Denver Girls' Weekend

This past weekend I had the very rare and wonderful opportunity to take a girls' road trip with my mom and sisters (one of which is a sister-in-law, but really a sister, right Christa?). Two of my sisters were running a 10K in Denver, so the rest of us decided the best thing to do would be to drive out and support them, and we were right. Teresa flew from SL, and Kristen drove out from Wichy. (They did awesome in their race, by the way. I want to be them when I grow up.)We had SO MUCH FUN. No kids, no husbands, just US. We did everything we've always dreamed of, like going out to eat, and shopping. We're really not that hard to please. Just give us a little cash, a few days to blow it in, and we're happy.
The beautiful city of Denver.

In case you're wondering, yes, we are used to posing for a living. Have you met our dad and his camera? We figured out a long time ago the best thing to do when the camera is around is just smile and get it over with. Now we are grateful to our dad for all the pictures through the years, and of course all the training.

This is l-r: Teresa (daughter #4), Shayna (#5), Alison (#2), Me (#1), Kristen (#3), our lovely mamacita, and Christa (married to son #1).
Love you guys!!! Till next year....

I am so jealous! I would love to have a weekend away with my mom and sisters. Your darling sister Teresa gave my kids their flu shots yesterday. She was quick and efficient and we survived without too much drama. It's amazing how much you all look alike!

I hope you don't mind but I stole the picture of all the shopping bags on the hotel bed for a post on my blog. I loved it! I am glad you ladies were able to spend that time together. I think it is so important to stay close as a family and especially as sisters and Mom.
