My family is complicated and tangly.
It's huge and all over the place.
Every single loud aunt, sperm-donor cousin, and loopy uncle I'm proud to call my own....most of the time. Sometimes I laugh at their antics, other times I roll my eyes and snicker, sometimes my heart breaks and the worst is when I feel apathetic.
After visiting family earlier this year I knew I had to have two of my half sisters visit. No more apathy. Do something. Love well.
So, after a story to long to tell here, they were able to visit!
And though I had done the majority of activities already it was fascinating to do them with people that had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
We had a blast.
Let's revisit summer.

|Tucked away on 2nd Ave and free - go search for gold at the |
Klondike Gold Rush National Park

|Don't forget to stop for treats on the way to Mt. Rainier|
|Nachos at the Renaissance Cafe hit the spot|
|The quintessential Tacoma photo op|
|First time at Kinza and eating Asian food |
- they loved it - because gyoza is kinda like an empanada -
Here's to family, sisters, summer and next summer.
Do you look like your sisters?
