DeDe's Trip to Kentucky

On August 21st, I was FINALLY reunited with my brother & his family. It had been almost 2 years since I'd seen them. Sallie's birthday was the 25th, and her sister threw her a surprise Steelers party. Christy really went all out with the cake & decorations, and we all wore Black and Gold for the occasion. It was a blast...and not just because we went to the Buca (my favorite)! The next day was the Steelers/Bengals game, and we tailgated at the Pub. I was on cloud nine...until about midway through the 3rd quarter when the Steelers self-destructed. Still, it was nice to get to watch a game with Bryan...even if we were disgusted when it was over.

It was so hard to say goodbye to everyone. I miss them so much already. I really enjoyed the time I spent with Sallie & Christy. It was great getting to know them better. But, the plan is to meet again next summer at Steelers Women's Fantasy Camp. I'm already on a diet so I won't pass out on the field.

So, here are the pictures...

Here's Mackenzie eating "red chips" (because they come in a red bag)

Here are Sallie & Joe at dinner the night before her party

The decorations & cake. These photos don't do justice...

You guys all look so happy. It's great that you finally had the opportunity to get back to Kentucky. I miss you all so much. You are getting too skinny while I am turning into the Hindenburg (minus the flames). I'm jealous!
