seth's last graduation post ~ i promise

Setting up. The sign on the barn was one of my favorite things about the decorations.
 It could be seen from the driveway as guests arrived and is still hanging on the barn. 
I am sure this will not be the last sign to hang on the barn.

 Ready and waiting.

87 friends and family 
38 pounds of pulled pork
144 servings of mac-n-cheese
76 servings beans
 2 1/2 gallons of coleslaw
many different desserts
5 gallons iced tea
8 gallons lemonade
10 gallons of water
It was a ton of fun...
and we're glad it's done!

It has been storming for two days. We went to church yesterday and now have done nothing but a minor amount of clean-up, movie watching and napping.

Thank you to those that have served our country and humble gratitude to the families whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice.
