Wore Out.....

Hello, my friends!  Yes, I know it's been awhile!  What a month we've had!  Here is a photo recap of what we've been up to...
Becky's graduation from Arizona State University. 
High School graduation for Katy.

500+ students on the field.  Fortunately Katy was wearing red shoes so we spent our time looking for her red shoes amongst all of the blue and gold.  Please forgive my photo (non)skills.  I messed up the settings on my camera and almost all of them are blurry.  Don't judge....lol.

This was especially hard to capture but they were throwing all sorts of blow up beach balls, a whale, a pink flamingo and atleast one rubber chicken.  It was funny to see each new thing being tossed around. 
The ceremony ended with a fireworks show.
We hosted a combined party for both girls graduations.  Becky also celebrated her 22nd birthday on Katy's graduation night. 
I found a fun idea to use in place of a relish tray on Pinterest!  Unfortunately the link attached to it was broken so I can't tell you exactly where it came from.  Love the idea of veggies in clear glass! 
The party ended up going well.  The menu was simple.  We ordered bbq beef from a local restaurant.  I made bbq beans and cole slaw to go with it.  Added in chips, veggies, dip and grad cupcakes. I think I am much better at planning parties than hosting them.  Worrying is one of my "gifts".  At one point during the party, I looked out my kitchen window and the back yard was full of people, all of them visiting, all seeming to have a good time.  Guess that's what it's all about.  :)

In summary....

‎2 weeks, 5 visits to the airport, 1 college graduation, 1 high school graduation, 1 birthday, 1 party hosted, 1 party attended, much visiting, lots of family and friends, much joy, wore out.....

Stay tuned....I'm hoping to be back in the saddle again soon.....

Boy, you have been busy. Two graduations so close together. Now you can sit back, take a deep breath, and relax. Or can you ;-)?

Knowing you Marlene, you will be doing more activities soon. I can't see you sitting still too long! LOL I love the relish tray idea! Pinterest gives me a lot of ideas too. I think I am addicted to it!

Oh my, and I thought I was SO busy getting ready for my son's HS graduation. Looks like you had a wonderful celebration(s). Love how you served your veggies, I'm definitely stealing that for our next party.

I'm beat! Between trying to get the outside and inside of our home up to speed and the cooking, I'm just beat! Thank goodness for summer break!
