taking groove on.
and tried to take advantage of the picture perfect light.
It was so nice to see what this camera could do.
With faces other than my own three girls.
The lighting? Did I mention the perfect lighting?
hmm.. maybe I did.
Plus, of course... the amazing genetics shining through, ahem.
The weekend ended with a wave good bye to our guests,
and a sledge hammer smashing into the basement walls.
This is what family looks like at Bungalow'56!
