Prom 2014

 It's that time of year again.  I have to say, Prom is quite different when getting a boy ready as opposed to a girl.  No hair or nail appointments, not accessory shopping.  We go to the tux shop, pick a tux, match the vest and tie to the girl's dress and we're off.  Getting dressed, also easier.  Basically, I saac and I both got home about 20 minutes before he had to get to his date's house.  A quick shower for each of us, thrown on our respective clothes and hey, we even had time to take a few pictures at home.  The boy is ever a clown.  I'm glad he indulges my photographic drives.  So I present a few of the many faces of Isaac.

 Do I not make these flowers look extremely manly?
 GQ look or wondering what exactly those two birds are doing in the tree over there?
 Hiiiiii, I'm yer date.
I quite like his very adorable date.  She was lovely but not inclined to take herself too seriously and thus willing to mug ridiculously for the camera with little prompting.  This earns points with me.

And then there was the post-photo op, pre-prom ping pong match.  Yeah, say that five times real fast.  I forget who won but I know she was doing well enough early on that the boy defended his poor showing with, "But I'm in a tux!"  We were unsympathetic.
She ain't no pushover, is she?  Have I mentioned I like this girl?
They may not have been prom king and queen but they get my vote for the most fun and most adorable couple at the prom.

Reminds me of my prom...except for the cute date thing. Well my date was cute, but she kinda didn't like me very much.

Loe it!! They both look like fun people to date! I love the lack of pretension which is so rare in that age.

Love it.
Having only done the boy to the prom gig I'd failed to appreciate the contrast.
They are both cute as can be and think I'd like her too.

That's awesome! I love them both. I love the fun personalities and they make a very lovely couple.
Hope they had a wonderful time!

My son and his girlfriend skipped the prom. They went out for a few hours with some friends and came back to my house and watched a movie.

They both said it wasn't worth the hassle. It freaked my wife out but since I skipped my junior and senior proms as well it didn't bother me.

A fun and handsome couple.

Awww how cute are they! Isaac looks a lot like his mom. Kind of acts like her too. ;) And yes, she's a sweetie. Make sure he hangs onto her for a while. :)

Boy's got his mama's eyes, thinks I. . .

They certainly look like a good match (or like they had a good match.)

Oh, and the tat? Hilarious.

All you've ever wanted is a couple of goofballs, to make you feel less alone.
