Granddaughter Kyra Anne graduated yesterday, so today we had a party! It was good to see so many people we had previously met. There were family members, people from both Zion and Salem churches where Todd has served, former neighbors, as well as many of the people that Kyra works with at the Croc Community Center pool. People started arriving a little after four and there were still a few there when we left about ten.
Of course, the grandparents - all six of them - were there early to help out. But, the biggest help was Great-Auntie Roxy. She was like the Energizer Bunny all day, preparing and serving food. Everyone pitched in to pull pork for the bbq sliders. There was coleslaw to go with, along with vegetable plates. Then there were miniature cream puffs with raspberries, blueberries and strawberries for dessert. Large containers of lemonade and ice tea completed the repast.
Great-grandaughter Kahlyn had a great time getting passed from one person to the next, and stuffing down bbq pork as fast as Grammy could feed it to her! Even with pretty little shoes on those busy feet, she kept us all on our toes keeping up with her!
Towards evening, Grandson Micah started a fire in the fire pit area and many of the younger guests started making S'mores. What a lovely way to end a lovely day!
