The GodSon Graduates

We spent this weekend in Minneapolis to celebrate the GodSon's Ed. S. graduation and to visit with family.  It had been a while since I went anywhere really.  The Wife has visited her parents at their home in Marshalltown and at their lake house a few times but I have stayed home with Iago.  This short two night car trip felt awesome to me.

The blue carnations give to the Ed S. graduates during the hooding ceremony.
Saturday morning was filled up with the hooding ceremony and the graduation.  After the festivities the Matron of Honor (MoH) and Best Man (BM) took us out to lunch.  The place they took us offered bacon flights i.e. sample size servings of bacon and various dipping sauces.  What's not to like about bacon and sauces?  A brilliant idea.

After lunch, and a ten minute nap at the MoH and BM's house, everyone started to show up.  This included the GodSon's and the Altar Boy's families.  In total eight adults and seven extremely well behaved children.

The day was rounded out with an afternoon of politics and bathroom talk punctuated by pizza and watermelon.  I do like our heated but friendly discussions when we get together.

Happy Graduation, GodSon!
