- It was nice to have an extra pairs of hands to her me take care of my kids (although, I think this visit may have deterred her from having any more kids herself).
- I liked having someone to make and eat treats with without feeling guilty.
- I love the level of comfort our relationship has. We spent the better part of 18 years together- sharing a room for most of them. And while those times we not always pleasant- I think that all of the hard times were worth it to get us where we are today. I love you sis!
- I'm so glad that there is someone else in the world who laughs harder at their own jokes than anyone else.
During the whole visit, I don't think we managed to get a picture of the two of us together. Inevitably though, almost everywhere we went, people asked us if we were twins.
We did get some cute pictures of the kids- especially our two little babies who are only 2 weeks apart. I added some more to my my web album here, but I'll also post a few of my favorites.

Maryn and Ellena in matching outfits (we did this a lot).
I do want to write another post about our trip to Nauvoo and Easter times (maybe two more posts) because they were special events and this post is getting long. (Maybe after I conquer this mountain of laundry...)
