We stopped in Columbus for lunch on our way to Miami University to celebrate Grace’s graduation. We stopped at Wolf’s Ridge which has become our go to place in Columbus . We had a great lunch as always.
We stayed at Hueston Woods State Park where we had three cabins. Two for us and 1 for the Meaney’s. We arrived late afternoon and quickly settled into our beautiful setting.
This has been the third time we have stayed in the cabins at Hueston Woods. We were really lucky that we got them for graduation weekend. Penny and I got on the phones over a year ago on the day they opened up and I lucked out and got through.  They sell out in less than an hour.

We had 20+ for dinner; hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and lots of things people brought. Worked out great.

We went to Grace’s house for brunch along with the families of her three roommates.
The happy housemates
Grace had THE most amazing college house ever for Senior year.

The commencement ceremony was BRUTAL. Super HOT and sunny, awful speaker. Over half of the crowd and graduates were gone before it was over. Really bad.
the future is bubbly!
celebrating graduation
our tree peony bloomed on the day we were leaving so we cut most of the blooms and brought them with us 🙂
The age 25+ crowd left the partiers behind and headed back to Hueston woods and quickly settled into another great campfire evening

love the early morning campsite

Courtney and I stuck around for Grace’s business school ceremony which was 1000 percent better than the commencement. Everyone else hit the road mid morning.
