A Little Vacation…

My siblings and I live all over the country.
From Alaska to Georgia, and sprinkled in between…..seriously, all over the country.
And for the last few days, two of my sweet sisters (and a niece) have been here, hanging out with us here in warm Georgia.  And rubbing my baby belly for good luck. (Okay, and doing my dishes and playing with my busy kids……ahhhh!  Thanks April and Jodi!)
So I haven’t been around here much.  (Or keeping my sewing machine busy.)  We’ve been busy staying up until 3am, munching on delicious snacks, laughing ourselves silly remembering our little girl days, and catching up on each other’s lives and children.  It has been a great mini sisters weekend…..maybe next time the other 2, plus our melts-right-into-the-mix-sister-in-law, can make it.  (Shall we start planning now sisters?)
And because they came this far east, we had to take in a little of the Atlantic ocean yesterday.

And who needs a tripod or photographer when you can take pictures like this?  All nice and out of focus or someone out of the frame.  No biggee…


And the kids completely enjoyed squishing their toes in the wet sand.
Oh, and playing around.  Because the weather was absolutely perfect.

My kiddos with their sweet little Alaskan cousin.  Quite the trio.
And full out belly laughs? 
Plenty of those were heard while relaxing on the swing.
Well, off to have a few more adventures while they’re here.
