Carrie's Graduation from High School! :)





      My brother and his wife came through from Florida on their way to Indiana for vacation. I am taking the pic.:) From left to right...my SIL Bonnie,behind her..Beau, then Robby, Jim and nearest to us..Tom and Bonnie's son Sam...my Nephew. :) My brother,Tom isn't in this pic.

                              Robby and Beau cooked the bbq chicken for us and it was delicious!

                                                    Family members and their friends.:)

                                                               More family members!

Our eldest Grand daughter ,Carrie graduated from High School Friday and it ended up being a wonderful celebration that took up most of the day. Robby,Liz,Melisa,Christy, Jimmy, Beau and I went to the ceremony to see her graduate.:)  Jim had to work.  Afterwards we were all instructed to exit to the garden area where we could locate our graduate. That was definitely NOT a well planned ordeal.LOL How hard do you think it would be to locate your loved one in a sea of graduation uniforms ,with all their loved ones trying to do the same as us....in a huge crowd? Thankfully she had a cell phone and we were able to tell her where we were while she was trying to tell us where she was.LOL We all headed back to our place to have a celebration cookout. The food and drink tables aren't showing in this set of pics. As you can see we had a great turn out.:) Where as..I promptly got the flu in the middle of the night and was sick all weekend. Happy it waited until after the celebration!:)

Thanks for stopping in and hope you say howdy before you leave.:)

Hugs,
Valinda

Yes, you posted some pics twice, hahaha. Who cares? It looks it has been a wonderful day and a very happy one.
Only bad thing is, that you caught the flu! Wishing you a quick recovery, cause with all those family gatherings of all kind you just don;t have time to be sick LOL!
Take care and beat that nasty flu!

You must be SO PROUD of Carrie, and what a blessing to have all these wonderful family and folks gathered at your place.
