Surprise Weekend!!

This past weekend I drove up to Virginia to see my brother. My sister, Lisa and sister-in-law Rachel were in on a surprise. We knew that my Dad was flying in Thursday night to surprise my brother. Lisa and I were on the phone when my Dad knocked on the door and what an awesome reaction we heard from our brother.

I got there Friday afternoon and we had a fun weekend of hanging out and racing. My Dad and brother got to race together for the first time and it was great!! We also got to go to the Homecoming Football game at my niece's HS, she does color guard and it was really cool. 

Probably one of the greatest moments of the weekend was when my Dad was reunited with one of his brothers after 15 years. Tears were flowing and it was just so wonderful to see them together again. It was a great weekend. Here are a few pictures:

I also have to share these two wonderful pictures of my sister and her family. Lisa, Kylie, and Grayson were able to go to Phoenix to see Chris while he was working at the race:

 Proud parents and their babies!!!

These next few weeks are going to be super busy for me. I have so many obligations with the FRG going on that everyday I have either a meeting, planning event or actual event. I am loving every second of it!!!

I hope you all are having an awesome week so far!!!


  1. What sweet family time! So happy for your dad!

  2. That's a great reuniting!!! Glad your dad was able to have time well spent with his brother & his son! Glad you are staying busy during this deployment:)
