Graduation weekend

Last weekend my neice graduated from high school. I don't even know how that's possible!! She was just a baby last week...where does the time go?

We drove to Houston on Friday after the kids got out of school (it was their last day and they got out early - very early). We decided to take the dog with us on this trip. She traveled like a champ, but who wouldn't with her plush accomodations?

I thought I was going to have to make Wyatt sit in the floor. I wasn't sure there was room for both of them in that seat and Daisy was being awfully good.

The graduation was on Saturday. I would show pictures but they're on my other camera (the one I got for Mother's Day. The one I'm not allowed to use.) Maybe I can get Dax to download them for me. :0)

Then Katie had her party on Sunday. Now that she's older I decided that she was ready to have a family heirloom passed on to her. Doesn't she look so happy and touched to receive it?

It's a candle, and that lovely candle has been a prized posession for many different people in our family through the years. It's truly cherished.

Okay, maybe heirloom is too strong a word. As are prized posession, and cherished. It's really an old Christmas candle that melted in the attic and now has a funky new shape. We really have passed it around for at least the last 15 years and the one with posession usually can't wait to get rid of it.
