The Tradition Continues!

It seems like only yesterday (wink, wink) but it was actually 50 years ago that my husband graduated from the University of Florida and started the long line of Florida graduates to follow! We are a Gator family-and often bleed orange and blue. And so, it was with tremendous pride that we accepted the newest member of our family into the group. Our oldest grand daughter graduated this weekend-with high honors!

But, being true to her self, she chose not to walk. She is not one for ceremony and recognition-although I know she was proud of herself. She finished her BS in three years and is moving straight on to her masters and then everything else that will follow! I guess she figured she would spare us this ceremony as there are many more to come in her future until she has achieved her ultimate goal!

In any case, she did agree to some photo ops and then let us have a fun celebration at the new Depot Park in Gainesville.

This party was just what Hannah wanted-no frills or fluffs...just a day of family gathering and fun! And that is just what we had! It was hot for April but a nice breeze and some cloud cover kept it very enjoyable and then the water park was a lovely relief when the sun came out!

The humiliation this child puts up with when her Nana asks!

A great time was had by all and, as I have said so many times before, Hannah is the one who made us grand parents-and, it is a ride we have cherished for 21 years. All seven of our grand children are amazing. Their talents and honors abound. But, at the end of the day, it is the family love that keeps us going. And, our spring time celebrations are just beginning-so much more to come. Stay tuned.
