Girls weekend!

One fine weekend in April, my mom's 2 sisters decided to go visit her and have a girls weekend. 2 of my girl cousins got to join in on the fun. I decided that it would be fun to go and surprise everyone by showing up. When I arrived on Friday night, I rang the doorbell and my girl cousins ran to the door screaming "Jenny Jenny Jenny is here." We had a great time that weekend. Friday night was filled with food and visiting. I was shocked and amazed when at about 9:00 my mom and her sisters were ready to turn in for the night! I sure know that I take after the Smith side of my family being a night owl. Good thing I had a book to keep me up until an appropriate time to turn in for a Friday night! :) Saturday, I took the girls to a park and then we went shopping. We also went out for coffee and had a lavender latte! Have you ever had one? If not, it's definitely worth a try (although one of my aunties didn't care for her's too much) Saturday evening 2 more of my cousins, who live in the area spent the night at moms house. There were 4 little bodies in the living room for the night. I was once again shocked and amazed when on Sunday morning I heard my 4 cousins talking, giggling, and some arguing at 6:30 am!!! I was definitely not ready to face the day yet! Anyway - a great time was had by all. I'm thankful that my mom, aunts and girl cousins let me in on their girls weekend (uh, not that they had much choice) :)

Sophie posing and being cute!

Chloe's turn for posing. This rock was so tall - she is an amazing rock climber!

Chloe and Sophie - my 2 adorable cousins!
The girls and me! Thanks to Chloe's fast climbing ability and the auto setting on my camera we were able to capture all 3 of us!

Again my adorable cousins. Chloe helped Sophie up this rock, it was super cute to see them working together!

4 bugs in 4 rugs!
Sunday morning I did the girl's hair! For Chloe and Sophie I did criss cross french braids. They are sort of hard to see in this picture but super cute! Willa wanted a ponytail so that's what she got!

The kids all crammed in the car - heading back to Uncle Chris's to drop off 2 kids! See Finn tucked way in the back?

My mom and her lovely sisters! Aren't the beautiful? What an honor to have them in my family!
