Cousin Fun!

Maddy and I are so excited!

We have a girls trip planned and it's coming up soon!!
Windy City - here we come -- 4th of July weekend!

Oh, we do wish that my Mom and all the girls in the family could join us, but other commitments, work, family, etc. made that impossible.

Mr. Tennis thinks we are the "high maintenance" sisters (me and sissy Amy)
and I'm sure he's wondering what all we have planned! HA!

Well, there will simply not be enough time to schedule hair-straightening, facials, botox, etc. , though we may be able to squeeze a makeover and a little shopping at Nord*strom's on the schedule!

The last time Maddy was in Chicago, it was 2004 and she was 2-1/2 years old.

We met some travelmates there and had such a wonderful time together. Unfortunately, they have moved to Arizona now, so we won't be able to see them, but Arizona is on our list of places to visit!

Playing with Legos at the hotel.

Amy and I are so excited to have a trip together with the girls who are now 8-1/2 and 11 years old-- perfect ages! Actually, every age with these girls is perfect! They have so much fun together. Watch for a special Chicago edition of Boo Adventures coming in July!

I am jealous too! I have never been to Chicago (or Chimney Rock for that matter), but I really want to go sometime! I know you gals will have a great time! I hope you can find a botox special while you are there!

The windy city is one of our favorite places. Have fun shopping. Will there be an American girl doll visit too?

Sounds fun! Do you have room for one or two more? The 4th of July will be here before we know it, the summer is slipping away and seems like it just begun. Have a wonderful weekend!
