Prom. Prom? PROM!?

How am I old enough to have a child going to prom? Insane.

This last weekend was our school's prom and Pal took his girlfriend (remember, "Prom Traditions"?) with a bunch of his buddies. Gotta admit, it was really fun to see my boy all dressed up with his girl (who is the most adorable tomboy you've ever seen...seeing her all dolled up was awesome!).

Speaking of getting dolled up...isn't it unfair that this is what it takes for a guy to get ready?

Shower, get dressed, leave.


So anyway, as per tradition, oodles of prom go'ers meet at a local "park" in town for photo ops after they're making the rounds to each other's families. I met "the kids" down by the mighty Mississippi and took TONS of pictures.

Holy smokes, guys, when did the girls become so...developed?! Gah. I don't remember all the cleavage at my prom!! And, the dresses????? Geepers, I feel like a prude, but DANG! Some of those girls needed a sweater!

We had tons of fun with the is one of my favorite photos of the guys:

The girls were a little more shy, not willing to loosen up as much as the guys!

And, some of my favorite photos of my boy and his girl.

What a fun day for them! I had a talk with Pal before he left I said, "I'll tell you what my mom said to us, 'No sex, no drugs, no booze'.", he laughed and said, "Hano (his teacher) told me, "Pal, 'No drugs, do dooies (DUI's), no grandkids', that's a good prom weekend!"...cracked us up!!

And, in a moment of "aw shucks"...I wore purple to my prom, as well!! :)

  5. they are so cute! I love the pic of them with the rest of your kids... how fun!

  6. Gorgeous! I love the flash back pic. My dress was kind of the black and white one in the middle, but knee length. Ah, 1994. Heh.

  7. Congress tried in 2007 to pass a measure that would lock in the rate that could be charged through 2010 at 7.
    Her first movie was Holiday in the Sun in the year 2001,
    Help in the year 2004. Do I have a niche or speciality that is going
    to make my station unique and successful.

  8. If the state of Minnesota has snow through April - why in the world is prom so dang early?! That poor girl - she looks frozen!! (and of course, the snow in the background of one of the pics doesn't help me picture her not frozen!)
    They all look beautiful tho!

  10. Oh, so beautiful! Love her dress!! SO, my cousin is a professional photographer and I used to help them at the prom a few years back. OH MY WORD! Seriously, more skin, boobs, and legs (practically bums hanging out) than actual dress. It's gross!! Why is that?! Our world is all about sex appeal. sad.


I love comments! And, I welcome your thoughts that aren't in agreement with long as they are respectful!
