On Friday Leo and I packed up the car and headed to Lansing to visit my sister in her new apartment. Originally Dave was going to come with us, but then a few weeks ago my other sister mentioned she was wanting to come visit and asked about the exact weekend! It worked really well since we were already planning on heading up there, but Dave bowed out to give us a sisters’ weekend (and gave him a chance to enjoy a weekend in a quiet house and to knock out some looming house projects).
We had a great weekend hanging out, making good food, exploring a farmer’s market, grabbing ice cream from the MSU Dairy Store, running around the MSU children’s garden, taking walks, and just hanging out and playing. Leo and I even got to enjoy a morning stroller run with Kelly and Astrid! Leo was a little possessive/unsure about his cousin Astrid at first – he would claim my lap and try to tell me not to touch her – but really warmed up to her by the end of the weekend. I wish we could have captured his precious goodbye to her – he crouched down, waved, said, “bye Astrid!” and then leaned in to give her a kiss on the mouth. SO CUTE.
We did fail to take a sister picture, but other than that it was a pretty perfect weekend. So excited to have all my sisters much closer now!
