Yay! My sister came to visit! The ticket was a birthday surprise to her from her husband so she could come see her niecers, but it felt like a gift just for me!
She did a lot of playing in the backyard and babysitting (thanks!). We had a one fun day watching animals, riding the carousel, and taking the train at the zoo.
We did a fair amount of Grandma visiting, too, particularly since it was Mother's Day weekend. We even brought her to one of Sophie's soccer games!
One day, driving home from the mall, we agreed that there wasn't anyone that quite knew the other's history, shopping tastes, and issues the way a sister does. We may not always see eye-to-eye (though we frequently do), but we just "get" each other anyway somehow. I like that kid.
