Back in August I took a solo trip to visit the fam on Ryan's turf in Reno. I haven't been to Reno in ages and it was nice to finally see Ryan in his world. The weekend was a blast. We were there during Hot August Nights, Reno's huge annual classic car show which is always a hit. Ryan took us to a local pizza joint, showed us his house and we met his puppy love, Ella. And you can't go to the desert in the summer without lounging poolside, so that's what we did, complete with Strawberitas! My dad taught me how to play Pai Gow poker (so cool that the dealer can help you and you get paid when another player wins!!), we filled up on a traditional casino buffet, and we were wowed by the $1 beers!! Sunday we went to a Reno Aces baseball game where we hooted and hollered and stuffed our faces with hot dogs and popcorn. It was a whirlwind weekend full of love, laughs, family, and awesome cars and I was so happy I was able to spend some quality time with my sister Cassie's lovely little family, brother Ryan, and Dad and Leslie!
