Well, she built a cat, not a bear. But it was so nice to be able to be Auntie Somi for Kayln for her birthday. She's pretty much been reminding me of this trip since October of last year... and I hear it every week!
Truthfully, I've been looking forward to it almost as much. And how could you not with her being SO excited about it! There are times when you just feel like it's totally worth it, despite the expense.
