Low Country Boil Dinner Celebration

We spent the weekend in Tallahasse celebrating with my grandson, Taylor. He graduated Magna Cum Laude May 16th from Mercer University in Macon, GA. (See above.)

Taylor refused to wear the silly 2009 sunglasses, so his silly grandmother wore them!

Taylor chose a favorite meal for his celebration dinner, a "Low Country Boil" dinner.
Their plates are empty because we had finished most of the meal.
That's also Tanner, my other grandson, who is 16.

For those who don't know what a low country boil is, a picture of our wonderful dinner is above. It is shrimp, sausage (homemade), corn, and potatoes boiled together in a huge pot. We also had salad, and apples and cheese casserole. Dessert was key lime mango pie and a giant chocolate chip cookie cake (see in background.)

CONGRATULATIONS, TAYLOR!!!
We are so proud of you!

Isn't he handsome!

We praise God for good grandchildren who have never given their parents a minutes trouble! What a blessing!

The food, all of it, looks and sounds great!And Wow, Magna Cum Laude. That's great. It's must have something to do with his date of birth.

That's cute, Clif! Since you two have the same birth dates, I'm sure it has a lot to do with it! LOL!

Congratulations to Taylor! I know all of you are very proud of him. The photos of the boys are wonderful--and you sporting the 2009 glasses too. I've been wanting some low country boil ever since you mentioned it!
