My sister

We've had A LOT of fun so far this weekend....it's not even done!  I've got lots of posts to do, but I couldn't wait to post these pictures.  On Saturday, our family got to spend some time with my sister, Lisa, at my parents' house.  We haven't been all together as a family like this for years.  It was wonderful.  




Here are a few where you can see her crazy personality coming through...


 She made a silly face and had us all laughing.  When I asked her to do it again so I could take a picture, she did!

I think the relaxing (and familiar) atmosphere of my parents' backyard was perfect.  She felt "safe" and we got a glimpse of the Lisa we all know and love.

She even held Camille and would rest her cheek on Camille's head or give her kisses.

The girls were amazingly quiet and well mannered (thank you, Jesus), and even took turns napping.  Camille was asleep when Lisa arrived, and then Adeline......well....



These were our best attempts at a family photo.  We decided to try it with Adeline sleeping because I knew she wouldn't cooperate just after waking up.



Patrick trying a creative angle...

Always the picture of cuteness, Camille would pick Grandma's flowers and then "put them back."

We enjoyed a wonderful picnic of pizza and corn on the cob....we had a cookout earlier, and this combination sounded good to everyone.


Paw paw and the girls fed the fish.




Then it was time to say goodbye.

These are two of my favorite pictures.  They bring tears to my eyes.  So sweet.

Simply priceless!

I think Adeline should be in a magazine. She gets more and more adorable with the curly head! You always have the girls dressed just darling. I wish I had just one of her curls!

Now I have tears too. Praise be to our Awesome God for allowing such a wonderful time with your entire family. We need to cherish those memories when they come along. Lisa looks great & just as silly as every :-)
