We had a fun little party here last Saturday celebrating my graduation. :)
The day started off perfect! I had already hung up mason jars along the fence line in our front yard and then Saturday morning I cut and tied burlap bows around all the jars. Which, speaking of the burlap: we were on our way to buying a few last things we needed just a day or two before the party. Burlap from Walmart was on the list. Well, we took a different road than we normally do to where we were headed and what do you know?!... a huge Mennonite garage sale! We "shopped" around there for awhile and got some super great deals. Including several YARDS of burlap for $1.00 (!!!), when I was about to get a couple tiny rolls from Walmart for close to $4.00 each. I was super excited, haha. :D Planning on tackling some of my burlap crafts I've been wanting to do here soon!
A bunch of wildflowers for each jar. :)
Haha, it was a scorcher, everyone except for a few little guys ^^ ate inside in the air conditioning. :)
I saw this really neat idea of filling up a wheelbarrow with ice and drinks. It's a great idea, except for when it's hot! We poured around 4 bags of ice in it and not a half hour later it was pop-in-water-in-the-wheelbarrow.
Little people chugging away!
Sunshine + smiles ...
... to pouring rain, getting soaked, but continuing to play + smiles!
Oh my goodness, the cuteness!! Joshua, Levi, and cousin Cameron!
"Thumbs up everyone!"
A friend had mentioned a couple days before the party that we should have a water fight, we didn't need to! We got soaked! ;)
Thank you to my photographer, Hannah, safe under this umbrella, for capturing us soaked and crazy volleyball players!! :)
We played Balderdash! Such a hilarious and fun game. :)
Thanks for coming y'all! :)
They're buds. :)
And then a few graduation pictures for y'all. :) I've been done with school for awhile but decided I wanted to pass the GED, so I did, and they have a graduation ceremony for all who have passed if they want to. So it was really neat and a special day!
Love my family!
What a little lady. :)
So glad a few of my extended family could make it down from Nebraska! Thank you and it was great seeing you guys! :)
