Graduation Celebrations

Thursday was my cousin, J's, graduation. We have been celebrating for the last three days. The actual ceremony was Thursday night. J walked across the stage with 400+ of his closest friends. It was way different than my small graduating class of 95 back in the day. Here is J diploma in hand...
and here is little man sporting his tie... Friday night Nanna treated us to a great dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. We ate way too much and it was really good. C and AP were digging on the Banana Cream Pie cheesecake.
Then this morning C had another soccer game. It was his best one yet. He actually had a little play going and almost scored! But, this is still what he does the majority of the time...
After the game, we spent the day on aunt and uncle's boat. C is a little more afraid of the water this year than he was last year. He was not too sure about getting in the raft. He got in for just a few minutes, then requested to get back in the boat. He did like riding on J's shoulders. He said they were exploring the jungle... AP has no fear of the water and enjoyed chilling out with me in the raft.
Then tonight we all headed to a local Japanese Hibachi steakhouse for dinner. It was all fun and games until AP had the blow out of blow outs. Sorry if that grosses anyone out, but it is the truth. Let's just say we had to wipe down the high chair and strip her down. Somehow, the only change of clothes I had in the car were C's, so AP had to put on a big T-shirt of her 4yo brother's. That wouldn't be so bad, but we had to go into Kroger on the way home. I was a little embarassed, but what can you do, these things happen. The night ended with a great fireworks display that Nanna's boyfriend put together. He is a professional fireworks man. It was pretty impressive.

We know all too well about the blowouts! It happened to us on our first night with JJ. They sure make a mess for such little things!

Who is that handsome young man in the shirt and tie? Could it be Bonnie Prince Charlie?
