family time

let the festivities begin...

you have no idea how hard it was to get this boy to "dress up"
but i think he still enjoyed most of his night -- 
he definitely enjoyed the end of it,
the part where all of us went out to mexican
we like this particular venue because they are open late (as in we walked in the door at 9pm)
and we are almost always the only ones there (no-we've never gotten sick)
they have delicious salsa (we eat a lot of it)

it was good.  family is good.  having us all together (minus jordy's husband, ben) is good.
the loud, talk over each other, 5 conversations going on at once is good. 

i have to go clean my house now to make ready for the big after-grad lunch -- i have one hour.  yikes!

oh -- and i wanted to share this quote --  

"Up to a point a man's life is shaped by environment, heredity, and movements and changes in the world about him. Then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say, 'This I am today; that I will be tomorrow.'"

-- Louis L'Amour

p.s.s. - jon and i have both broken out the country music - let summer begin!
