Graduation Season, Part 1

May has been the month of graduations in my family.

Two weeks ago, my sister, Anna, graduated from Auburn
with a masters degree in counseling.

The kids and I headed to Auburn for the day
to celebrate with Anna.

Our first stop was lunch at Fuji, the best Japanese steakhouse ever. When Ryan and I lived in Auburn we went there so often that the waiters had our order memorized.

My first attempt at a cookie cake, my decorating skills could use some work, but the cookie was excellent!

After lunch, we dropped Aubrey off at my cousin's house for a nap, while Luke and I were at Anna's graduation.

I was a little nervous about taking a 2 year old to a graduation ceremony, but he was a trooper!

We did leave right after the master's part of the program was over, don't think Luke would have made it through all 2,000 of the Auburn graduates without a meltdown.

Before we left Auburn, we stopped by my cousin's house
to let the kids run around and play.

Happy Graduation Anna!

I know you have heard this a thousand times, but that is amazing how much your sister looks like you.

I love Audrey's outfit and bow!
