Because my darn sister and her husband felt like a job was important to their well-being...they took my nephew(s) and niece and moved as far as they could.
I mean, those were some of our best friends!
And they just up and left us.
Whatever, I'm over it now, obviously, so any opportunity to visit their so-called home state, I'll gladly take it. And they've only lived in Georgia for a year and a half, but I've already visited during all four seasons, aaaaaaand....I can see why they love it there. It's absolutely beautiful. Plus, I'm kind of an architecture/history fanatic, so that place feeds my need for old homes and buildings.
ANYWAY, flights were cheap...ish...and Grace convinced me to come over for a few days to visit with our other sister, Emma. It was pure heaven. I only took Olivia with me, and I can't for the life of me figure out why I ever thought one child was difficult! (Not bashing on you moms of only one, because the transition from none to one was definitely the hardest for me, but sheesh, only having to deal with one kid instead of three was C.A.K.E.)
Basically what I'm trying to convey is this: I was on vacation the ENTIRE time.
(Except for the traveling part, on an airplane with a restless 22 month old--but that's a different story)
So now, here I am, back home already, and missing all of my loved ones dearly.
Until next time...and hopefully it's soon.
Holland and Olivia (or Holly and Ollie, nicknames given to them by their Opa) are finally at the stage where they remember each other and want to be with each other. This was such a fun trip to watch them because they are seriously too freaking cute.
My mother planted some carrots in Grace's garden last summer and they were forgotten about...until I found them...
...they were enormous.
But it didn't stop the girls from snacking on them!
We REALLY like having our own little mini-me dress-up dolls. That's what having little girls are for, right??
We went hiking to a beautiful waterfall, and then noticed Livvy and I had matching shoes!
I love my sisters so much, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without their love and friendship. The best thing though, is how much we can laugh with each other.
Or at each other. Whatever.
