My husband and I just got home from a long weekend trip to North Carolina. We were excited to be there for his twin nephews’ high school graduation, and of course I had to take some snapshots after the ceremony was over. The sun was just setting behind me, and the light was b-e-a-u-tiful!
Our previous trip to NC was when S and J’s big brother graduated three years ago, and he was there to celebrate with them.
As long as we were in the neighborhood (so to speak), we drove about 40 minutes to visit one of my best friends from my hometown in Minnesota! Her husband grilled some chicken for our lunch, and then we took the kids outside for some portraits. The kids (and the husband!) were troopers, because it was H-O-T.
And finally, I couldn’t forget the families’ dogs! The kids’ dog is on the left, and the guy on the right belongs to the graduates.
It was a long drive, but totally worth it as we got to celebrate with family and catch up with old friends.
