It was a great weekend with family and friends! It was fun celebrating Ashley and her upcoming marriage. I think she got some much needed girl time and a break from wedding planning. Oh, and I can't believe I almost posted this with out including the highlight of the weekend! While dancing in the courtyard, two guys started having a dance off. Ashley decided to mimic one of the guys and it was hilarious! Check it out:
