Graduation party





Here are a few pictures from the graduation party last night. It was 111 degrees outside! So freaking hot! We fed a total of 50 people. I had enough food to feed way more than that. I know what we're eating for dinner tonight. :o) Brittany and I cooked and prepared food all day yesterday as well as cleaned house. Keeping all the salads and condiments in the baby pool filled with ice kept it all cold so nobody would get sick. The gianormous grill I made Mark get for me for mothers day. I love that thing, and since we cook big all the time it's nice to have. I want to thank all my family, Marks family, Brittany's family, Chad's friends, our good friends the Stokums and the Walkers for coming to help us celebrate this milestone in Chad and Brittany's life. It was a very fun evening! Today is my day to rest...and that is exactly what I plan to do!

While it was 111 degrees there it was 60 degrees and drizzly here in PA. We even wore our winter coats to my son's baseball games this weekend!

Big congratulations to the happy graduates - and to Mom for pulling off yet another successful gathering. I don't know how you do it - that Arizona heat must be good for you 'cause I start to wilt at 75 degrees!

Now that's a grill! I guess with that family you need it! 111 degrees is something I can't even imagine! Glad the party was a success!
