Weekend Rewind

Little Moments Like This
I'm joining in on the fun with my friend Tami at Little Moments Like This to give a quick re-cap of my weekend...head on over to her blog and link-up to share yours...or just take a sneak peak at her adorable blog!!!

To say this weekend was special would be a total understatement.  My brother graduated from college this weekend...and not just any college....but MY college...my alma mater.  I always hoped he'd go there so you can imagine my delight when he told he me was headed that way but to be there this weekend brought back so many amazing memories and made me so proud...not just to be his sister but also to a James Madison University graduate (sorry, I know it may be too early to be all sappy).  Despite the rain (which was pretty heavy at times)...and yes, I of course, was totally unprepared and had no umbrella, the ceremony was well, a graduation ceremony - special thoughts and speaking points that evoke emotions by speakers and moments of "oh my goodness, is this ever going to end." Here it is in color:

Addie was pretty much over it at this point - Uncle B trying to cheer her up

the best shot we got of him graduating...holy people

my favorite shot of the day - my bro and dad post graduation
I'm very sad to admit that we did not get any family pictures....crazy, i know. I blame it on the rain (hahaha...yes, that is an 80s or maybe 90s song) and no wanting to do camera damage. Sunday we spent shopping for tile for our kitchen blackspash (which fingers crossed I think we were successful with) and flowers for all 8 zillion of my containers that I foolishly purchased 2 years ago when we finished our deck. So that's it...my weekend on rewind. Happy Monday!!!

Girl, I was totally sappy at my brothers graduation, too. We have the same alma mater as well :) now he is starting pt school and I'll probably be a hot mess at that graduation! Ha!

That's such a special moment! I guess I felt the same at my brother's grad and then med school grad. So proud to be there! I love that pic of Addie in the stroller and his attempts at making all ok.
