Sisterly Love

There is nothing like having a sister! And fortunate for me, I have 3 of them! My sister Mimi called and told me that she wanted to come up and spend Friday with me because we had not been able to get together for awhile and of course I told her I would drop everything and we can take off for the day. She arrived on Thursday and was able to spend some time with the boys since they love their Auntie Mimi. She has watched them many times for us, once for 10 days when they were young and we went to Hawaii! She is pretty awesome that way:)

We really did not have a plan so we just hopped in the car and took off. When we usually get together we go to Disneyland or Knotts Berry Farm or something else fun but since she is still healing from breaking her foot we thought that probably was not a great idea. So we ended up just driving up the coast towards Santa Barbara and seriously just enjoying the day without a plan! We did some shopping, some hiking, hung out at the beach, walked the pier and ate at a restraunt there. Seafood Cobb Salad was delicious! Best part is ---- the non-stop talking! We just chatted and laughed the whole day long! It was wonderful! I love hanging with my sister and I look forward to the next time. Sister time is the best!!

This is her with her kids and grandkids minus one son who was on a mission at the time

Dude... that sounds like an amazing day... but next time Disneyland is totally better with a wheelchair!! Trust me I know... the lines are way shorter that way! :) But I am glad you were able to improvise and enjoy your sister bonding time!
