Annalisse's FHS graduation was June 20. Annalisse's grad party was July 20. One super, super busy month. A month that included the kids going to work at their camp jobs and our trip to LV, topped off by several days of intense prep and set up (which we could not have accomplished without the help of our awesome neighbor, Morey, and the fact that Mark was home on Thursday and Friday to get the outside ready) for an outdoor grad party on a day that called for rain. Whew.
Well, the party was this past Saturday and everything was perfect! My trusty iPhone told me that the rain would clear by 1pm, just in time for the 2pm party start time. When it was still raining at 1pm I did not panic but remained faithful to my trusty Weather App. By 1:30 the skies had cleared and the sun was peaking out, so we got to work cleaning off tables and putting the table cloths on. All was ready to go by 2 and the party began!
After dinner there was more hanging around and we started cleaning up around 7pm. After that we built a bonfire on the patio and relaxed until we headed into the house for the night.
It was wonderful having a lot of our family and friends there to share the day, and I think Annalisse had a great time, which is one of the most important things. Another important milestone has passed and I'm looking forward to slowing down and having a low-to-no pressure rest of the summer!!
