Hailey was super excited because she got to swim and see Grandaddy-Great and Grandma-Great all in one day!! Grandma-Great, Jack, and GrandmaDarren, Matt, and Tyler
Thursday we kind of had a little pizza party before we had to leave for the graduation. It started at 7pm, had to be there at 6, which meant we needed to leave around 5:30....so we ate early.Mom set this out for everyone to sign that hadn't already. This caricature was drawn by a guy at our church. He drew one for each of the graduates for the Senior dinner this year!
Hailey was getting some good Grandma-Great time in while we were waiting....Buzz Lightyear even made it to the party...Uncle Bubba must be pretty famous!Princess (my grandparent's dog) and Dudlee (my parent's dog) were hoping someone would drop a piece of pizza :-)The Dudlee just decided to revert to good ole begging (doesn't he look like a cat?!?)I guess Princess gave up and went to lay down...she's such a sweetie.Finally it was time to go!!! We drove out to Perry for the ceremony...The kids wanted to know if we were going to the fair...(that's where it is every October). Jack had missed Mr. Tom. They'd been gone a few days on a trip. Hailey really wanted to wear some of her hair clips but wanted to do them herself. I decided it wasn't something I wanted to battle...why not let her do her own hair every now and then?!?
Isn't it adorable?!? By the way...in the van, while she was working on this masterpiece she asked me to look...so I did and kind of started to laugh...she quickly informed me that it wasn't silly it was beautiful!! I'm terribly sorry, you're so very right! You should have seen some of the looks we were getting...but I could have cared less. She was happy so I was thrilled!We saw Bubba in the 'waiting' area when we walked in...
And here is Jack's : Scary...Sad...Happy...
Goofy Jack and Daddy!
More boring stuff....So we did stickers! Now it's Uncle Bubba's turn! We jumped, we shouted, and Adam blew the air horn!! It was great!
Now the 'formal' pic's

Jack, Adam, and Tyler....(Jack was being a crazy man!! He was so happy to be out of that auditorium!)
Everybody came back to my mom's for cake and icecream to celebrate! I'm so proud of you Tyler, we all knew you could do it!! I know you'll do great in whatever you decide to do in your future!
