REINNA'S LAST HURRAH!!!

The middle sister is getting married, so we threw her one last hurrah!!!
Reinna's last hurrah!
I made her a little poncho (and head band) so everyone we came in contact with would know. She is the bride after all and she must be distinct.

I left Glow with my parents as I pretended to be free as a bird with the rest of the ladies that afternoon. I wasn't free that long because I came back to feed. None of my babies ever did well with the bottle.

As we were going to the first destination, we asked Reinna, "If you could eat anything, what would it be?" In this order, she said, "Alligator, giraffe, and rattlesnake." Well, two out of three ain't bad right?!! Middle sister is the queen of eating the unusual (at least to us).
Reinna's last hurrah! Reinna's last hurrah!
What followed after lunch was a fun little scavenger hunt. Two teams, two cars, same list, ten dollars, and 45 minutes until we had to switch out the bride and another teammate. We wanted her to have fun with everyone, so we did a switch-a-roo in the middle. Then we had another 45 minutes until we had to meet at our final destination.

The list was filled of lots of embarrassing things for the bride to do (at least when she was on my team, I made her do them). She kissed strangers cheeks, rubbed their bellies, kiss their bald heads, got hugs, got phone numbers, kissed their muscles, kissed tattoos, and even serenaded a group of boys and so much more! Of course, the list also included items to get or to take pictures of. It was fun and we were all scurrying throughout the city.

At 4:05 we met again at a nearby park for the next phase of the adventure. The bride has always wanted to do a paint fight of sorts, but we did a little twist on her request. I remember a color fight Jordan did awhile ago and thought that would be the perfect thing to do. We first tallied to see which team got the most items, then we got ready for our fight. With all the holi colors scattered about like an easter egg hunt, we gave the winning team a 5 second head start and then we all went at it...

We all had so much fun and came home such a mess. Actually, all the girls went back home only to get dolled up to go back out for a fancy dinner and some dancing, but this mama washed up, fed her baby, and then made her way back home to her other little ladies and Ben.

It is so surreal for me as the older sister to comprehend that my little sister is actually getting married. I was glad we got to have this last special adventure for our sister before she gets hitched. I think we hit the spot with everything she wanted and we all had a grand time!

This next week is full of finalizing details and getting everything sorted out and organized. It will be a whirlwind of a week with family coming into town and all the preparations, but I can't wait for the culmination of everything at the wedding. Ahh! My little sister is getting married... crazy!!!
