A Bon Voyage Party

My sister Bethany and her friend Michelle are headed off on a European adventure! They leave this Tuesday and will be traveling for two-and-a-half months! I have to admit, I'm pretty jealous. But jealousy aside, on Sunday, Brian and I hosted a going-away party, thrown by Bethany's boyfriend Josh.Michelle and Bethany

Do you think there's any extra room in their suitcases? I'd love to tag along! What a great opportunity!
