My baby sister and Stevie (surrogate brother) came down to visit this weekend. Tonight we hung out (made a jammie party out of it) and played pool, watched funny shows, and otherwise just hung out and chatted. It was lovely. I sure wish they lived closer.

Normally I am indifferent about my Forensics class, because, let's be honest, it is completely unneccesaary for me to take it. I will never be a crime scene analysis (you need a science degree, which I am not getting), and I will never work in law enforcement, so it is just a necessary evil that I tolerate.

Other times, it is freaking cool. Today in class we dusted for fingerprints, and used heated super glue to see latent prints. It was pretty freaking cool AND fun. Here are some pics:

Outside Babies.

Here are some pics of the kids outside this weekend. We were all very grateful for some nice weather, study time, and hanging out together.

Study time.

This is how Stu and I spent the first part of our day:

As a result of too much academia, we decided to end the day by taking the kids into the wilderness to go shoot the guns. We had a blast and the kids think they had even more fun than we did because they got to hang out in the truck, watching Open Season 2, and eating graham crackers, while Mom and Dad destroyed tin pots. :)
