Grad and day out

One of the kids from our church is graduating and going on to college to get a history major and he would one day like to teach and I think he will be an excellent teacher.  The school colors are blue and white.

Hero Arts -- Friendly flags stamp set
Cam & Chloe -- dots background stamp
David Tuttera -- Celebrate sentiment
American crafts -- Twine
Pebbles -- Candy dots

I am terrible about getting posts done of when we go out and take pictures, but I picked a few to share from back in mid May.  I have shared pictures before of this place, we like to go and see the baby ducks, well because of all the rain we had we didn't get out there in time and the babies aren't so small anymore.  As we were walking up they ran to the farmers field.

We have bunny's in our backyard all the time but I still think they are cute, this little guy is cooling off in the shade.

I wish I could remember what kind of tree this is, my hubby looked it up when we got home, but I can't remeber what he said. They are sharp thorns, never saw a tree like that before.

We stopped to have a picnic and while I was finishing eating my hubby went up to get some pictures, I just got everything back to the car and it started raining so I jumped in and drove up to where he was so he and his camera didn't get wet.  We decided to just drive slowly through the park until it quit raining and my hubby saw this rainbow and I saw how it was coming down over this farm so I stopped the car and took this picture, it was still sprinkling at the time and it was far away but you can still make it out.

Lastly another rainbow shot this time with a tree :)

Wishing you a fun and creative weekend, Thanks so very much for takng the time to stop by today!!

Cute card, Connie. Perfect for a male graduate. Bunnies are cute, but I hope they don't invite themselves into your veggie patch. =)

What a fun card! I love all the patterns on the banner and that fun confetti background. Awesome pictures as well. Sometimes it's fun to get caught in the rain. This looks like one of those times. Beautiful pictures!

I love banners and like how that is the focal point. Congrats to the graduate.

I love when people share photos and their stories. The rainbow is beautiful. So glad you had some dry weather to share your good times with us.

Yikes, that is one wicked looking tree! Maybe a thorny locust? Wouldn't want to fall on that! Looks like a beautiful spot for a picnic, which is something I absolutely love to do. Still waiting for our summer to get in full swing. Our weather has been very unpredictable. Your grad card is perfect for a young man. I just love banners and flags on cards. I went to a grad party yesterday and gave a store bought card. First card I've bought in ages.

Great card for a masculine graduation, very nice of you to figure out the school colors.

The photos are nice, it is fun to be able to capture a rainbow, usually you can't see the rainbow at all when I try it!
