after his diploma... the party!

I had the theme of Cam's graduation party all set... I had been dreaming it up since the last graduation party we threw: LEGOs... Building on a Future.  He was excited about it until the first week in May, when he asked can we just not have a theme? 

Ahem. Really? 

Auntie Tina was just as stunned, and we set to work trying to come up with a no-theme-theme. We decided on school colors and a couple of sayings that fit Camden's adventurous soul...




We did not go hungry! Pulled pork, corn on the cob, a mashed potato bar, make-your-own sundaes & red velvet cupcakes!

We loved turning the house into party central... but what is a party without people?  We sure didn't have to find out! On the invitation I had set the hours as 3-8, thinking people would come and go and we'd have time to sit and enjoy our out of town family, too. Well, the first person showed up at 2:30, and the last family left just after 9pm. Cam had friends and teachers come- which thrilled me! And we had all of our family, even from Texas and Virginia... as well as countless friends, who we consider to be our family. 

It was a beautiful, beautiful day... 
we were so thankful for the love shown to our family by celebrating our son!

What I've been waiting for! No theme?! You and Tina did a fabulous job with no theme. (I'm glad the Lego scene made the final cut, though.) The food sounds yummy. And look at all the family and friends! Cam's a popular guy and for good reason. Praying while you pack him up and move him to college. Hugs, hugs, and more hugs, sweet friend!
