Mary's Graduation

Yesterday, Stella took her first road trip ... 5 hours in the car to S FL for Mary's graduation. She was thrilled with Mary's place ... 3 levels of stairs. She had never seen a balcony but loved it!

I think Stella likes sleepovers!

In the afternoon, we headed to the Bank Atlantic Center for Mary's graduation. She got a Master's Degree from Nova University.

This is the arena where the Florida Panthers play.

It was packed with 1200 Master & Doctorate graduates & their guests.

After the ceremony, we went to MJ & Charlie's house for a party.

Charlie took this photo of Rosie, Barbara, Randy, Judy, Carolyn, Elsa, MJ & me posing with the graduate.

Rosie holds up the back of Mary's gown, so she looks naked. Since Nova's mascot is a shark, there was a dorsal fin on the back.

Charlie made delicious garlic bread, salad & lasagne.

Then a major hail storm hit Weston while we were at MJ & Charlie's house. Golf ball size hail & 64 mph winds. Their patio furniture ended up in the pool & their canoe flew thru the neighbors fence. While it was all going on, Charlie closed the hurricane shutters. It was a CRAZY storm!

After we got back to Mary's place, she thought Stella would want to try on her graduation cap. Unfortunately, she was wrong.
