I would like to thank my brother for graduating from the Citadel and for giving me an opportunity to wear my beloved Alabama Chanin dress. We look particularly goofy in these pictures--that's because I grabbed my brother's hat and put it on, as silly girls often do, but then I remembered myself and apologized for disrespecting the uniform. A photographer walked over and encouraged me to please put the hat back on, so I complied in the same silly manner. As he was snapping away, I realized that I definitely looked more like my brother's girlfriend than his older sister. Ooops. That's awkward.
We spent the evening hanging out at the Waterfront Park fountains. Cara was most excited to play in them, but her little brother was not quite as brave.
