Sister Camp

My parents do this wonderful thing they call Cousin Camp. Every summer they invite all the grandchildren to come to their house for a week of fun-filled activities and the best food (my kids) see all year! Seriously, my parents go over-the-top with the things they plan and it's so sweet.

So, that means my sister and I have one kid-free week every year (aka Sister Camp). She and I usually schedule half of the week to hang out together and the other half with our hubbies. We anticipate all the things we'll do together each year and then spend most of our time just hanging out chatting. We never run out of things to talk about and always feel the time goes too fast. But we LOVE it! This time I actually talked her into doing some blogging projects with me (squeee!) that I can't wait to show you.

Are you doing anything fun today or for the weekend?

P.S. I forgot my camera cord so we're posting pics from the phone. :D

    1. It really is. I've told them they should write a book because no two years are the activities the same.

    1. Of course I don't mind! I think everyone should have a week of sister camp. And if they don't have a sister, adopt a friend to be a sister for the week. :D

  10. I am just going bonkers for this chair. So awesome! You guys really do look tiny and shrunken. I love it! I wish we had cool stuff like that around here!

    And the idea of cousin camp and sister camp is a great one. A fantastic way for the cousins to bond (I wish I had had that with my cousins!) It's very cool of your parents to do that. And what a wonderful way for you to spend the break from the kids ; ]
