Wes' little sisters, Emilee and Lauren, were in a play, "Alice in Wonderland".
We love to go to plays, but being able to see someone we know in the play is a little less common for us. It was a real treat.

|Here they are together in this one. Sisters and best friends.|
I snuck up to the front of the stage to take some pictures (I didn't have my zooming lens as you can probably already tell), and the boy followed me up. They loved getting a little closer view of the whole thing.
My mother-in-law warned us about a two-hour long curtain call at the end, so we opted to take our extremely tired boys (It was one of those LONG, BUSY Saturdays) home to bed. There were many tears when they realized they wouldn't be able to play with Emilee and Lauren. So we decided to distract them with a little bit of hill-rolling and running races before we got into the car and headed home. They had a blast!
I'm glad we got the chance to watch Emilee and Lauren perform. We are so proud of them. They are such wonderful sisters and aunts and we feel so blessed to have them as a part of our family. The boys look up to them so much! I feel so grateful for their friendship to me and my boys, and even mroe grateful that the boys have such fabulous examples to follow.
