Late Nights, Shakes and Walks

My sweet sisters came for a visit last weekend and we decided we needed a few pics of the three of us, especially while we all have blonde hair. Ha! It's always changing.

We had fun chatting it up until the wee hours of the morn...fighting drooping eyelids so we could laugh and talk and be together just a little longer.

Some of us with the pretty flowers...

Thanks to my hubby who watched the kids so we were also able to go out for a little shopping and some delightful shakes....(Mmmmmm Raspberry Concrete goodness....I need more now)...then we finished off the visit with a late night walk, giggling and talking even more. I love it.

We enlisted Miss B to help us get some pics of our heads on the grass. Of course it was an overcast day which somehow leads to blindingly bright, burn your corneas, kind of sky. So we had to shut our eyes and open them on three...unfortunately...Miss B would snap the shutter ON three, not a few seconds after as I would we got a lot of these....don't they look like sweet Sleeping Beauties?! (Although one is at the ready with a cheesy grin...)

Then a LOT of these because half the pictures feature one or more of us with crazy, in-the-middle-of-opening eyes which doesn't make for a flattering picture. Plus one of us could hardly open her eyes ever, I won't mention who (ahem, Marci), so those pictures and her inability to get it together would send us into fits of laughter...see how brave I am to post this open-mouthed laugh picture of myself. It reminds me of a yawning hippo. Check out those teeth!

And then FINALLY!!! The one an only where, *cough* Marci, could keep those eyeballs open and looking normal!!!

I was so excited, I had to post a BW as well!

Thanks for the visit ya!
