Hannah’s Graduation Party

Our family celebrated Hannah’s high school graduation, 18th birthday, and her and Josh’s engagement all in one day. Whew! It was such a fun celebration.

Also, Hannah’s decorating skills are on point. My parents’ backyard looked like a Pinterest board by the time she was done decorating.

Between Hannah’s friends, church family, and extended family from New York, my parents had 80 people at their house on Saturday. Though it was hot, humid, and stormy throughout the day, we didn’t let the weather stop us from having a great time.

Jimmy and I arrived a couple of hours early, and after I finished frosting cupcakes, I designated myself as the photographer for the day.

We ate Italian food, jumped on the trampoline, took turns holding babies, admired Hannah’s engagement ring, took a million pictures, and talked into the late evening.

I had a lot of extended family asking me to take their pictures, which made me so excited. My cousin had a baby in June, so I was beyond pumped to take her picture, feed her, and snuggle as much as possible.

The party ended with a bonfire and smore’s, the perfect ending to any party if you ask me 😉

All in all, it was a beautiful day full of spending time with loved ones and celebrating Hannah and the accomplishments she has achieved through Christ. Congrats, Hannah!

    1. It really was an awesome time! I still can’t believe there were 80 people there! I was so tired the next day from all the socializing, haha.
