Apparently my sisters and cousin say that I write about running too much on my blog. That really confused me because I thought they could read... I mean my blog is titled, "The Unlikely RUNNERS" so naturally I would expect there to be a lot of things about running.... (I love you guys, I'm just giving you a hard time, but seriously, this one has nothing to do with running!)
This past weekend Nanna took my sisters, my cousin Taylor and I on a little weekend getaway to Fort Worth for some good old fashioned family time! Our "girl's weekends" have become a tradition for us and it's something that we look forward to almost every year. We try to do something each Memorial Day because our great-grandmother's birthday is on the 28th of May and usually always falls somewhere during that weekend. Mama (pronounced Mo-Mo) passed away a little over a year ago and we miss her greatly but we still love to celebrate her and her life and carry on the tradition of spending time together as a family.
Nanna, having had boys herself was very excited when she got her grand daughters all in a row and so close together! We are so blessed to have such a wonderful grandmother who spends so much time and energy on us and who provides fun weekends for us. Taylor and Sara both live far away and so they flew in on Friday evening and we all spent the night at Nanna's on Friday night. We got up on Saturday to a yummy breakfast and then loaded the car and hit the road to Ft. Worth. The nice thing about going to Ft. Worth is that it's not too far but we are still in a place that isn't our normal stomping grounds and there was plenty for us to do. We stayed at a nice little bed and breakfast that on first glance seemed a bit on the sketchy side but then wound up being a nice little place that we all really enjoyed. We spend a lot of time finding nice resturants and I'm pretty sure I gained about 10lbs over the weekend enjoying the food. We did some shopping, saw and movie and were just able to spend time relaxing together and enjoying each other's company.
So here is our weekend in pictures:
