Youngest Sibling Weekend was awesome

This weekend my youngest brother and my fiancee’s youngest sister (with her best friend) came up to see us at school. It was one of the most fun times I’ve had here at Cornell. I don’t think I have as much fun with too many other people as when I’m with my brothers. We’re usually on fire, just bouncing off each other’s jokes and references.

We went to the suspension bridge, a bridge over one of the gorges which happens to have been designed by a Cornell Civil Engineer. I don’t know if it was purposely made to do this, but the bridge shakes as people walk on it. The more people walking or jogging on the bridge, the more resonance. However, supposedly the calulations were done correctly so that the bridge would stay up. David went jumping and galloping along, without any fears. More typical of the first-time walker, Frances was a little hesitant to continue along the bridge when it began to shake. Once we got her on, however, she was joining along in the fun.

Saturday we went bowling at the Helen Newman lanes, it was the first time we’d been in such a long time. Most of our friends are usually too busy to bowl. Danielle was impressive at the end with three strikes in a row for her last frame!

We went to a chimes concert that wasn’t too bad, but was a bit of a dissapointment for Frances. Every song she requested was a duet and there was only one Chimes Master present. It was really cool to hear him play the theme to Disney’s Gummi Bears.

I hope we can all get together again in the future. I told Dina and Frances to come for Spring Break…but who wants snow instead of beaches?
