graduation celebration!

on sunday, after my graduation ceremony, we went out to dinner with our families to celebrate graduation and mother's day.  after dinner, everyone came back to our house for dessert.  ryan and i made a four-layer chocolate cake with fresh raspberry filling, topped with buttercream frosting.  (chocolate and raspberries are probably one of my favorite combinations ever.)  it was so nice to have everyone together to celebrate, and i had such a good time!

after dessert, my parents, ryan's parents, and ryan all surprised me with a new camera!  it was definitely a huge surprise, and i cannot wait to try it out!!!  (i have a feeling that leko is going to be a very photographed kitten as i learn all the different settings on the camera!)

thanks everyone for such an awesome graduation gift!
i had an amazing weekend!
love, laurie
