what's making me happy this week - 26 July 2015

Visiting my brother and his family in Dallas over the weekend. I haven't seen all of them since we all went on a cruise together a few years ago. I haven't seen my new niece (18 months old) at all.

We had a nice time. We didn't do a lot, mostly hung out together. That was great. The new niece is a hoot! She's a *massive* dinosaur fan, so I brought her a small set of plush dinosaurs with a carrying egg. We spent much time playing dinosaurs. By "Playing Dinosaurs" I mean she gave me a dinosaur and said "DINOSAUR!". And then we repeated that. A lot. We also played trucks and trains for a while. She's an active kid.

Also spent time with my niece and nephew who are 9 and 11. It was good to reconnect with them, they are fun and bright and cool. Also with my sister-in-law, who is a super-duper geek girl and great with the nerdy pop culture.

Overall, a wonderful visit and I look forward to seeing them again soon.
