Great Time

We've had a fun two weeks with my sister here. Below are some pictures from various outings!
Today, we are a bit sad as she will be leaving for the airport in about 4 hours from now.

Eden with Aunt Sarah

There are numerous pictures I could post of our sight seeing with my sister Sarah, but I'll just post a few. Today we went to Eden Nature Park. It was a great day of enjoying nature and time with Sarah.

Paradise Beach with Aunt Sarah

We are having a wonderful visit with Sarah. The kids were thrilled with kraft macaroni and cheese, goldfish crackers, fruit snacks, real butterworth syrup and other neat-to-eat-goodies Aunt Sarah gave them this morning prior to leaving for the beach.
