Graduation weekend over!

Granddaughter Amanda graduated from high school this past weekend.  A great reception party at their house followed, with a lot of relatives and friends.  It was a cool day, but at least there was NO rain!
Here are a few pictures of Amanda's day.
Amanda's name just called, waiting to walk across the stage to get her diploma.

With her friend Molly

Both grand kids!

All dressed up in cowboy boots!
Always will be a country girl.

Congratulations Amanda! and also to Leah and Steve for raising two wonderful grand kids.

My sister and hubby checking out all the displays Leah put up.  She decorated so cute, with pictures and posters that they had kept all throughout Amanda's school years.

There were pictures on each table, displayed in a big clothes pin.

Two bean bag games were set up, and the men gravitated to them for many games.
This is the game I make the bean bags for.

Daughter, hubby and pups made it here from Southern MN. 
Later a bunch of us ended up at the fire pit, and that lasted late into the night.
A fun day it was - it was a great party Leah and Steven.

Now I'm really feeling old!!!!   ha, ha!
Now another weekend coming up - hope summer gets here pretty soon.  We've had some nasty straight line winds and rain the last couple of days.  Some sunshine sure would help make the corn grow. 
Come on Sun!

Hugs to you all!

What a great time everyone seemed to be having. Congradulations to Amanda. It seems to have be the year for celebrations my Great Niece Samantha also leave school this month and goes to University in September. We don't seem to have quite as much party going over here although I know the young ones all went out together. (they had a kind of dressed up graduation "do" last year when most of her class left school, but she stayed on to do a 6th Form class.)
Hope your sun and rain comes soon.
Love Sybil xx
