These photos are from the 4th day of Hannah's first visit! :D We went to my partner's parent's house as has been my habit for years. I can't think of a close friend (whom I've met in person) that hasn't met them. Before I dated my partner, his sister Rebecca and I were inseparable -- his family have been a big part of my life since I was 15. Less now than before, but that's to be expected I suppose, since I no longer have a need to be parented. Still, I take my friends to meet them because they're awesome and so are my friends. :D Unfortunately Mr. Ben and Miss Kathleen were off having a date weekend (necessary when you have so many kids!), so they didn't get to meet her but elya, Natty, and JJ did. Hannah said the atmosphere of their house was so warm and welcoming. :D
Hannah proves she can touch the ceiling too

we're playing wise and otherwise
which is not as boring as all the sleepy people make it look!

my partner! awwww
me looking wicked with my lei >:-D
-- we had randomly found two lei at my partner's family's house and had made a game of trying to throw them over each other's heads. Everyone else was all wtf? but we thought it was HYSTERICAL and laughed 'til we cried!
Then we went to the FAIR!!! (in my tiny town, crazy!) which we had miraculously noticed on the very last day they were in town, and decided to go to! I had never been to a fair before (seriously!) so it was especially exciting for me. :D ohhh I loved it! I was soooo thrilled and amazed that God/dess had arranged it for us :D
at the fair! excited Hannah!
Hannah is a little weirded out that I'm being Miss Clicky-click
and now she's pulling the "omg that's enough photos" face
you did *not* just make me giggle
me consuming giant pixy stix!
