no party like a {graduation} party

 
on sunday evening, our family hosted rachel's high school graduation party--a small, intimate affair for one hundred and twenty of our closest friends. there were hot dogs, there were hamburgers, there was a photobooth, someone brought pie, and, oh yeah, we all tore up the dance floor.

 
 
 
 
lots of our relatives and friends came into town to celebrate rachel surviving thirteen years of school, and we all enjoyed dressing up, chowing down on good food, and swinging the night away.
 
 
 
because we love photos and dressing up so much, we thought it only appropriate to host a photobooth. with ridiculous hats. and lots of cheesy friends hamming it up with the strangest faces.
 
 
 
 
 
and of course, since it was rachel's party, there was pie. lots and lots of pie.
 

 
 
after the food, photos, and a few short speeches by our dad and rachel, we turned on the lights and went crazy. cha-cha slide, cupid shuffle, frank sinatra, and even a few motown hits--it was a heck of a party. what a way to end this phase of life with a bang. and now, a new journey begins!
