Flaherty Family Weekend of Fun

Two weekends back we celebrated a fun filled weekend of Flaherty Family! The Flaherty’s are the extended family on my mom’s side. We are all sorts of loud… excited…silly… crazy…full of opinions and with countless stories – that we like to repeat often!

Growing up as one of the more local families, I have been blessed with the gift of celebrating all occasions from baptisms to weddings together.
