last weekend i got the chance to go surprise my brother in kentucky for his 40th birthday.
my parents and my sister came too. so did my sis-in-law's side of the family.
it was one big deal!
we walked on a pedestrian bridge
(that's my sister and my nieces and nephew)
on this walk i realized i am even more unfit than i thought
we had a tea party with lovely china dishes
we ate tons of yummy food and even visited a local dessert shop where my sister ordered "fru-fru coffee" and my nieces ordered ice cream cones
i drank tons of tea because my throat was hurting so badly from allergies, but the good news is: i haven't gotten worse AND my sis-in-law gave me this cute mug to take home with me as a souvenir!
we surprised the pee out of my brother who didn't know we were coming... mad props to my sis-in-law for pulling it off!
kentucky was in full bloom, showing off for us texans who only have two seasons: hot and hotter
and my nieces sold mint at the golf course behind their house for golfers to take home and make mint juleps
--this is the life people
and i would now like to give a shout-out to the hubs: he braved four kids alone all weekend to let me go have some fun and while i was gone, he broke his hand, yet still managed to hold down the fort.
he's a keeper.
