Homecoming- Parent's Weekend...

We had a great day with the kids at parent's weekend. Both our daughters, Courtney and Kelsie and Courtney's boyfriend Courtland, all go to the same university. Perfect for us to visit everyone all in one day!

It was a beautiful fall, crisp and so sunny!

Fall festival with kettle corn (sweet and salty...yum)

Fresh pressed apple cider...

apple mash after the pressing.

Wood fired pizza was delicious...

That things cooks in minutes.

Don't forget the cotton candy. There was also fried dough, hot chocolate and caramel apples. Kelsie would kill me if I showed the picture of her eating the caramel apple lol.

Courtney and I eating the kettle corn...all stuck in our teeth, but smile any way.

Remember when I had mentioned Courtney colored her hair auburn...looks so cute on her. (that was the color of my mom's hair)

Kelsie and the dance team performed for everyone.

Ready to go...all smiles.

If I did that, I'd be in the hospital! Kelsie dances like it's second nature.

I could do this if they were lifting me with a crane! I don't know how she does it.

Went for a walk around campus.

The school is #1 in sailing...we don't sail. We don't do any outdoor sports, except eating at the Fall Festival, Lol !!

Laughing after several takes of my husband's eye closed or not smiling. I'm pinching his finger to make him laugh.

Too cute.

Crossing the bridge heading home. Thanks kids...we had a great day. Miss you already.

Thanks for letting me share,


  1. beautiful family. i do think.. seeing you raised in the air by a crane would be quite amusing ;-)

  2. Your family is lovely. I'm glad you had such a special day together! Looks a lot like my neck of the woods....south west coast of Canada....yes? no? Anywhere remotely near? :)

  3. Honestly, you're all too cute! Thanks for a snapshot of American life, which is very exotic to me. Question: whqt do they do with all that apple mash afterwards??

  4. Looks like you all had a grand time. It's been 10 years since my youngest graduated from college but remember "Parent's Weekend" and always how much fun it was to see my sons in their element at their respective boys didn't go to the same school and twice the dates overlapped. Lucky you get to see both your girls at the same time!!

  5. Looks like a beautiful campus. How lucky for you that they both go to the same school!!!

  6. Great photos of a fun day! I love Courtney's hair. There was a wood fired pizza guy at the farmer's market in Marina Park this summer. Yum!

  7. Great pictures Karen! You have a beautiful family!!!

  8. Such a pretty campus. What school is it?

  9. Oh, my, but don't your girls look like you! What a wonderful day for all of you!

  10. Beautiful family! Amazing pictures of your daughter defying gravity. How does she get her leg that high?!

  11. How fun! I like the outdoor activities you mentioned too--woodfired pizza sounds delicious! Lovely pics of you all.

  12. Aw, this made me tear up. My oldest is off at college--her first year...and mine, if you get my meaning! Two and half long hours away (I know--it could be worse). Glad you had such a wonderful day!

  13. I had a hard time telling which one was the daughter and which was the mom!!!
    And that is some campus! Mine wasn't like that!
    Looks like you had a great time. Made me smile. Thanks for sharing.
