Siblings Weekend: To celebrate Leonard's 40th birthday (early), Rachel and I surprised him with a weekend visit over Memorial Day weekend. We made a big list of fun things to do and met him at breakfast (he thought he was meeting a friend) and made him pick everything he wanted to do and show us around the city.

Some of the fun things we did included the aerial tram and walking tour of Roosevelt Island, ferry to Long Island, The Play That Goes Wrong (SO FUNNY), cheesecake, Museum of the Moving Image, Socrates Sculpture Park, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, dinner at Craft, Guggenheim art museum, and lots more. It was a busy four days, but we had a great time. It was so fun to be together just the three of us, and loved just visiting with each other.

Bonus: One of my favorite memories from our sibling weekend in NYC. Rachel's hobby of taking 1 second videos from her travels led to my new hobby of ruining her videos (I'm the middle child, obviously). I stole her phone and made my own video, 45 seconds of me being annoying, ridiculous, or just laughing loudly in the background, cropped from her 4 minute video. And a few of the many she took from behind unsuspecting me. Sisters make the best Instagram husbands.

Bonus #2: Explaining "Instagram husband" to Leonard.

"Sass": Maggie starting using "air quotes" to sass me.

Me: Practice more piano
Maggie: What do you mean by "practice"?
Me: Did you brush your hair?
Maggie: Define "brush."

Etc. Anyway, I started pointing it out and imitating it, and completely ruined it as a method of sassing because now we are too busy laughing everything she does (or doesn't!) do it.
