So my brother graduated from college Saturday
I feel like this makes me old
This is us four years ago
sidenote: my hair is long - wow
Isn't my brother cute?!?
So to celebrate his big day, we through an awesome luau
He is a BIG Jimmy Buffet fan, so it was only fitting
Setting up for the partay
Parties are work
I think I forget this every time
Selective memory, I suppose
Even Mattie was decked out in her luau gear
The floating candles didn't really work
Guess we should have thought to turn off the waterfall!
This cake was amazing
A local girl in Americus makes these, if you live in South Georgia and need a good cake
go to her!!!
Can you guess what the handcuffs and badge mean?
(they were made out of white chocolate - T ate the badge)
Chris is going to be a police officer - he starts the academy next week!
so, so proud of him!
We had lots of food
BBQ and Brunswick Stew were the main features
and of course, the cake
Everyone gathered around the fire pit once the sun went down
It's still just a tad chilly here at night
The tiki torches and pool lights made for a beautiful background
One of the party guest passed out early
My brother's GF has a cute, cute new puppy
The party was so fun
I'm so happy for and proud of my (little) brother!
In other news
we went down to the lake Sunday to visit the ducks
this is their new home
Can you believe how much they have grown in just two week?!?
Hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day and great Derby weekend!
