It was an early morning as his graduation as it started at 7:30...Riley didn't exactly want to sit still so we went up to the "cry room" and hung out with some other babies so we didn't disturb the ceremony!
It was a rigorous 5 weeks for him with all the classwork and studying he had to do and he along with all of his fellow flight members were ready to be done...a few had their cars loaded and hit the road as soon as graduation was over!
We didn't waste much time either and were on the road before lunch on our longest road trip with Riley and she did great! She started off with a nap and we stopped for a long lunch about 2 hours into the trip...she got to run around Target and let some energy out and then we had lunch at Moe's!
After that we only stopped one more time and made it to Lakeland, FL at about 9:30 that night...we did lose an hour on the trip so that didn't help! Riley took another nap, played, and watched several Veggie Tales movies!
All of Jason's family was waiting at G.G. and Pa's house to see us and at the time they were all strangers to Riley but she just made herself at home. She walked around saying hi to everyone, played with Joey the dog, and really took to Jason's little cousin Sarah!
We always look forward to G.G.'s cooking and she had a feast waiting for use when we arrived Friday night...yummy spaghetti! That was just the beginning of the wonderful home cooked meals!
