Mary!

My sister-in-law, Mary, is in town! Not only is she my sister-in-law but I consider her my best friend. I miss her so much!!

We got together Friday. She took me and my kids out to lunch, then we went to the park, and then we went to Allan’s parents’ house and visited there for a while.

All four of my kids LOOOOOOVE their aunt Mary! Payson was Ember’s age when we moved away from Texas so he spent the trip getting to know Mary better. Ember had never met her, of course, but she fell in love instantly.

Brooklyn asked me to take this picture of her going down the stairs at grandma’s.

The next day (Saturday) she came over to my house while Allan went fishing with her husband (Allan’s brother), Don, and Allan’s dad.

We spent the day talking and we took a little walk into the desert.
We took a couple pictures that I really love.

I’ll print one of these for the kids’ rooms.

And one of me with my kids πŸ™‚ Mary’s a photographer, too!

On the way back I wanted Brooklyn to take a picture of me and Mary wearing our babies in the back/front packs. I told Brooklyn to stay still for a second so I could set the exposure and she looked so cute!

And then she nailed the focus on this shot of Mary and me!

Payson was dawdling a lot on the way back. It was warm and he was tired and just wanted to play with rocks and sticks and sit on boulders in our neighbor’s yard.
He asked me to sit by him and so I did for a second.

Allan, Don and Allan’s dad got home a little bit later and Allan took some pictures of Mary and me. We wear the same pant size and we’ve both been growing our hair out so it was fun to have those similarities πŸ™‚
