  7. Great prizes.

    I like hanging out with my sisters, just going out and exploring the city. It's more fun when we have no idea what we're planning on doing out, because then we're left surprised by what we're doing or where we find ourselves. And that allows us to laugh more, which is always fun.

    Well, "weekend from hell" sums it up.
