Crossing the bridge to a special graduation

A quick stop to let you know I'm still here. Good grief! where do the days go! 



We were in Yorktown Virginia last weekend to see this little sweetie pie graduate from high school.  Yes, our granddaughter Madison. Why it seems like just yesterday that she was the cutest thing around. We were out by the pond cooking hot dogs when she posed for this picture.



and look at her now.



I am not the best picture taker...was Andee sitting down or getting up? Sweet old Bell knew something was going on.


Graduation was held at Busch Gardens. Todd, Madison, and Andee.


just before all of them threw their caps into the air,, darn it, I missed it!


is this a happy face or what! 

Poppy and I were so glad to be at her graduation. Proud as we were, that trip to Yorktown meant, waaay up ahead at the end of this long bridge...

we would reach the tunnel and travel under water for a few miles, not my favorite thing to do. 


Here we go...scary stuff!



and can you imagine...


This is how it really looks! The Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel.

Hope you haven't completely crossed me off your list. I'll be back to visit and catch up. Didn't mean to stay away so long.

Love,
Henny

  3. Congratulations on your graduation sweet Madison, may all your dreams and wishes come true !
    We have an underwater tunnel under the River Mersey in Liverpool, when I was young my dad would take us on a drive and we would always want to go under the tunnel and honk our horn !
    That is one beautiful bridge.

  10. I see an awful lot of tight curls in the first picture and no curls in the last pictures. Did the curls go away or does she straighten it these days?

  15. Congratulations to Madison. Graduations are such special times. So good that you all could be there to share her day.

    That tunnel is really something. I'm not a fan of tunnels and and an underwater one would be even less inviting.

  18. What a beautiful young woman your granddaughter is!
    That bridge/tunnel is an amazing feat of engineering. Bridges and tunnels don't bother me. I am just in awe what what we can build.

  24. Where did all those tiny curls go?!! Congratulations to Madison, and congratulations to Henny for making it through that tunnel. I am not sure I could have done it. I think you are very, very brave.
