Kelsie, our youngest daughter, graduated Friday night. The weather was perfect and the ceremony was beautiful.
Here they are proceeding in...Kelsie is the last of these 3 girls on the right.
She was very excited. Her smile couldn't get any bigger.
Here she is with Courtland, our oldest daughter Courtney's boyfriend.
This has to be my favorite picture of the 2 girls.
We're so proud of her!
Then right after the ceremony everyone changed clothes and we were bused to the All Night (and I mean ALL NIGHT) Graduation Party.
First an all you can eat Luau...
dancing to the DJ.
Then real Luau dancers...
Then on to Paint Ball (sorry no pictures of that) and a huge tent with a DJ and a foam machine and more all you can eat food.
The foam just poured out of the ceiling for 2 straight hours!
This was the kid's favorite!
Then an unbelievable show with an illusionist/mind bender. He did the most amazing tricks. The kids were stunned. This man was wonderful...he had to be. He needed to keep all of us awake. At this point it was 3:00 am. They were passing out bags of candy for the show. I guess we needed a sugar rush.
Next was a huge carnival with a pizza bar, ice cream, popcorn, games, prizes, moon bouncers, basketball, dodge ball etc.
and then onto the swimming pool. I don't know how they did it. They were wide awake at 4:30 am.
Last was a bowling party with more food, Karaoke, balloon maker, fortune teller etc. By this time it was about 5:30 and they were pooped.
This was a wonderful night. There were over 180 kids and we did not have to speak to anyone or have any issues the whole night. They were so great. We were all exhausted the next day, but we'll have those memories forever. The most important thing was they were all together in a very safe environment!
Thanks for letting me share these with you,
