Erin graduated with honors! A great weekend in Chico celebrating her and her brother Brandt! Off to Carson City on Thursday, company is coming!

Love you Erin! So proud! 
She graduated Chico State with honors! 

Saturday morning we left here about 0815 and headed for Chico, CA. We took I 80 (which we don't like, but the fastest way). It was an ok drive with not a lot of traffic which was nice. The GPS got us there no problems and we rolled in right around 1315. 

Adam and Erin met us at the corner and guided us into the property. Perfect! 

Enjoying under the shade trees which are incredibly huge
and  beautiful! Our Mansion in the background, they rented
two trailers for family to stay in, along with some people
tented it! 

Sam and Piper's outdoor kitchen! 

Once we were parked we hugged them and were greeted with hugs by Erin's parents, Piper and Sam. Right away we felt like family! We went up to the party area and were greeted by a whole lot more of their family! Immediately asked if we wanted food, as they had just fed a whole lotta of people. Then Sam got us drinks and we proceeded to mingle and meet more of the Livernois Family!! 

Saturday's group and there were more on Sunday!

The party is all about Erin and Brandt! ๐Ÿ’™ 

Honestly I've never felt so comfortable with people I've never met. They are just a wonderful group we enjoyed getting to know! Some of us really mixed well! Family and friends from as far as Florida, Chicago, Texas, Arizona and Southern CA all came to celebrate Erin and her brother Brandt's graduation! He graduates June 15th, I believe he said. 

Saturday it was about 90 so we sat by they pool, while
some played in the pool..Adam and Erin ๐Ÿ’™

It was amazing to see the love between everyone. They accepted us as family too! 

We had an amazing day and evening. Sam cooked carne asada and carnitas tacos. YUM! 

Sunday morning I got up to "help" Uncle Joe fix breakfast for everyone, but he had it under control! I helped out where I could. 

Uncle Joe, creating his famous breakfast! 

Graduation started about 0900 so the kids and parents left pretty early. We finished up with breakfast and cleaned up before the caterer got there. 

About 1130 every one came back with big smiles on their faces. Sounds like graduation was awesome! 

Everyone visited for awhile and then the caterer came in and set up for Linner. It was great and everyone still was able to visit. 

Erin and her Aunts on her mom's side! 

Adam, Kate and Chandler. Friends from Georgetown when he was
in high school. Now they are in Sacramento and made the trip up
for the day to celebrate Erin! ๐Ÿ’–

I love this pic of Erin and her mom, Piper! 

Adam, Erin, Kate and Chandler ๐Ÿ’™

Erin and her friend Claire who flew in from Pensacola to 
celebrate Erin's graduation! ๐Ÿ’—

Around 1500 or so the band came in to get ready to play! 

Greatly enjoyed! Alot of dancing going on and good times!

Erin and her best friend Emily! ๐Ÿ’–

The party continued once they were gone, until when, I'm not sure.  I have to admit, I went into the Mansion to get drinks, came out and then ended up face first ๐Ÿ˜ž in the gravel. Oh well, I'm fine, more embarrassed than anything. 

Sunday morning, I got up and went outside to see what's going on. Several people were already out with their suitcases as they had planes to catch. A little breakfast and off they went. 

We were ready about 1000 to head home. The drive took about 7 hours this time. There was road construction on highway 20 and interstate 80 so we rolled in just about 1700. Happy Hour next door. 

Honestly, this is the best weekend we've had in forever. Never have we met such a family that had us feeling like family in just a few short minutes. Everyone accepted us immediately and we felt so at home! On top of that they all told us how much they love ADAM and how happy they are together! We couldn't be any more blessed with ERIN! Now we are blessed to have her family! ๐Ÿ’–

Erin sent me this picture from  Emily's wedding. Does this not say LOVE!? I so 
love this pic! 

Grand nephew's team won the SUPER
BOWL!! Congrats Owen! 

Allissa went fishing and out fished  Russell! LOL. I think
it's adorable that they go fishing together! ๐Ÿ’™


Monday morning we headed to Carson for Ken's echocardiogram. Got that done and then a quick trip to Walmart along with a trip to Lowe's. Thought we should start picking up on fireplace piping for Bryan and Cheryl. They had nothing, so we'll start looking on line and in other stores. October will be here before we know it!!
Thursday we're heading to Carson City to pick up groceries for the weekend as we've got company coming!! 

             Have a great evening everyone! Gotta love family! ๐Ÿ’—
