// memorial weekend w/ the whole gang \\

Since I graduated on the Thursday before memorial day weekend and the whole family was coming into town it was the perfect time for a family trip to the lake.  It was so great.  We had all the cousins except one which is really great odds for us!  I am so thankful for the time we had together. 

All of the girl cousins receive handmade quilts from my nana when we graduate and I opened mine this past weekend and it is everything and more than I imagined! So beautiful!  This is one that her mom made years ago.  Many of the fabrics in the whole were old clothes of hers.  A gift I will treasure forever!

I also opened my senior scrapbook! My aunt has given each of us cousins that have graduated a scrapbook and needless to say I was so excited to get mine and look through it.  It is awesome.
 Aunt Becky you did a great job, I absolutely love it!!
  though it doesn't look that great, this is my papa making his famous fried chicken. 
holy moly this is the stuff of dreams.....once it is cooked that is
we played lots of games, card games, board games, and lots of games with this ball!!
 my papa is so proud of himself b/c he gave Conner a chicken leg
and to say the least Conner LOVED it
and the porch is the perfect gathering located! People just sorta migrate to the porch and so many great conversations have taken place on this porch!
 every sunny moment was spent outside because much of the weekend was rainy
 nana throw us the most epic tea party ever! it was so fun!
 that is one tired, clean baby there!
 That moment in the middle of family pictures our dog, daisy, marches her self directly in front of us and just lays down.  I mean really it happened! 
and then she poses.... really daisy you can't be serious!!

This is so bittersweet!  I honestly am not sure I could be any happier to be done with high school but after thirteen years with these people I am so sad to see us all about to head in different directions.  
I am so very proud of our class, we have accomplished great things together and individually and I couldn't be prouder to be part of Trinity's class of 2015. 

Truly we were a great class!

The actual night of graduation was so fun and was the easiest part of the last two weeks! It was such a fun time to celebrate and be all together as a class one last time.  

I truly enjoyed every minute of it.
