Greg’s Going to Boot Camp Party

For most of you this will be a pretty boring post but I use this blog as our scrapbook and I couldn’t let such a huge event go undocumented! A few weeks ago we threw a party for Greg before he left for boot camp. We had a wonderful day of hanging out and writing Greg notes in a book for him to take with him! Now onto the party pictures!
