Growing up, we spent a lot of time being annoyed with each other, pushing each other's buttons, crowding each other's private spaces, and generally being a pain. But, now I love being adult friends with my siblings. We have different and unique relationships with each other. We share our private lives, we ask for and give sound advice, and we generally like hanging out.
Of course we still have all out shouting matches and dole out superb silent treatments, but nothing beats having a good laugh with your siblings, best soul medicine there is.
Here are some pictures from our time together:
|Annie threatening to cut me if I didn't put the camera down (@PokPok in Portland).|
|Super majestic cat on stoop on Portland.|
|Annie was like, "Even the signs are super hipster in Portland."|
|Tony walking labyrinth at the Grotto in Portland.|
|Cute chapel at the Grotto, Portland.|
|The Grotto is a medival-ly mystic little forest plus hermitage plus cave, definitely worth a visit if you ever find yourself in Portland.|
|Toph being blessed by a holy statue.|
|I'm jealous that the two youngest kids in the clan got all the height, how am I the shortest of the bunch!|
|Toph was such a trooper, sleeping in cars and strange motel rooms.|
|Toph loved how dog friendly Vancouver was, she loved the beaches.|
|And the sea bus ride!|
|And the random art sculptures!|
|Toph was cold, so we got her a water proof jacket that she won't ever have to use in LA. Guess that means another visit to Vancouver.|
