An eventful weekend

Last weekend our son Mark graduated from Furman University with his master's degree in education. There were only five students receiving master's degrees and 600 some getting undergraduate degrees. He was also inducted into the Kappa Delta Pi honors society. Since the graduation was in the evening we decided to have a small family celebration at a local Mexican restaurant that Mark chose. Here are a few pictures from the event:

It rained nearly all day on Saturday so the graduation was held indoors rather than in the outdoor stadium as it had been planned.The ceremony was very nice albeit long and we are very proud of all of Mark's hard work. This is a very eventful summer for Mark and Katie with his graduation, a new baby daughter coming in July, and a possible new position in the fall.

Another event which is very minor in comparison is that Rob tried a new coffee cake recipe this past Sunday. Last week Stacy, from the blog Stacy Makes Cents [1] had a post entitiled Ten Recipes You Must Try--take 2 [2]. The recipe Rob tried was for this Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake [3]. For several years now I have been searching for a chocolate coffee cake recipe and this one is definitely a keeper! It is delicious. Several of the other recipes look like they are worth trying as well.

I hope you had a nice weekend too.
