Little bit of lady time

I've been meaning to write this post for the last week but as you may have read I really haven't done a whole lot of anything!
Before all the shittiness started my 2 sisters, my niece and a good friend decided to have a girls night and went up to Duluth for a whole day and night without any kiddos or husbands.  I was a little apprehensive about leaving Mia.....it was the first time I've left her over night since she was born....actually it was the first time I had left her for more than a work day. 
It was much needed though and we had a blast. 
Duluth is an amazingly beautiful town on Lake Superior with so much fun shit to do and see.   
Instead of babbling too much I'll just share some photos and leave ya with that!!!
Me and my Beautiful Sisters!

Nat, Tammy, Deb, Me and B at the Glensheen Mansion.  Beautiful place with some incredible history and stories.  And I'm not exactly sure why I have my leg like that....apparently I think it might make me look thinner???  I'm just weird like that I guess!!

View from the back grounds of the mansion.  It was so fuckin hot in that place that I was this close to passing out during the tour.  I was about ready to take one of their fans and shove that shit down my pants!  Probably would have looked a little awkard though??!!!

Back grounds of the mansion over looking Lake Superior.  What an awesome view....the lake is really pretty too!!!
Big Sissy and I on the f'in bicycle built for 6!!!

Yeah...I know...asshats....so we rode this bitch around Canal park....only almost ran a couple of people over.  It was a hoot!!  Tour de France here we fuckin come!!!

Cocktailing and munchin at Grandma's out on the deck.  The weather was perfect and apparently so is she!

Got a burnt beak from just sitting outside drinking....go figure huh???  We all look a little chauched but we really weren't!

Love this picture of B....I can take some pretty good photos....she aint to bad to look at either!!!

We are looking a little scary here....sitting down on the rocks on Lake Superior.....now that I'm looking at this photo more I'm not really sure why I put this up....oh well....gotta take the good with the bad I guess!!  We are just looking a little homely??!!!

My graceful little sister sliding/falling down a giant rock!  There really isn't much more to say about this photo or her for that matter.  She is a special one of a kind gal!!!  Man do I love this girl though!!
We had a fabulous time, went to three too many casinos and lost more money than I would have liked but nonetheless it was such a great trip and so good to do something with the girls.  It's so necessary and I can't wait for us to do it again.  It was very good for my mental status!!!  We laughed a lot and did what girls/sisters are supposed to do when they go away with each other.....tackle each other and act like complete assholes because we can!!!!
