ADPi 98 Pledge Class 10 Year Reunion

10 years later
May 2012 Memorial Day Beach Weekend - Grayton Beach, FL
 2012 marks 10 years since most of us in the Class of 98 ADPi Pledge Class graduated from UT. We planned a special beach trip to celebrate. We usually do something in January over Martin Luther King weekend and have done so for the past 9 years. This year we headed to 30A to spend a long Memorial Day weekend in Grayton Beach. Our beach house fell through but Kenz's dad, Hank, offered to host us and we could not have had a better time at Alligator Cove. We had a wonderful time relaxing, laughing, catching up, and eating!

98 Pledge Class - 21 of us from our pledge class
Liz surprised us with official t-shirts!!!

Two of my favorite pictures from Day 1. Liz being Liz and LeeAnn and Baby de Abiega. She actually is a lot smaller than this picture but I love it!

Captain Hank took us on a boat ride on Alligator Lake, a little sunset cruise if you will. It was relaxing and afterwards we saw an alligator!
Dinner and then dancing with DJ Jazzy Jeff at Local Catch. I think we were still home by 11pm!

Day Two: Hank loaded up the car and we went to Grayton Beach with our cherished Tervis Tumbers. I am not sure when we will be too old to poise for pictures like this.

After Dinner at Red Bar - we missed the sunset pictures
We kicked off Pre-Memorial Day with our pajamas still on and Mimosas in our hands. I love this picture! Just chatting with my sisters. I wish I could have breakfast with these gals every weekend like on Sex in the City.

Don't you just love this backdrop! Cheers to friendship and a great reunion!
On Sunday, we headed to Water Sound to meet up with Michelle and Rachel and spend the day.
It was great to see these gals! You could tell we were no longer carefree gals since we spent this day with 30+ sunscreen on, hats, and full umbrellas!
After our fun in the sun, we headed to the Witton's new beach house. It was amazing and Michelle had done a great job with all the personal touches. Her boys CJ and Cooper joined us for some of the festivities.
We surprised LeeAnn with a Baby Shower for Baby de Abiega. I think she was truly surprised. We thought an Americana and State theme was appropriate.

 Kristy made cookies and brought all the way from Annapolis, MD. She is so talented!

We love our shirts Liz and will wear them proudly!
We had our last meal together in Seaside at the food trucks. It was great just to relax and spend time together.
10 Year Reunion Trip comes to an end.
See you in January 2013!


  1. It was awful not being with everyone this year. I will be making up for lost time next year!

  2. I'm really missing this weekend. I can't wait till Jan 2013!
