Weekend with my Cousins!  
I've been wanting to post these since my cousins Lindsey, Grace, and Lynnsey ( <lj user="addyislove"> ...well, you may not be blood, but you are my adopted cousin, Lynns) came to visit me a couple weekends ago. I FINALLY got the pictures from Lindsey's camera, and now you can see us miniature golfing. Or not. I'm not forcing you to look at these or anything. 

 Behold, the Amazing Robin! Nothing up my sleeve, folks. And, awww, my poor computer that is still at the Geek Squad (seriously, I am calling them tomorrow)

 The Lindsey/Lynnsey name twins. Boy, did that get confusing :)

 This is the very tacky chocolate champagne bottle that my grandpa and his wife sent me for Valentine's. Too bad the chocolate was nasty (our family is very picky when it comes to chocolate. Our parents once owned a peanut/candy store. No joke)

    Yay golf action shots! I'm doing my best Babe Ruth impression, haha.

 This would be cute if Grace wasn't making that face, haha.

 Aw, me and my cousins. Love!

 Oh, this is attractive. I think Grace is looking at my bum. 

 Ooo, look how close Lindsey got to the hole with one stroke!

 Ooo, look how close I got to the hole with one stroke! Oh, and by the way, the astroturf was sopping wet. Yeah, it would've been good to check that before I jumped on down. 

 Look, the back side of water! I don't know how this worked out, but everytime we took a shot of more than one person, it was Grace and me together, and then Lindsey and Lynnsey together. 

 See what I mean.

 My ball got stuck in the hole. Please ignore my roots. I'm getting my hair done tomorrow, I swear. 

 Lynnsey's hole-in-one! Woot!

 My creative golfing position. I kept hitting the ball into weird positions (dirty!), so I was to contort my body strangely in order to get it in the hole (dirty!)

 Last hole. Why yes, the people waiting behind us did appreciate our photo ops. ;)

 We're dorks...

 Lynnsey got 3rd place and Lindsey got 4th place. Close, but no cigar. 

 "We are the champions, my friends..." I got 1st place, Gracia got 2nd. I have absolutely no idea how I won. I am quite possibly the worst putter and I have terrible aim and judgment. Must've gotten lucky. 

 This is the face of someone who just realized that she was a felon. 


 After a Target run, we decided to dye hair. Well, not mine, obviously. There is a reason I get mine professionally done. But, for some reason, I have no qualms about dying someone else's hair. 

 This just makes me laugh. Look how much dye Lindsey got on Lynnsey's forehead. I was much neater with Grace's head. 

 Aw, look at my sleeping kitty!

Highlights:
1. I got to spend time with people I love (yes, I'm that corny)
2. A weekend of junk food and movies
3. Me attempting to introduce them to "That Thing You Do" but then I ended up being the only one who stayed awake for it.
4. The Baskin-Robbins lady's face when we asked her for a 3lb tub of chocolate chip ice cream.
5. Grace single-handedly finishing off the 3lb tub, plus half of the pint of rocky road. Dude, other people in the house.
6. Me being a blonde. After Lindsey and Lynnsey were talking about this story about a woman who slept with her dead husband in the same bed for days (and they literally meant slept...my mind was totally somewhere else), I asked, "How does that even work? I mean, what about BWANG! ::cue me holding up my finger::" Yeah, I'm an idiot. 
7. The fact that my sexy voice can get us free food (extra order of spaghetti and clam chower at BJ's and extra fries at Arby's)
8. Heather's face when she came home to a house full of people.
9. Lynnsey's petty crime. 
10. Moon sand!
11. The fact that I convinced Lynnsey to dye her hair a Lauren Graham-like color. I want to be daring enough to do that one of these days, but for now, I will use my power of persuasion (and apparently sexy voice) to convince people to try it out first. 
12. The fact that we had all these plans, but ended up not doing anything, haha. 
13. Hello Kitty Waffles!
14. Watching the GG episode where Lane dyes her hair purple while we dyed hair.

All in all, a grand ol' time for one and all.

Aw, it looks so fun! I wish I could hang out with my cousins, but they all live in the US. (Also, they're all old - the youngest one is over 30. Not that them being old makes them not fun, but it isn't quite the same thing, you know?) And mini golf - another thing the UK needs more of.

Hello Kitty Waffles!
Yay!

I grew up with my cousins (well, at least my cousins on my mom's side) only a couple miles away. Plus, our whole family is really close. We celebrate every holiday and birthday together, and I'm only 3 hours away so it's really easy for me to pop on home. I really hope I get to stay here for grad school because I would miss being in driving distance. I'm also the oldest grandchild on both sides of my family, so I'm the oldest cousin. Not sure how that one worked out, haha.

You honestly can't go wrong with mini golf. It's great entertainment.

AHAHAH!!! OH MAN!!! This is sahweet! LOL. I was waiting for this. LOL. I had a BLAST that weekend. And that picture of the side of my face with the dye everywhere, yea, very unattractive, but oh well. it was fun.

and hey, I finally got over my felony. I just had to sleep on it, and now, I tell everyone the story about how I got my fly eye sunglasses.

Lindsey Squared? FO SHIZZLE.

haha your captions are HILARIOUS.

Adopted cousin? LMFAO. Yea, basically.

I hope we can do this again sometime. It was ton of fun. The most fun I've had since Disneyland. Which, wasn't too long ago, but still. You know what I mean.

Oh, and i texted you saying i finished gilmore girls!!!! So depressing, but IM DONE!!!

Aw, I'm so proud that you finished GG. See, I told you that S7 was so much better than S6. I wonder if my friend, Gabby, finished S7 yet. Last I talked to her, she was suffering through S6. You totally have her beat too, since she started watching my DVDs during Christmas break.

That weekend was tons o' fun! I can't wait to do it again.

Hey, look at that, you CAN play sports after all!! Sounds like the perfect weekend. It's great that you're so close to your family. I happen to be as well. The pictures are hilarious and very creative - I give you an A+! :)

Yesssss!!! I love it when I get an A+!

I still don't know if I can actually play sports. This was probably a fluke.
