Anna's graduation party was the next morning. While the kids were near perfect at Patrick's party, they were a *bit* crazier at Anna's event. For some reason, P decided she needed to take this giant lizard (which belongs to Eli) to the party.
The party inside looked wonderful, with lots of yummy food!
Of couse, the lizard was fed well.
Anna decorated her own graduation gap, which was proudly on display
The next day was finally the big event. High School graduation!
Here she comes!
This pretty much sums up my behavior over the weekend. I am SO PROUD of Anna!
Eli looked thrilled
Look at P starting adoringly at her cousin. So sweet.
We got their early to get good seats, which left the kids plenty of time to explore the bleachers.
Quinn, of course, was primarily concerned with memorizing the program, and he was a perfect angel for the whole ceremony. The girls slept through most of it, but woke up in time to cheer for Patrick and Anna.
Patrick was first in line, which was very exciting for everyone. Both he and Anna got super-loud cheers from us, and the whole ceremony was quite nice.
Of course, being in Iowa, we celebrated after the event with Dairy Barn.
Congrats, guys. As Anna's cap says, "Adventure is out there!"
