Fashionable Family Friday: Slumpy and Sassy

I have no idea why my sister and I are dressed alike — it wasn’t a common practice of ours — but here we are.  The fashions are nice, but Sister S demonstrates (once again) that it’s really all about attitude.

My mother-in-law, M always surprises me at Easter with gorgeous flowers for the garden and back porch.  This year she and I went shopping together and had a delightful time.  Look at all this beauty!

H and I recently took the ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island and back — what a magical view of the city.  These seagulls followed the boat most of the way across and rejoined us on our return.

Easter Sunday!  It appears that Sister L and I claimed Dad’s knees before Sister S did. (The fact that she’s marching away from us is not a good sign.)

While in New York City a couple of weekends ago, H and I visited One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower).  The panoramic view from the observatory on the 100th floor is breathtaking.

Yesterday, H and I discovered a stunning sculpture while on a walk in one of our local parks.  This huge flower, its petals made of bicycle rims, towered over the path.  Each wheel spun lazily in the breeze.

We were ready to greet the day.  Just look at those fresh, smiling little faces.
