surprise sister!

2 weekends ago I flew to Salt Lake to surprise my sister at her baby shower!

My mom picked me up at the airport and our first stop was Cafe Rio. I was in heaven.

Then we stopped by my dad's office to say hello and to hear about his campaign :) What a guy.

My mom and I ran some errands and then picked up the cake for the shower at my grandma's.
There was a ton of traffic and we were getting way stressed that we wouldn't get to the shower before ashley. As soon as we pulled into the driveway, I jumped out and ran inside right as Ash was driving down the street. My mom grabbed the giant box from the car (for me to hide in) and ran inside way fast. Ash was way confused as to why my mom was carrying such a large box and running inside. I hurried and jumped in the box (pulling a muscle in the process) seconds before she walked in the door.
She said hi to everyone... went into the bathroom and fixed her makeup... etc. Meanwhile I'm overheating in the box...  taking pictures of myself....and trying make my leg stop cramping.

 Ashley finally came into the room and my mom said that there was a gift she needed to open first. Ash let out the biggest scream as she was opening it. We had no idea it would be such a scary experience for her.

Such a fun shower with our cousins, aunts, and grandmas!

Ashley got a lot of amazing gifts! My mom found our favorite bedtime book from growing up: Hush Hush It's Sleepytime. So many memories :)

The rest of the weekend was spent shopping and eating. I'm so glad that Brad let Ashley stay in Salt Lake the whole weekend to play with me!

Ashley took this picture while we were shopping for shoes at DSW. i look totally miserable.

Another highlight was Saturday night when we couldn't decide where to go to dinner. So we went to Zupa's and then an hour later we picked up chinese food. Having two dinners is always a good idea!

Next up: Sean's farewell
