Sisters

It’s not very often that all of my sisters are in the same place. We are all busy with jobs and kids and just life in general. We are spread out, 2 in Minnesota, 1 in Wisconsin and 1 in Colorado.

Yesterday my Colorado sister, Kristen, happened to be passing through the Twin Cities. So, we made a plan to meet for lunch. Figuring out when and where to meet was like planning a world summit a bit difficult, but eventually things came together.

We ate lunch at delicious Mexican restaurant and then came back to my house for a sister photo shoot.

It went a little like this:
Julie – I need to stand on the left side.
Cara – I think I’m standing in a hole, I’m not really this much shorter.
Mel – Wait, I was talking.

Mel – Let’s do that again, I need to suck in my stomach.
Julie – I don’t want to stand by Mel, her hair always looks good.

Mel – Fine, let’s switch places.

Cara – OH! Because I look BAD?!?!
Mel – noooo!
Kristen – let’s just take the picture.

Cara – Wait! Why am I the only one with my arms in the front????
Kristen – Mel, stop touching my boob.

Mel – Here’s my arm in front…. BOOM!

Cara – here’s my arm in front! (Flexes muscle)
Julie – let’s flex our muscles!
Mel – wait…. I don’t have arm muscles!

Mel – fine. I’ll try.

Julie – Wait, Mel…. why do you have your arm out like that??
Mel – It makes your arm look skinnier!
Kristen – I’ll do it too!
Cara – no fair. I can’t have my arm out.

Kristen – Can we be done now?
Mel – I think we took about 75 pictures, there has to be ONE good one in there.
Julie – Hurry up, I can’t suck in my stomach for much longer.

Finally! A great picture!

Nothing is easy when the four of us are together, but it was a lot of fun. They may drive me craxy sometimes, but they’re my sisters and I think I’ll keep them.
