Spot on Sisters' Re-union

~The day finally arrived ! It has been many years since all my sisters and myself have been together. Three of us live here in Washington, but our baby sister flew here from New York. From left ( youngest ) to right ( oldest ), sister Tricia, sister Joni, sister Karen, myself, the OLDEST!We are at the home of my daughter A.Joy, and un-beknownst to us, my grandchildren hid plastic bugs, spiders and snakes in and amongst the car and our things. This set the scene for some exciting times on our reunion get away!
~We arrived in Ocean Shores, but before we checked into our penthouse suite, we decided to stock up on groceries for the weekend.~
~If there had been music we could have arranged a shopping cart dance in the grocery store !~
~We ate well and enjoyed the sunset on the ocean horizon.~
~The next morning sister Joni had the staff cleaning lady take our picture in our p.j.'s !~
~Tomorrow, The Rest of the Story!~
Blessings : good times with sisters, sunsets and sunrises, sisters

Oh my goodness...does that ever look fun?! I have one sister, one very precious to me, 12 years younger than me, like a twin in my own heart. I cannot imagine 3 sisters. :)

Looks like you're having a ball! The last photo made me laugh!

As I woke up this morning at 4:30 am to take sister Tricia to the airport she asked me if I had the snake and I said why would I have it, last time I saw it it was in the whopper carton waiting for her to find it when she passed out whoppers and nearly passsed out herself. Love Karen

What a blessing to have such a fun visit with one another. Sounds like the snakes kept things lively. I'm just glad I did not see any news reports about you four!

Amy said...

How fun! I have a sister but I'm the oldest even though they think she's the oldest, LOL but nope. She was 4 mos. old when she came to the USA and I think I was 2 years old when we welcomed her into the family. The plastic bugs and spiders and snakes reminded me of the one scene in The Sound of Music ;)

The 4 R's for the 4 sisters - renew, refresh, restore, recreate. What a grand time you've had, what great memories you've made.

Have missed you online but OH what a wonderful time you must have had - I have no sisters and always thought it would be great to have someone to share. Grand silliness with the spiders and snakes and scares oh my!

Miss Linda said...

It looks like you had so much fun, except for the plastic insects and reptiles!! Now you can all plot your revenge!

A. Joy said...

Looks like the trip was lots of fun! Love the picture of you gals in pjs! How was the weather there?
Do you know who gave my son the fake bugs and reptiles???? Dear Auntie Karen! Can't wait to hear more. =)

Mary, it was fun. Do you and your sister see each other often ?

Shellmo, that snake caused a LOT of fright for 1 sister.

Anonymous ( Karen )she'll probably be expecting that snake to be hidden in some of her luggage as she unpacks !

Mildred, I am glad too, there were some intense driving moments..in anticipation of finding more frightful critters AND the search for ...

Amy,,I don't remember that scene , I will have to watch Sound of Music again. Will you be seeing your sister soon ?

Sandra, we did receive the 4 R's and have a great time . We are planning this again in 2 years. ( Lord willing )

LindaSue, grand silliness is a wonderfully appropriate title to our get togethers!

Miss Linda, do plastic creepy crawlies bother you ?

A.Joy, the plot thickens ! Thanks to the grandkids for a lot of entertainment!

Miss Sandy said...

This looks like so much fun. As an only child I never had the pleasure of sisters. I am intrigued by that last photo!

How wonderful! It's just the greatest you are all there. Can't wait to hear the rest.

Lanny said...

The picture of your sister's with their hands held up. I thought you were making them take the "I won't put anything untoward in your shopping cart", or their own for that matter pledge before you would shop with them!

KathyB. said...

Lanny, you have no idea how very appropriate that pledge would be when you shop with them !I think I will make them take that pledge next time !

Miss Sandy, I am always intrigued by only children, and yes, sisters are a lot of fun.

Noble Pig, I was thinking about how amazing it is that we are all still pretty healthy and able to get together when you figure 3 of us have hit the half-century mark ! Baby sister is almost there too !
