Cupcake Royale used to have my favorite ice cream: Salted Caramel Cupcake. But now by some freaky turn of events I prefer cake over ice cream--I can't believe I just typed that. They were "sold out" of my fav so I mostly sat back to enjoy the girls enjoying their ice cream--they loved having three bowls and three cones in front of them. I loved sitting back watching through a lens. After we cleaned up, Annie walked past the jars of sprinkles right to the stacks of cones on the other side of the counter, which are conveniently placed at the exact level of little eyes and little hands. She didn't mind at all and grabbed a small stack! Then we ran out the door. On the way to the car I asked them if i could take their picture by the flowers to which they happily obliged (gasp!) and then had a ball cracking up at each other. I wish I would have kicked it into video mode because that laugh of Kate's - where she can't breathe - is one of the sweetest sounds this earth has ever known.
I am crazy about the photos of the girls cracking up so hard they couldn't stand up straight. Of course no one else knows what's funny! That is what sister life is all about--a lifetime of secrets that will never be shared. To watch these sisters strengthen a bond that will last into the eternities is happiness on the highest level.
