Kate and her beautiful babies...

Okay, so technically, my nieces and nephews are not babies...no, they are not.   Everytime I see them I'm amazed.   So beautiful and sweet.  Kate is my sister.  My older sister.  The track star...beautiful, kind, funny, sweet, hilarious (oh yes, I said that all ready...but she really makes me laugh).  I remember in Jr. High thinking...wow, Kate is just really the coolest girl ever.  And yes, I would follow her around everywhere.  I'm sure it was not as cool to have a little nerdy Jr high girl following you around but she tolerated me.  I'd send her notes when she was in college and sign my letters, Z.  Yes, I'm cool I get that. ;p  And Kate would just go with that...oh funny times. 


Now, we both have kids and I feel like we are closer than ever.  Even though we live in separate states. I've had so many conversations with her where I end up having tears streaming down my face from laughing so hard.  Kate you make me smile! 


So did my visit with them go WAY TOO FAST.  Yes, yes it did.  From hiking, to movies, baskin robbin nights, pulling weeds, making them walk through really crazy ant hills to get great pictures (I didn't notice all the bites on my legs until I got home), losing my camera bag and having Kate ask random people for it...and don't worry we found it BUT I kind of almost had a heart attack...and then to watching Lanie make dinner for us...yes, I'm a cool Aunt like that.  I make kids cook for me. ;p  Actually, Lanie wanted to make an amazing salad for us....and it was awesome!  Ayden would set up treasure hunts for Hudson, Rylan and Kenzie...Josie would try and make me watch some random movie called "hot rod" while Kate would roll her eyes and say "lame".  I think I now have to watch it.  Love all of you and I miss you on a daily basis...and ps, for the rest of my fam...I miss you on a daily basis as well. :)

Once again, as always, you have captured the essence of the people in your pictures. No wonder some ancient cultures were/are afraid of the camera. Beautifully done. Rosemary
