Hope was here for a week and then my sister, Laura, was here the week after. Their trips overlapped by a couple of days, which was a lot of fun. We went to Scrapfest at the Mall of America together and then went to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on the day that Hope left. Laura was here for the rest of the week, which included my birthday, a dinner with our cousins, some fall fun at the pumpkin patch and apple orchard with little Hans and some good crafty sister time together. I decided to use the book we made in Amy Tangerine's class at Scrapfest for a mini journal of the week Laura and Hans were here.
