On Saturday, we had an 8th grade graduation party for Alexis. Due to her love of Japan, the culture, the people, the language, we went with a Japanese theme: Cherry Blossoms. The party wasn't a surprise, but the theme was kept from her for months. Because she's vegetarian, we served vegetarian Japanese dishes. After the party, which was about 4 hours long, we went to the Orlando Science Center. What a wonderful day!
Here is a sampling of the shots from the party:
