Malcolm Graduation Party
Friday 30 June 2006

At the end of June 2006 both James and Ian celebrated a joint graduation party. With James finishing high school and Ian getting his degree, basically everybody turned out to the Malcolm house for a day of partying.

Highlights of the day included a game of Magic for some, slip & sliding for others, and swimming for most. This also served as a Fourth of July party, with a fireworks display later in the evening. All in all a very fun party!

Additional galleries were posted by Kim and by Erin.

Attendees: Far too many to list.


He wasted no time today By the time I got to the Malcolm's around 1:00, Phil was already wearing a coconut bikini.

At least is wasn't a grey lei Erin received a blue lei, but it wasn't the blue that was the subject of some off-color jokes.

Zeus called from Olympus Ian visited the kiddie table for a bit. It's sort of a step down for him but he was professional about it.

He's working on it though Josh wears leis to feel festive, but that is not a behavior that he is prone to expressing.

Problem with the Universe, number 382: Frozen yogurt machines should dispense their goods at a faster pace I like to think that right here Kim is telling Ian exactly what is wrong with the nature of the universe, as well as suggestions on how to fix these problems. Ian makes mental notes.

And with pretzels in store, apparently Charles and Katy arrived at full gallop.

There's a physics lesson here somewhere Jeff provides the mounting for a water balloon launcher. As you might imagine, this didn't work and Jeff got a bit wet.

I think it was actually meant for Phil Mike hits Devin with a water balloon.

This may be a poor planning of resources Devin just hopped into the pool with his heavy jeans on. No swimming gear, apparently.

The watery death traps of our youths no longer hurt so much The Malcolms had a Slip 'n Slide! Ian, James, Josh, Phil, Erin, and Holub all took turns on it.

I stole this photo from Erin for pacing.

It's got more liquor in it than a Russian politician Jeff drinks one of the potent Malcolm margarita.

Katy also seems to be a sort of coatrack for leis Erin and Katy share a moment. Both may be getting too much sun.

He needs one of those blow-drying jackets from Back to the Future Charles takes darned near forever to dry after going swimming.

Charles is a miracle worker Phil receives a message from the tender hands of Doctor Charles.

Everyone has their own style Holub takes a go at Phil, but Phil thought that Charles had a more sensitive touch.

Is he like a lion of sorts? I ... I guess I don't know what Jeff is doing here.

You learn something new everyday Holub finds himself wrapped in a lei. This is what happens when you unwrap a lei.

Paul can even rock out while wet Paul left and then came back, jumping right into the pool once he got back.

So it's an average summer night around here As the evening wore on, one thing led to another and before you knew it Phil was spooning onto Jeff.

Nobody followed the advice of the Hitchhiker's Guide Mimi got Paul a towel because I don't think anybody who went remembered to bring their own.

All this has happened before and all this will happen again Ian runs after lighting a firework.

This seems familiar.

Note that they projected DDR onto the back of the garage People sort of mill around aimlessly as the evening comes to a close.

Aww, isn't that cute?  But it's wrong! James and Laura snuggle on a lawn chair in the moments before I got kicked off the Malcolm property.

A fitting end to a simply splendid party!
