Federico's Grad Party

We hosted a gathering of some of Federico's closest friends to celebrate his Graduation at the Firehouse Grill.

I never got to give him a kid's birthday party, so I made up for 17 years of treats!

Each place had a Cookie Pop:

After dinner, the kids feasted on Aztec and Mortarboard Graduation cookies and cupcakes:

While Federico and his friend were in a private room, Brad and I had dinner in the main part of the restaurant until dessert.

I made a brief "speech" about our year and what great friends he has chosen.

LOTS of photos were taken, and everyone enjoyed the surprise "party favors": Federico Masks!

Jill:

Amazing, as always! What an incredible year you have had...I have loved reading about your adventures and all of the neat experiences you created for Federico. I am thinking about you and your family as his departure date gets closer. However, I know that you are not saying 'goodbye' but rather an easier 'see you later.'
