May 2016 - Bethlehem PA, Harrisburg PA,

and Orlando FL

Rylea rehearsed for months and months after earning three parts in The Wizard of Oz.  Grandmama and Pop, and Grandmoms, came up from the Carolinas to see her performances and to catch some AAU basketball games.  For Memorial Day weekend we felt the best way to honor those who died fighting for our country was to celebrate life and take a trip to Disney World.

Grandmama and Pop came to visit for the first weekend of The Wizard of Oz.

Grandmoms came up to PA for the second weekend of The Wizard of Oz and was able to make it to James' AAU games in Harrisburg where in between games we took a tour of the PA State Capitol building.
