The main reason for our nonstop hustle and bustle was due to having my sister and her man in town for two weeks! They took to the open road from California at the end of June and barreled down the highway to join us July 1st. In true 'don't waste a moment' fashion of our family, we hit the ground running.
Randomly enough, the first few days that they were here, my childhood best friend and her entire family were also in town (hi Tracy!!) so Afton, Rio and I took advantage of the timing to do some catching up with friends so close, I consider them family. It was wonderful.
While I'm not a shout-it-from the rooftops patriotic type gal, I sure do like dressing in themes so our little family went full throttle with some red, white, and blue goodness.
Every time my sis comes back home, it's always a good time but this go around was covered in extra special goodness. Like all sparkly and shit. :)
