play day(s)

Yesterday, as i said...well, yesterday, was my sister Stephanie's birthday. She had some tragedy befall her fiance's family, but we were able to sweep her away to enjoy her day for just a bit.

We all got dressed up in our vintage attire...well, I am really the only one out of the four of us that doesn't do it on a daily or almost daily basis. Of course, I am rubbish at documenting things, so I don't have one picture of the four of us, full body. I have these five shots that I took in the car...
The birthday girl: driving b/c Renee and I both have Cavaliers that are too small for the three tall girls, and me.
Blindly shooting the backseat, I got Donna making a weird face,
and Renee's hand..
...and then the two of them upon my second try to get Renee
And me...making a weird face. We are a family of weird-face makers.
It was fun. We all make each other laugh so hard that one, or sometimes all, of us has tears.
We went for tea at the place the girls like to go. I live about 30-40 minutes away from the rest of them, so they definitely hang out more than I do, but it is nice when I am able to join the gang. I wish I had gotten better pictures.
After tea, we had cupcakes back at Donna's and eventually were playing instruments and trying to decide if our band should be all flutes or a combo: flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon. Since we don't have two of those instruments, we had a hard time deciding!!
Today, I think I will try to practice a bit, since I've not had time until now....


  1. Glad you got to squeeze in some birthday time for your sister with all the bad news right now I am sure she appreciated a little girl time.

  2. What fun pictures! At least you took some. *~_^* It is a bit of a bummer that we four can't get together more often. We'll have to brainstorm that one, eh?

  3. I was oboe/bassoon shopping again on ebay today. What have we started! We may all end up playing in your friends 'concert band' or making fun youtube videos at least.
