Aunt Dorie, Victoria and Heather....

Thursday night brought my Aunt Dorie, and cousins Victoria and Heather all the way from NY to Kansas! Mom picked them up at the airport in the evening, (you don't want to ask how their flight was...) and brought them home. Friday night Scott, Paul and I headed to Mom and Dad's for supper and a long over-due visit. Dorie is Mom's only sister and she has flown out at least once a year for the past 7-8 years while Grandma, (and at first Grandpa) live near here in a nursing home. We always looked forward to her visits, and her trademark treat- fresh from the bakery NY bagels! Yummy! You could always SMELL her suitcase, it was scented with garlic bagels!
We have not been able to see her children or husband as much, but this time she brought her two oldest, Victoria who is 19 and Heather who is 17. We had a great time talking, laughing and hugging. Saturday they came over for a while to see where we live, but moved along as Scott and I were butchering. :)
Saturday night found us back at Mom and Dad's for a campfire and smores. They left today with Esther as tour-guide and headed down to Rebecca and Andrews for the night before flying home tomorrow. We loved our visit and miss you already!

What a fun time! I remember those bagels that Aunt Dorie brought when we were all there for your wedding last year. :-)
