My sister & I had not seen each other in a long timeâ€¦ But despite the distance, we spoke oftenâ€¦ The two of us grew up as only kids to a single dad & were quite close.
But after school, I found labor in Santa Barbara, & she got married, however, despite our distance, we never lost touch, then last summer, her kids wanted to come down to Santa Barbara to collect; I had promised them over Christmas that I would show them a time of their lives if they ever managed to get to the city.
I had no choice however to pay our debt when our sister announced they were on their way. I only had a week to get our apartment to host about 5 people. The kids were so glad when they got to Santa Barbara, & so was our sister. I wanted her to kick her shoes off & relax while taking care of our nieces & nephews! My sister was determined to relax, so she went to a weed dispensary & got some tasty edibles, she knew pot is legal in the state of CA. My first afternoon with the kids was spent at the Santa Barbara Zoo. The zoo was set on 30 acres & quite compact, however we still got to see lots of exotic & local animals. The two of us had so several experiences, including feeding the giraffes, which was the highlight of their afternoon. In addition, we got to see odd animal species & take part in a guided tour. I never heard even once from our sister because she knew the kids would be fine. I laughed out loud, knowing she was genuinely dancing around the apartment with a wine glass in her hand.
