My Sister's Coming!

I'm so excited...my lil' sister, April is coming down, along with her four little ones to stay with us for two weeks. The plan is for her to drive straight through from Utah to Huntington Beach. I definitely don't envy her, trying to handle all four of her kids + drive 11 hours (and they are a wild bunch!)

When I was a single mom of three, back in the day, I made an annual Utah trip every 4th of July to visit my family. I saved myself a bit of a headache by leaving at about 9:00 pm (kids bedtime.) Then I drove the 5 hours to Mesquite, NV to sleep (1/2 way point.) I saved myself only half a trip of listening to my boys, argue, fight, complain & making tons of bathroom stops. 

Last time she came down we did a beach photo shoot (here's some shots.) I'm sure there'll be tons more this time. Wish I was off work to be able to spend more time with them. Oh well, no complaining right...enjoy whatever we can. Besides, there's nothing better than being with family for the 4th of July!

Sis is here with "the wild bunch" who are a tired bunch...she will see on Wednesday instead. I can't believe she made that trip with four young ones all the way!
