The weekend was a good opportunity to meet up with all of my sister Jennefer's family. Erica, the first daughter, graduated from college some time ago, and got married in 2010. She and her husband Sean live in Bloomington, so it is not a long journey for them to come visit when everyone is in town. It was a warm day, but fortunately there was a breeze to keep it cool, although the breeze was at times swift, so many graduation caps went flying. We arrived early and staked out a spot in the stands where there was shade.
Erica and Sean
We were not at the best angle to actually see her receive her diploma.
The happy graduate!
Jim and Jennefer, the proud parents with their daughter.
At this time Sarah is just unsure what she wants to become when she grows up. She has become rather fond of and talented with fashion, hair styling and makeup. She was very encouraging to take advantage of my mop of hair, as well as to use her rather extensive makeup collection on both my face, and her Aunt Janet, who also was able to come for the graduation.
I don't normally wear makeup, except for very special occasions. I think she did a rather excellent job with the canvas that I was able to offer her. I teased Rich about hanging out with some strange woman, 'cuz it doesn't look like me!
There was a lot of picture taking over the weekend, as all of the Standlee girls were together, and for a happy event.
You can tell we are related!
It was really nice to see my sisters!
Three Hot Senioritas! Ok . . . Senoras!
Three Gals from Texas!
On Monday morning, we had a Sister Day, and went out for a pedicure, lunch, and then wrapped it up with ice cream. OK . . . whose foot is whose?
While we girls were bonding, Rich and Jim went to the Caterpillar Visitor's Center for a guy-appropriate day. They had fun with that . . . but no ice cream!
It was a really fun weekend to visit with my family, and to celebrate happy times!
Oh . . . and I had a birthday too! Yippeeee!
