Cameron's College Graduation Party

Tonight we are going to Cameron's college graduation! We are so very proud of our son! Because he is leaving for eight weeks on an evangelistic tour with the college a few days after he graduates, we decided to have the party a few days before he actually graduated, so we had the party last Sunday afternoon. These are the pictures from his party.

We had BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs and I bought him a big celebration cake. My sister, Kelli brought a potato salad and my mother brought a yummy jello salad. I decorated the table with some bright fun graduation decorations and put a cute picture of him in a neat graduation frame. I also laid out his scrapbook from when he graduated from high school.

We had such a great time! It was one of those family parties that was so fun and after everyone left I had that warm glowy feeling.
We invited Cameron's friends and our immediate family. God blessed us with a beautiful sunny day.

Here's a picture of Cameron and his friends looking at his scrapbook that we put together when he graduated from high school. It is so fun to look at! Lisa is holding the book and Cameron's cousin Whitney is on the right of her in the green striped shirt.
My sister Kelli and our Daddy sitting in the sun visiting and waiting for the hamburgers to get ready!
Brittany and Kenzie sitting on the rocks eating their hamburgers. All that smoke is from Eric barbecuing the hamburgers and hot dogs!
All the cousins eating and giggling together!
Another shot of everyone eating. After they were done eating, they all played "Capture the Flag".
My sister Kathi and our Daddy eating their good hamburgers! When the kids were done playing Capture the Flag, we all went to the living room and played improv games. Cameron and Desi taught us these games and they were so fun! My two sisters, Kelli and Kathi, had to go up to the front and do a little skit. They both said "we're not funny" and "we're the unfunny group", but you should have seen them.......they were SO FUNNY and both of them are great actresses and made everyone laugh so hard! I loved it!
Here's Cameron and his best friends, Desi and Lisa. They met at the Bible college and hit it off right away. They call themselves the Triad! I thought it was quite appropriate to take a picture of them showing off their Superman rings that they got off the cake. Here's a picture of me and my wonderful son (I'm so blessed to have four of them). I can't believe that my little boy is so big now and graduating from college! I am a little sentimental and sad because he will be leaving on his tour in two days and I will miss him so much, but I am also so very proud that he will be doing the Lord's work.

"All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children's peace." Isaiah 54:13

Love, Sharon

Looks like a wonderful party. Glad you had such a great time. I'll be praying for your son as he is on his mission trip.

I also left you a comment on your guest room - I finally thought of a name when I was awake last night.

I know that your heart is just bursting with pride! To see your son finish college and know that he will be serving the Lord. I am so happy for you. My dad was just commenting that he wishes one of my boys would get into the ministry with him. He even tried to take Austin with him this time!
Congrats to Cameron!!!
