FC: NGA I - VI | 1988 - 2006
1: The NGA Story NGA (no guys allowed) sister vacations began in 1988 when the six Neuman sisters, Carol N and Mom spent a wild and wonderful long weekend in Edmonton, AB. Since then we have had many more NGAs together... with excessive amounts of love, laughter and alcohol involved !!

5: NGA I - EDMONTON October 1988 Our inaugural NGA was to the West Edmonton Mall on Thanksgiving weekend for shopping, shopping and more shopping. We had to find a destination that would allow ALL of us to drink, as Patti was a month away from being 'legal' in SK. Although we didn't take any pictures on this trip we had so much fun, it was decided to do this as often as possible (a monumental feat considering we have to plan around multiple family commitments). Some of our memories from this first NGA: -- Sending Mom to the door in her pink flowered housecoat every time the hotel manager came by with a noise complaint. -- Hogging 6 tables in the WEM food court because we did so much shopping. -- Having to do a shopping bag dump back at the hotel because we knew we couldn't fit all of us and our shopping into Carol N's car. -- Jo sitting on the bed and landing in the chips. -- Helping Patti purchase a new jacket - we called it "Trigger" when we discovered it was mustang leather. -- Laurie trying to stuff her huge-ass silk flower arrangement into the overhead bin on the plane.
