It's hard to believe that this is Ryan's last high school dance! He's graduating two weeks from today. I took over 100 prom pictures!! I'm sparing you all those pictures and am just picking out a few.

Ryan and Zena

Can't be the same Ryan I sent to kindergarten 13 years ago!!

The dudes ~ Ryan and friends clowning around

The entire group of friends that Ryan and Zena went with. After prom, they all went together on a party bus.

Ryan got to use his dad's Firebird convertable. Here they are heading to prom

Ryan and Megan. Ryan and Megan have known each other since they were babies.

Had to have a prom picture of them. Silly kids!

Getting Ready!

We had a fun weekend of getting our new camper ready to go for it's first trip! Of course it looked so easy at the showroom, but trying to unhook the camper from the SUV the first time proved difficult until Michael figured out the "trick" to it

Then there was the bike rack, but it finally came together. We have it set up for 3 bikes.

Dakota went up pretty easy, and even has a neat little gas grill

Our "little" kitchen and dinette. The dinette converts to a bed.

One of the two king beds and the couch which folds into a bed.

Finally Home

We finally brought Dakota home!! We promptly parked it in the garage, since I had to work that night. Today we're pulling her out and getting her set up. First thing we have to do before we open her up is to assemble the bike rack and mount it on the roof. This should be interesting, hehehe. We also have a shopping trip planned and have a list to pick up all the odds and ends we'll need. We go on our first trip in two weeks!!!

Me and Dakota

Michael carefully watching the hookup process. It's amazing how much there is to know just to hook up the tow vehicle. We decided Michael's RX300 would be the better tow vehicle. It already had a hitch, and can handle a bigger load than the Sienna.
