Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.” Happy #NationalSiblingDay 🥳 from Ariel 🧜🏽‍♀️ and her favorite guppy Flounder. 🐠 😊 .

P.S. Isn’t this Flounder diy costume the cutest? Ha! Total fail after about 6 hrs. Painters tape started to come off every time I picked Lexi up and carried her in the park. 🤣 I tried! Super cute while it lasted. .
