Wordful Wednesday - Forrester Sister Date

hanging in the hot tub

Due to the difference in age between my mom and dad, and other marriages with the two, I'm sort of spread out in age with my siblings.  My sisters are 58, 56, and 52.  My half-brother is closer in age to me, only being a year and a half younger.

Sisters we'll always be...

I say all this because I'm very close with my sisters (two of them anyway) but I didn't grow up with them.  And now, being adults, we don't get a lot of together time.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we decided to fix that and have our own "Sister Date".  We booked a suite at the Stoney Creek Inn and had such a good time that we want to start making it an annual event.  

The "Sister Date" did include a husband and a 14 year old boy that stayed in the suite with us.  My oldest daughter and her husband also stopped by for a bit.  But the main focus was reminiscing and giggling with my two sissies.  

George pretended he was embarrassed by our actions, but he low-key liked it.

I had such a good time.  I laughed and laughed most of the night.  My gut hurt from laughing so hard.  We didn't act overly stupid.  I think it was just being able to be together and not act uptight.
Sandy and Traci brought 16 bottles of wine.  I'm not quite sure if they thought we were going to intoxicate the entire hotel but that's a lotta wine!  To be honest about it (if I must) the three of us went through seven bottles.  As you can guess, we were a little schnitzled by bedtime. #DontJudge

free coffee and water bar
(We needed it after all the wine we had!)

It was simply a hotel stay hanging with the sisters and other family, but it was hands-down one of the best times I've had.  Love the memories made.

Sounds like a fun time! I always enjoy spending time with my sisters too. :)
