Westward Ho!

A week from today, Short Stuff and I are heading out to Seattle for five glorious days to visit with my wonderful cousin and her amazing family.

Not only are they fun and cool as hell, they are all freakishly good looking humans!

As a friend of mine said "They look like they could be in a picture frame insert."

I hope they are ready for these Crazy Midwesterners.

Our mothers are identical twins however, you wouldn't know it from looking at Amy and I. But because they are identical twins, that makes us half sisters. Or so we have said for 35+ years.
When we were little and the families got together, it was insane! Twins sisters, plus all their kids, and their husbands in one house.
Therefore the parents called it "Camp Runamukah" As we would all Run-Amok. It was always wild fun with the week ending in a talent show and an award ceremony. Someone usually ended up in tears due to either not receiving an award or getting a mean award. Ah, those were the days. Nothing beats family, huh?

Even though we haven't seen each other in way too long but that doesn't mean I don't love her to pieces and am so excited for this trip!

Awwww, you are so cute, Tammy dear! I cannot wait! Thinking about hiding away some Andes mints for Ben, Samuel, and Tali to get into in the middle of the night! And I CAN'T wait for the Banquet Awards night. The costume crew is ready and do you think it would be too immature now that we have kids to give all of the awards to ourselves???
