I'm pretty sure they all enjoy these getaways and enjoy the chance to interact as grown-up sisters, free from the wants and needs of husbands and children, free to just be sisters again for a couple of days. It was fun to see the pictures they posted on Instagram of them doing each others' hair and having fun together.
They went to Calgary this year, which is almost exactly half way between where some of them live in Edmonton and where Lloyd and I live in Lethbridge. And this time Lloyd and I were invited to drive up (2.5 hrs.) and join them for dinner on Saturday.

What a fun time that was. The girls are all different, with different personalities and life circumstances, likes and dislikes. Yet they get together and interact so well with other, knowing that they are loved unconditionally by their siblings and parents. Lloyd and I thoroughly enjoyed being involved in a small part of their celebration of sisterhood.

And just so Baby Sister, Emily, isn't left out...

And the reason Emily wasn't at the weekend getaway...

would have starved if her Mom went without her.
Enjoy your sisters, they're the best friends you'll ever have.
Love you, Wendy.
