Early Summer Happenings...

This summer got off to a busy start.  Before the kid's school year was even over, we went to Memphis for Brian Duley's graduation from the University of Memphis.  The graduation was postponed because the Grizzlies made it to the playoffs, so the crawfish boil came before the graduation ceremony.

 Hannah Duley loves crawfish, but she hasn't mastered the art of peeling them in an expedient manner! It takes her forever to pick the meat out!

 We also celebrated the end of the year at Excelsior.  The different classes made presentations of things they had learned during the year.

On Memorial day weekend, our annual trip to the river was postponed by a day.  The boys went on to the river with my parents, but the rest of us stayed behind, because Sydney Morris got married!  Hannah made mini poundcakes for the reception, and they were delicious!  
 Scott performed the ceremony, so Hannah, Sarah, and I sat together in the audience.  The wedding- ceremony, reception, everything- was probably my favorite wedding other than my own.  It was truly a celebration!  Scott did a great job, and it was a fun evening.  In fact, we stayed so late at the reception that we ended up waking up before dawn and heading to the river early Sunday morning.

When we arrived at the river, we had our usual fun swimming, boating, and riding on the screamer.   Of course good food under the pavillion and lots of soft drinks are always a sure thing...

 As well as naps in the afternoon...

 And I just love Adam's cheese...
