Jack's High School Graduation Party
With Jack's graduation from high school last weekend, we have been scrambling the last two weeks to get the house cleaned up and get everything organized for a graduation party. We spent Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend putting new plants in the front and the back.
Sharon arranged for the food to be catered by Rey Azteca, a local Mexican restaurant. Additionally, we picked up a couple of Mikuni platters.
We ended up with almost 60 people. Sharon had been asking Jack how many people he invited and never really got a straight answer. I was surprised how many of Jack's friends actually showed up. The kids started watching the Sharks versus the Penguins in game three of the NHL finals.
The party was scheduled to be from 4:00 pm to 8 pm. About 7:30 pm, most of the kids moved on to a party at Sam Cook's house. To my surprise, we had a hard core group of people settle in on the deck and stay until after 10:30 pm.
Both Sharon and I were very pleased with how the party came off. It was a great celebration of Jack's graduation!
