unofficial start of summer and a walk down memory lane

I love summer...long days, muggy nights, campfires, roasting marshmallows (of course!), swimming til you're wrinkly like a prune, playing in the sprinkler, vacation, wearing your bathing suit all day...

Today marks the unofficial beginning of summer being Memorial Day. Carleigh still has two weeks of school left, so we'll still have an early bedtime for the next couple of weeks, but it's fun to celebrate all things summer today. We've had a lazy day so far. We're planning on having a fish fry this evening. I hope to make some lemonade to go along with it as well as some homemade fries, some salad and maybe a watermelon! YUM-O!

Our niece, Priscilla, graduated this weekend! (sniff, sniff) I. can't. believe. it! I remember getting the news of her arrival that cold December day! I remember the night she stayed the night with us and she could barely talk, and it took me forever to interpret "rotchu" in the middle of the night. Only after several minutes of crying and me asking her, "do you want me to rock you?" did I realize that's what she had been asking all along! I remember watching Barney with her and seeing her off to kindergarten in her cute little uniform skirt! I remember hearing her scream and giggle with her girlfriends and thinking they couldn't be any louder or more silly. Boy was I wrong! I remember watching her grow from a young girl with braces to a young lady...seeing her at Cotillion, getting her driver's license, and later watching her at Debutante Ball. She has grown up to be so beautiful...just like her mother...how we miss her so. I can just imagine her beaming with pride as her daughter walked across the stage to get her diploma...I know I was. Congratulations Priscilla!
