Eric’s Graduation from Notre Dame Weekend – Friday, May 15, 2010

During the weekend of May 14th, the Mays & Vassallos we’re thrilled to be a part of Eric’s graduation from the University of Norte Dame.

For the past four years we’ve been very lucky to have had the opportunity to get to see Eric on a regular basis while he was at ND – at Thanksgiving at our house, Easter at Mom and Dad’s, and various weekends in between – it’s just been really great to have the Midwest contingent of the Fritz-Vassallo-May family grow. And we are even more thrilled that Eric received and accepted a job in Chicago – so Eric, the Vassallo-May’s are like glue…you’re stuck with us and we can’t wait to see you in Chi-town!

AND we hope to see more family on a regular basis!

The graduation festivities were kicked off with Bea, Brian and Emily coming in for the event and staying at Mom and Dad’s before we trekked to South Bend for the weekend.

It’s been 12 years since Larry and I have seen Bea (at Lynette and Steve’s wedding) and we were so excited to be able to catch up – actually, we didn’t even need to catch up, it was like we had seen her just yesterday – but it was so nice to be able to chat face-to-face and enjoy having family together etc. for this special weekend.

What was really wonderful is that we were able to get to know Brian and Emily, who would have been too young to remember us, so this was an added bonus to the weekend! And we were able to pick Brian’s brain about the exciting event in his life coming up: graduation from high school and entrance into the Naval Academy – way to go Brian! And Emily shared her plans for the Summer: Barn Camp and getting excited for going into the 6th grade.

Larry and I went over to Mom and Dad’s for some pre-South Bend activities – a BBQ – yum! I pretty much am a happy camper when anyone mentions BBQ, so if you combine Friday night + hamburgers and hot dogs with family and to me that equals fun! Thanks for the great spread Mom & Dad!

We spent the evening catching up and just plain vedging – perfect for gearing up for the packed graduation weekend schedule to come!
