We'll Remember Always - Graduation Day

For Woo Hoo Wednesday this week I just couldn't pass up the chance to share a little of Tanner's graduation with you. At my request, we took a picture of the four of us before leaving.

Do you kow how hard it is to get three men to take a picture?

The graduating class of Edmond North High School.
There were about 530 graduates!

These brothers love each other.

Great friends since 3rd grade.

Loving his graduation presents.

We had a big family gathering for most of the weekend.
The food was great and the company was even better.

For all of you who advised me to take Kleenex, you were so right! Graduation wasn't as bad as the Senior Recital on Sunday. Let me just say it was embarassing.

We are so proud of our sons!

Be sure to visit the other Woo Hoo Wednesday participants hosted by Marla at Always Nesting. You don't want to miss this party.

There are cupcakes!
