Whoo-Hoo! Time to Celebrate!

Four years of frustration, late nights, tired eyes, chewed fingernails 
deserves at least two days of celebration, don't you agree?
Here are a few moments I captured in my camera this past weekend as my middle son officially said 
good-bye to college life...

It was a blur, those four years...

The Eyes of Texas are upon you...

He's in there somewhere...

My parents were determined to be there...

The celebration continued the next day... 
a reception in the second oldest building on campus, overlooking the huge UT ceremony.
First, cake...

Rich, antique woodwork and cherubs... I'm in heaven!

I just really like this photo...

It's cool in black and white, too...

Heading out to the final ceremony in graduation garb...

Tom watching the festivities in air-conditioned comfort...

And the grand finale... I took lots of these...

Whew! What a send-off! 
Congratulations, again, Daniel! 


  1. OMG, Barbara, these are more than amazing. Most of them look like they should be published! I'm totally serious. Did you get a new lens? How did you accomplish such clarity and perfect lighting at night? You've blown me away, girl!!!!

    BTW...your Dad and Daniel look so alike in that photo!
