Mixed Baggage

It has been an exciting, busy week - our oldest graduated from high school, we attended two graduation parties, enjoyed hosting family in from Seattle and seeing other family that was in town as well.  The days flew by in a blur but were so enjoyable - still trying to recover. . .
Linking to Paint Party Friday,
