Thursday evening was Zack’s graduation ceremony but we still had the whole weekend with the grandparents to celebrate Zack. On Friday, my cousin, Kim, from Tampa drove over for the night and we all spent the whole, hot and sunny day floating around the pool together and enjoying some cool cocktails.
Zack requested Jucy Lucy burgers (a Minneapolis masterpiece) and french fries for his celebratory dinner #1.
After dinner, I presented him with his stack of congratulatory cards that have been arriving for the past few weeks and he ended up with a nice pile of cash and checks thanks to his generous relatives and friends. He plans to buy himself a new computer and then spend the rest on Publix fried chicken.
Then we all went next door to our neighbor’s house for a grad party since their daughter, Mckenzie also graduated high school this week.
Zack got a congratulatory hug from Mckenzie’s mom, Susan.
The adults all got congratulatory cocktails from Susan.
After visiting at the party for a while, we returned home to play some camp cards until Carl couldn’t take any more celebrating and we all went to bed.
On Saturday, we spent another day floating around the pool until Kim had to leave to return home and the rest of us went out for celebratory dinner #2 at Zack’s choice of Olive Garden.
That evening’s game was a complete round of dominoes for which I accumulated the massive amount of 495 points and sealed the position as worst domino score in my life.
On Sunday we had to say goodbye to my mom, Sandy. Carl’s parents are still here until tomorrow morning.
It was a really fun weekend with three out of four grandparents here to celebrate Zack. We are grateful that they all could come. It was a great time together!
