GRADUATION PARTY

A lot of pics on this post...We had a great turn out of close friends and family. We had Michael's party at a brand new park that opened Memorial weekend...Everything was new and clean.
Some friends of Michael's, actually he and David the one in the striped shirt have been friends since 1st grade...
My Grandpa and I....Grandpa is 87 years old and doing wonderful...So blessed to have him...Grandpa is a giver and always like to make people laugh...Oh the stories he tells...
Michael and David playing corn hole.
I got a whole sheet cake...plus we had 80 cookies...Reminder only 1/2 sheet cake for Autumn...Well maybe...with her we could be inviting everyone she ever new....lol she is miss personality and don't know where to cut....But we have 3 years to figure this out.
My Aunt Alice...you got caught...luv this....She was my life saver when Michael was born and almost the only one I would leave my baby boy with...She would show up and take over...many nights rocking him and calming him from his colic!!!! U r the Best..
My Mom and Baby brother...My brother is like one of Michael's idol's he wants to be like his Uncle Joe and have what Uncle Joe has and Live like Uncle Joe lives and....well you get the point Uncle Joe can do know wrong in Michael's eyes...Love you Joey..
Girls my Autumn in the middle.
Sister and Brother....Boy do we look ornery...
sister in law and my nephew Tyler he will be 3 in August...Let's say he had to have slept very good that night...He ran and ran....loved the rain when it came...FULL OF ENERGY!!!!
So loving the look on Michael's face...Aunt Kelly made this gift for him, he saw one she had done for her father and wanted one so bad....So of course Aunt Kelly made him his STEELER collage..
PRICELESS....something he will have forever...that is Aunt Kelly and Uncle Mike behind Michael..Now Mike is like Uncle Joe to Michael...He really truly loves them and I so appreciate them for taking Michael under their wing...And for Kelly for all the help and preparing him for collage and studies....Love u both!!
Now on to Uncle Joe's gift for Michael...Now this all started before last Christmas, when Michael asked for a cross necklace for Christmas...My brother said I am going to take care of that for his Graduation if that's ok, I already have something planned. So here is Michael opening his gift. Love how Joey is looking at Michael..
Michael opened a gold chain necklace in the pic above...but wait Uncle Joe has something up his sleeve I mean in his pocket......look at Michael's face...
Joey hand a little wrapped gift to Michael....The seriousness on Joeys face and Michael is thinking this is a joke what is it...
IT was a gold cross my brother wore for the last 18 years, he past it on to Michael with a lot of love and memories...What an awesome gift with memories and a whole lot of love. Michael was in shock...he said I can't believe he gave me his Cross...Aunt Lori is putting it on the chain...I don't know if Michael will ever take it off.
This picture says it all.
My sweet precious dear friends of ours from PA...Thank you all so much for taking time to celebrate with us...
My Meghan...we will be going to her graduation in 2 weeks..love her so very much...
Autumn and her friends...I think the girls were checking out all the boy's that came and went...lol
And we ended the party a couple hours short with this and storms that came through, along with tornado watches...So we packed up..well the guys and Kelly packed up and alot headed to our house and finished up the celebration their..
I thank My Family and friends for coming and celebrating this time in our first born's life, as he ends one journey and moves on to his next...Love to you all...
