Yesterday evening we had a family dinner with my sister and her husband. This morning they packed what was left in their Ballard apartment into their car and started a three and a half day journey to their new home in Chicago.
While my brother lived in San Francisco for most of a year recently, that somehow seemed different... probably because we knew he wasn't planning to stay there. Alex and Kelly are planning to stay in Chicago. We know we'll see them again, but Chicago just feels like a long way away! We are looking forward to seeing them in November after baby Halcyone is born!
We've had a lot of fun with them over the past year; camping and crabbing, watching movies, sharing dinner and getting cupcakes, working on their wedding, playing board games, and introducing Alex to fireworks purchasing and lighting. Below are some of the pictures from these events together!
