My Favorite Sister

My sis came to visit last weekend! I can’t even tell you how happy that made me. At first, I wanted her to wait until Lars came back from North Carolina because I’m not really the “fun” one and I was worried her kids would be disappointed that he wasn’t there. But she came anyway and it turned out to be the best thing for me. I mean, I really really really needed a weekend of just fun.

And when I hang out with Rachel, I don’t need to worry about entertaining her or making sure everything in the house is picked up and perfect. You wouldn’t think that having four extra people in the house would be relaxing, but it really was!

So here’s our weekend in pictures:



tour of the house and yard

hang out



sourdough pancakes

conquering the dirt hill


Just Dance

I almost die while making popcorn

Rachel posts embarrassing photo of me on Facebook

Wreck it Ralph






Subway sandwiches


we take about 5000 awful pictures of ourselves in order to get The Perfect One

Candy Crush and then MORE Candy Crush

discovered: A Beautiful Mess app

Chicken Alfredo (Rachel’s FAVE!)


singing Everclear’s “Santa Monica” at the top of our lungs




watching my kids leave for school on the bus

Australian Rails (I won!)

Kaiden builds a fort out of garbage

softball game gets rained out

I don’t want Rachel to go home

But she does anyway 😦

So I leave whiney, depressing messages for her to get later.
