Prom 2016 in the Books


Logan’s school had their prom Saturday night. He wore his late grandfather’s tux complete with vest and tie. The trousersĀ fit pretty good after the alterations, the jacket and vest were fine.


The kid is so danged tall that Heather almost needed a step ladder to get all the motherly primping done. He cleaned up pretty well.


I thought he stood out in the crowd. (Sorry I couldn’t resist). The school arranged for an outdoor event center for photographs. You know for some reason they don’t invite parents to the proms. We had a good time with the kids at the pre-event.


The kid with his nervous and proud mother.


And with a friend.


Did I tell you that I thought he was the handsomest guy there?


And a few more friends.


And another. All the young gentlemen looked and acted the part.


Here he is with a childhood friend. They went to early grade school together and then ran into each other again when Logan started this high school. Tulsa is the biggest small town I’ve ever seen.


And then a call for the young ladies. They were all beautiful in the elegant dresses.


And then the ladies and the guys.


And then the guys, and it kind of went downhill from there. Just kidding, they were a spirited but fun bunch.


And then on the way to the prom we stopped at his grandmother’s house for yet another photo op. These two have a special bond. He was proud to wear his grandfather’s tuxedo and she loved seeingĀ Logan wear it.

And that is where the photos end. We dropped him off and then went back to give him his change of clothes for the after prom and then picked him up after that. I was proud to be chauffeur for the evening.
