On Saturday, May 15th, Tom and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary and we also celebrated my sweet son-in-law, Thomas' graduation from college. We went to visit Lauren and Thomas for the weekend and had the most fun being together. I got my pictures loaded in backwards, but what else is new? We will start with pictures from Saturday night and go back to Friday. Sorry!
Here is my delicious dinner that night after graduation. I had filet medallions with mashed potatoes and we also ordered lots of other yummy sides to share, but I forgot to take pictures of those.
Adelaide and Lauren were looking as beautiful as ever! I am so proud of my two girls. They are the joy of my life!!!
Heading into the restaurant. Lauren, Adelaide, Tom(my husband in the pink shirt), Brent(Thomas' brother in the blue shirt).
Del Frisco's is the restaurant where we ate after graduation and it was so good!!! The service was excellent and we had a wonderful time celebrating Thomas! After dinner us gals dashed over to Belk to take advantage of a Lilly sale and we all got some new Lilly clothes for summer. We only had about 40 minutes to shop, but we didn't let that stop us from doing some damage. We all managed to pick out some great new outfits! What fun!!!
My sweet family. Us girls all wore our Lilly dresses for the graduation. In case you haven't noticed by now... we love Lilly.
Lauren and Adelaide!
Lauren and Thomas. Don't they make a cute couple? They just recently celebrated their 3 year wedding anniversary on May 5th! I can't believe that they have already been married for 3 years.
Another shot of us with Thomas. We are so proud of him. He worked full time and finished his college education.

Thomas is so thrilled to be finished!

That is Thomas shaking the chancellor's hand on the screen.
I just had to include this picture. On the morning of graduation, Lauren and I got up and took our showers to get ready to leave and we both came out wearing the same Lilly dress. It was so funny!!! Since I did not bring many clothes, Lauren changed and I wore the blue dress to graduation.
Our family loves sweets, so needless to say, we had to have a special cake for our special guy, Thomas, for his graduation . This cake had fresh strawberries in the buttercream icing between the layers and it was delicious!!!!
On Friday night we celebrated at another great restaurant called Firebirds. It is Lauren and Thomas' favorite restaurant for hamburgers. We had to wait at the bar until our table was ready. I can't believe it, but Adelaide is now 21 and can join us at the bar.
The happy couple... Lauren and Thomas!
Thomas, Lauren, Tom and Adelaide. I am so blessed to have such a great family. Love you guys!!!
Isn't this neat? This is a huge glass jar of pineapple slices at the bar. They soak these in liquor for 21 days and put the slices in drinks that people order. It looked so pretty sitting on the end of the bar.
I did not get pictures on Sunday morning, since most of us were still in our pajamas, but Lauren and Thomas treated everyone to a delicious breakfast at their house. They fixed eggs benedict and Lauren made her famous Hollandaise sauce, which was awesome!!! I had gotten fresh strawberries at the farmer's market, so we had those too. It was sooooooo good!!!
As you can see, we had the best time being together last weekend and celebrating our anniversary, as well as Thomas' graduation from college. I love my time with my family and making memories together.
