Prom 2014 has come and gone. Bryce had a wonderful time. I'm always so stunned by the expenses of prom; with the tickets, tux rental, and corsage, it comes to several hundred dollars. Still, it is great that he is able to make such special memories (I never went to a prom).
Here he is with his date (a friend, not a girlfriend):
And here is the group he went with:
He had been nominated for several things, including "prom king" and "best car for the boys." He said he was tremendously thankful that he didn't win either. He was glad he didn't win the prom king title because he said they made the king and queen dance a slow dance in front of everyone - ha! He was glad he didn't win the best car category because that would have been awkward (and would have made me cry).
Afterwards, instead of going to Post Prom, he decided to have a bonfire on our property. About 20 or so kids showed up at various times for it and they roasted marshmallows for s'mores and munched chips. A friend of his rigged things so they could listen to music (thankfully, our property is big enough, they probably didn't disturb anyone). Everyone had a great time.
