Big Sis

My big sister Bonnie is in town this week. She and her family live in the Pacific Northwest, so they only come in town about once a year. This year, obviously, is extra special because Micah is meeting his cousins and his aunt Bonnie. Her husband is off to Costa Rica to find them a place to live for the next nine months! Nice! Hopefully we'll be visiting Costa Rica early next spring. My nephew S. said the funniest thing ever tonight - his brother L. was whining and this is what followed:

Bonnie: Are you whining? I keep telling you that we don't speak "whinese" here! :)
S.: But mom, whinese is your favorite drink!

I'm still laughing at that one.

We have been having a fun week - we've been out to dinner, had dinner at all the grandparents' houses, we've gone to the library, and we went to the Butterfly House, which was a lot of fun.

This is Bonnie trying to fit 3 carseats into the back of my outback. :) Micah reaching out to S. reminds me of the picture of cutie Silas reaching out to make friends on Amy's site.


Bonnie and her boys at the butterfly house.
Ummm.... how cute is this - my little butterfly boy? I'm sure Kevin (and someday Micah) will hate this picture, but I think it is ADORABLE!! :)

This is one of the first times Micah met aunt Bonnie - he was pretty tired at this point, but trust me, he was very excited at the beginning of the night. :0)


  1. That butterfly picture is awesome! I love the way it looks like Micah has antennae. Hilarious!

  2. Micah is just soooo cute! I wish we all lived closer so we could have fun play dates!! I am also glad his auntie could come visit!!

  3. looks like lots of fun! can't wait to go to the Butterfly House - I've been wanting to go for a few years now!

    Cute kiddos! enjoy the rest of your visit,

  4. How fun! Looks like you all are having a great time!!

  5. That butterfly picture is an award winner for sure!! Isn't family wonderful? I bet your nephews LOVED Micah, and vise versa. Enjoy your time with your sister.
