And the prize goes sister Kara

If Romney and I were to give a prize to the person who has been our best and most frequent visitor over the years, the winner without comparison would be my sister Kara.

When we lived in Boston, she came to see us at least 7 times and having lived there 6+ years, that is an awesome record.  So many memories of our adventures as we explored Boston and New England involve Kara.

Some of our highlights include: lighthouses in Maine, roaming the streets of New York, experiencing what it feels like to be the last...literally the last patrons at the IKEA in New Jersey, Whale Watching in Glouster Mass, sweating bullets on a New York subway, purse shopping in Chinatown and most recently in Denver, running out of gas in the middle of nowhere on the drive from Dallas, Texas to Utah, and just this weekend, getting caught driving past the home of Jon Benet Ramsey in Boulder, CO.  Really, there are too many to list.

Kara came for a quick (too quick) trip to see us this weekend.  We had a great time.  We went to our ward's trunk or treat party, we carved pumpkins, we shopped at the outlet mall with Marisa, we enjoyed an evening in Colorado Springs with the Bentleys, explored the streets of Boulder, went trick or treating and then barely made her flight last night.  Whew, I am tired.  Thanks Kara for always being so supportive and willing to sit in the back seat surrounded by incessant nagging by the kids and movies that are turned up way too loud.

We are anxious for the next visit.  We love you Auntie Kara!!  Thanks for another round of great memories!!!


  1. Gee thanks Alecia! It is easy to make time to visit such a great sister and her amazing family! Just one of the perks of being an "always single" gal I suppose :).

    Love you guys!

  2. Oh and I love the ode to my many hair-dos and clothing styles in those pictures!
