Our Goodbye

Like all good things they must come to an end! My sister and her lovely family returned back home last week. My week has been very quiet with the kids back at school from winter break and now they have gone too! Although the floors in my home made a huge sigh of relief they too are missing the many feet that ran, walked and crawled across them in the previous weeks. We had a wonderful visit and I am thankful for all the moments we shared. I now am looking forward to the summer when we will see them again!

We started the day off by hanging out one last time before we went of to the airport!

This is the first half of the family on the escalators! See the guy checking us out? We are so use to people staring when we ever go anywhere as a group. There are just so many stinking kids and people stare trying their best to figure it out.

And these are my sisters (Coo Coo) new shape up shoes! She loves them and has been told that she should do a commercial because of the passion she holds in these puppies!

Looks like a Cat fight ready to break out but don't get your hopes up they were just fighting over the shape up shoes! You know, who loves them more.
