They came again! Two of my sisters came to visit in January!
It has been so fun to have family come to meet Oak, and take that long flight all over again. It’s incredible to see them leave their own husbands and kids for over two weeks, just to spend time with mine.
And yet it means the world to hear Oak say “Aunt Jenn” and “Aunt Keri.” It means the world to hear him sing and giggle with them. And it means the world for them to hear his voice and learn his quirks and watch him run.
Coming right after Christmas, after camping trips and bee stings, falling into family was a crazy January. I wasn’t on my A-game (and I’m not sure I have been in a number of months?). But I guess that isn’t where the best things happen! We had fun.
I met them both in Bangkok, and we flew back to Mae Sot together. We made the most of our little border town.
Apparently my love of air hockey runs in the family 🤷🏼♀️
We visited Chiang Mai for a bit more fun.
The Sticky Waterfalls were way cooler than I even imagined and so much fun to climb.
Oak did amazing climbing up nearly all of it, but he was pretty cold by the end and a bit less excited than the rest of us!
And if you know Oak, you know we had to visit the elephants 🥰
This was the best Escape Room game we’ve played yet, and we did AMAZING! We got the best score, finishing in thirteen minutes under the best time.
(A couple of us are a little competitive. We were pretty proud of this. And had fun.)
One of Oak’s favorite books is Stuck, and Aunt Keri did a live performance at one of our evenings out, using the table flowers as a tree. It was one of my favorite moments.
There’s a Bra Museum & Outlet & Salad Bar & Bistro along the highway… ?!?!
Go ahead and read that again: Bra Museum + Outlet + Salad Bar + Bistro. I’m not sure there is a better time to stop than with your sisters!
We made our way to Sukhothai, one of the historical kingdoms of Thailand, to enjoy some biking and seeing historical ruins.
And then we saw them off the airport, with tears and thankfulness.
