phew, we made it....

friday was graduation day. 
yay!!  woot, woot....

it began at 9:30 am..... graduation and awards ceremony.
it was such a relief to see bryce up there receiving his diploma..

then when that was all over...
i was hunting for bryce so i could take some pics, before he ripped off that gown...
but i was too late.

he agreed to put the hat on and take a few pics with his buddies though...

what an awesome day it was.
truly perfect.

bryce was soooo excited about everything.
he loves dressing up ... so that was a BIG highlight for him.

he also graduated with his cousin, jena...
so that was pretty special as well.
isn't she beautiful?  'sigh'

i love this pic of pg's son, bryce and another buddy.....
don't they look happy?  :)

so after the morning ceremony we went out for lunch.
then before long it was time to get dressed and ready for the dinner and what we call the grand march.

kay i know i'm bryce's mom.... but gosh he's soo darn handsome.

here's brett and his sweet girlfriend, alannah.
they were so happy for bryce. 
really heartwarming....

and jena looked amazing....
the only drawback of the day...
the mosquitoes...  sooo nasty!
but jena was a trooper....
smiling away while they buzzed around.

bryce and his date, shandra.
sooo beautiful.
i love this pic.....

bryce was really in his element.
he said he felt like james bond.
i thought he looked liked james bond in this pic. :)

and here's the brothers..... :)

a bond pose....

john thought it'd be fun to be silly in all his pics....
he was using the peace sign continually.
here's a more serious pose. :)

okay one final pic...
i think i took about 650 in total...
so it's hard not to share a bunch.

this is my fav of bryce.

soooo this is the end of the chapter.
tomorrow is a new monday... and truly a new beginning.

here's to making it...
to bright futures and dreams coming true.


i will be back with all kinds of news and goodness this week.

sooo exciting....

thanks again for all the well wishes, good cheer and prayers for bryce and for all of us.
what a blessing!!


just one more..... :)
does that face not say 'i made it'....
or what? :)

Fantastic photos, a lovely snapshot of your day. Graduation Day looks like fun. Congratulations to Bryce.

PS I think Bryce looks James Bond also.

Do you know the show Dr Who? It is very big here and has been for years and years. Bryce looks like the new Dr.

I imagine that graduation from HS is a very exciting time for everyone...congratulations on reaching this huge milestone!

And Bryce's vintage-style Nikes are the perfect balance to the formal wear. This element of fun, makes it fabulous.
