Home

We had a really nice trip - my parents spoiled us! But it's also nice to be back home. Our cats went a little crazy when we got back last night. Darth Weasel is a saint for taking such good care of them. In fact, my plants seem to be happier under his care!

Mr. RK took hundreds of pictures (I kid you not) that we have not gone through yet, but I only took a handful in comparison.

Highlights:

My "little" brother is now (barely) taller than me. This thrilled him, of course...although I don't know how we pried him away from his computer to stand back to back with me.


Mr. RK's engineering skills came in handy with an impossible-to-put-together play set my little sister got...

She calls Mr. RK her "big-brother-in-law." Is that adorable or what?

And my other little brother, at age 31, still can't pose seriously for a picture...


But that's sort of a temptation for most of us...

Awww. The smooch picture is sweet. And I laughed out loud at your brother's mock-serious pose. Love it.

posing seriously for pictures might be the single most over-rated skill in history....

Riot Kitty said...

FB: He has never been able to take a picture without being ridiculous...sometimes we call him Ridiculous Nicholas.

RA: Thanks!
S: Thanks and I will post some soon!

I'm so glad you had lovely family time. I can see some of the great artwork you were talking about behind Blake - pretty cool. Great family photos!

Claire said...

Sounds like a great trip! :)

And?

Is that a squiggly line tat on your upper arm in that last lovely picture of you?

BTW: my word verify is "recoadju". Not sure what to make out of that one.

And its pretty sad when your younger brother is taller than you. :D

Your little brother looks like the boy that played in the movie THE BLACK STALLION.

Your other little brother looks like a star of one of Quentin Tarantino's movies -- the gorgeous bad guy.

You and Mr.RK need to reserve your passion for private.

I would have sworn I already posted a comment here. Guess I'm really losing it.

Looks like fun!

Riot Kitty said...

L: Thanks!
C: It was!
G: And what? Yes, that is one of my tattoos. And yes, it's pretty sad, but I'm 5'3", so I knew it would happen someday :)
GA: You can blame my stepmom...she said, "Smooch!" So we did ;)
MZ: It was!

Great pics! You and Mr. RK look adorable in the last photo. (That is Mr. RK with you, isn't it??) ;)

I also love how your little sister calls Mr. RK her "big-brother-in-law." Awww.

Glad you had fun w/ your family...I did, too (as you know).

PS - I'll invite you when I serve "Arroz con Cinderella!" ;)

LL Cool Joe said...

I didn't recognise you in the last photo and wondered who Mr RK was snogging!

Ok so I recognised your husband and not you, what does that say about me? Ok don't answer that!

Nice laptop!

Riot Kitty said...

Ily: No, it's his evil twin, Robert Tres ;)
Joey: LOL! I don't look much like myself in pictures actually.

Holland said...

I so agree with your brother... not to pose seriously in front of the camera... lol
