With one I keep things a secret that she had asked me to do and I thought I was doing the right thing by keeping her confidence. In the end I was wrong. And I happen to be one other those people who gets upset when confronted and said things to her and my parents that I can never make up for or taken back.
My other sister and I have always been distant. I did try to make things work but when you had me as a big sister it is kind of hard to get past me being the way I was. I guess I told her I hated her and was very very mean. I never really appreciated what it was to have sisters until I was older. Now it is to late.
I want the long conversations on the phone about nothing and the spending time together being silly. But, I know in reality that will never happen. There is nothing that I can do to fix the past. I am trying to set a future.
Now, my youngest sister is getting married. I am so excited to watch her walk down the isle like I did when my middle sister got married. I still have her program from her wedding with the pictures that I took. Now, with the youngest getting married I can make scrapbook of their weddings for me to reflect back on.
These are the memories that I keep.
Do I wish we had a closer relationship? You bet. But, for me to call or stop by I just feel out of place. Like I said I am the stranger among family.

The kids(and me) have shown interest in Geo Caching also, But, I am trying to decide if it will be worth the expense of buying a GPS unit for this adventure. So if anyone want to get one for me I will not protest. Hint hint hint

So, while in Green Bay spent some quality time with my Aunts and Uncles. I stopped by my Aunt Janets house. (which happens to be my childhood home). I walked around the house and remembered how it was when I was a kid.
Drove by lots of places that hold memories for me.
I also took lots of pictures of myself with my family. Usually, I am the one who takes all the pictures and I do not come out from behind the camara. But, I have begun to realize I need these photos of myself with people I care about. So, now begins the all the pictures that I took because all everyone said was will we see these on your Blog.
For all of you who wanted to see yourself on the blog here we go.
I added a slide show above for all to see.

This year we spent a lot of weekends at the Minneapolis Farmers Market. So I had some amazing photos I was excited to share with everyone. Here is my first photo I was just amazed by the size of this cabbage that I need to use my nephew as a measuring devise just to show how big this head of cabbage was. (imagine the amount of egg rolls that would make)
Next we have another head of cabbage and it was already next to a watermelon so you can see the size is very large.
This is my favorite photo of them all. I did not do any photoshop to this picture this is the was they are grown. We have Purple and orange cauliflower and a hybrid of Broccoli cauliflower. Amazing isn't it. The things people come up with. I have no idea how they do it but it is so cool. The kids thought that it was cool to eat such colorful veggies. Now we have to wait till next season to get more.
Just a side note. For those of you who use AOL Journel. I am unable to comment. But I do stop by and check out your photo's. Thank you to all that stop over for a visit.
