Laura's Graduation

On Friday night my cousins came and made a pit stop at my condo on their way from Richmond to Atlanta.  Laura was on her way to graduate from Emory with her Doctorate!


My Dad flew down to meet up with Mom and I on Sunday.  She and I left Charlotte at an early hour on Sunday and got down to Atlanta just in time to grab him from the airport and check into the hotel.  Then we headed over to Laura and Carl's hotel and her parents (Uncle Mac and Aunt Susan) had just gotten there from Florida.  Uncle Mac is my Mom's brother....you'll see in the below pictures....

We had cocktail hour at their hotel and got to catch up....including time with a flying monkey toy that Amelia just loved.  Aunt Susan had gotten the idea of the toy from her recent trip to London.

 Then we all headed to Maggiano's for dinner.  Group picture!

My Mom and Amelia!

Monday morning started bright and early. 
 It did rain at the start but eventually stopped thankfully. 

We attended 5 different events for her graduation.  She was at the beginning of all of them because she was becoming a Doctor!

Laura, Carl and Amelia.  Soooo proud of Mommy!

I told you my Mom and Uncle Mac look just alike!

One of the events was a dedication of this exhibit from the past CEO of Coca Cola's wife in memory of her husband.  What a neat thing that was. 

And had to have another group photo with the graduate.  We are SO proud of her!  She's a smart cookie to say the least!

Of course she has already gotten a job at a college in Virginia as a professor!

Any school is lucky to have Laura!  And we're the lucky ones that get to call her family!

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special weekend Cuzzzzzz!
