Finally, my boy is DONE with school forever!! We went home for a couple of weeks after Kade was done taking finals, and then flew back to Philly with his family for the ceremony. We had a fun time walking around and saying our goodbyes. The only unfortunate part...I got strep throat the morning before we flew out to PA. Awesome! I tried hard not to pass it on to Kade, but he was definitely not feeling too great the day he walked. Poor guy. We made the best of it, and definitely had something to look forward to: The day after graduation, we all flew out to the Caribbean to celebrate on the little island of Anguilla.
Our favorite Philly treat, water ice.
Frozen yogurt after shopping for Penn memorabilia. The lines in the bookstore were HUGE!
The ceremony was on Mother's Day so we decided to wait and celebrate in Anguilla.
So proud of him. He worked so hard!!
We loved our Philly adventure, but can say we are glad it is over!
Next up...Anguilla! We took a commercial plane down to Puerto Rico, and then they put us on a small private plane to head to the island. Our captain flew straight over our hotel on the way in. Pretty cool!
View from the roof hot tub in our villa.
Kip found a shack on the beach about a half mile up the shore with yummy tacos. We went there twice to eat and loved walking up as the sun was setting.
P and I got our pedicures on next to the pool. The weather was perfect!
We took a little boat over to the island of St. Maarten and shopped around one day.
The island was pretty empty with not many people. (Population of about 10,000) Kade said it reminded him of Jamaica because it was kind of ghetto. We enjoyed a lot of relaxing down time with the fam. Kip was having some back problems at the time so he wasn't able to do much, but he didn't complain once. Of course.
We rode bikes to get breakfast one day, and loved looking out from wherever we were sitting at the clear blue water with white sand.
Rhet played basketball with some other guests at the hotel, and we all enjoyed the gym a few of the days we were there to compromise for the delicious food intake.
It was a great celebration, and we loved spending time with family.
Spoiled, yet again, with many more family memories.
