the best of 2009 - challenge #1

I thought it'd be fun to reflect on the past year by joining in on "the best of 2009 blog challenge." I'm excited. It will at least give me something to write about every day. Feel free to join in on the fun. :)

Challenge #1 - What was your best trip in 2009?
You all know the answer here. Sunset Beach. Actually, it's the entire trip to NC. I look forward to it all year round. From the moment it ends we begin planning it for the next year. There's nothing better than having the entire family together. It blows my mind to step back and see all of us with our own families and see how close we all still are. And that we all really, truly get along with each other's spouses. How often does that happen?? Seriously. We are incredibly lucky. (On a somewhat side note - if you happen to know or be a millionaire with money to burn, I could use about 7 plane tickets for next year. Thanks.)

Here are some shots from the best trip of 2009:

Me and Mandi on the birthday night. She is awesome and I adore her. Are our eyes the same color? Even better.

Max is so cute it makes me giggle like a nerd.

Fuzzy head? Check. Double chin? Check. An expression to die for? Check. Cutest picture ever? Check.

Quinn actually fell asleep in Zach's arms on the beach. This is not normal Quinn behavior. In this picture Zach is in complete heaven.

This is Team Cowan.

Notes for next year:
Don't leave your camera at home.
Take more pictures with sisters.
Take more pictures at the Sigg house.
Swim more.
Wear more ugly clothes to make Erin and Juli jealous. :)
