Family Visits

Well....Here I sit on the couch typing this post. I'm sitting with Will while he watches cartoons. We are getting back to normal. Mother and Selle came to visit. We had the most fabulous time. We toured some Tucson landmarks and spent two night in Tubac at the spa. The kids had so much fun spending time with Mimi and Aunt Selle, and then "the big girls" had fun at the spa. We were celebrating Selle's 4oth birthday. We spent almost an entire day getting pampered at the spa. We all had facials, massages, manicures, and pedicures. We also had a "spa" lunch. I don't think I've recovered from all the pampering. We also ate and relaxed and had fun and laughed. Man....I don't think I've laughed so hard in a long time.
When we have visitors it always takes some time to get back into our normal life. This time is no different in that area. One big difference, though, is all the wonderful memories I have of spending time with my Mother and Sister. There is nothing like it. I think we could have fun anywhere. The normal everyday stuff turns into an adventure, and the most mundane tasks become hilarious. I swear you could make a movie out of our trips. This time was no different.
The one thing I'll take from this visit is more priceless than any treasure. The relationship that we have is absolutely the most precious thing. It gets stronger every time we see each other. I wouldn't trade it for anything. How blessed I am for having such a great Mother and Sister.
