Caleb told me he was planning to pick up his date, Rachel, and then head to Noto's (Italian restaurant where the banquet was held) for pictures first. I kind of wanted to take pictures of him with his date, but wasn't sure what the "protocol" was. I knew the girls' moms would go to take pictures, but did the boys' mom's go to take pictures too? And where was Noto's restaurant? How would I find them inside where they were taking pictures? (I knew it would be inside because it was raining, cold and windy outside). How I wish I had more confidence in situations like this!
It all turned out fine. I found the restaurant, pulled in the same time as Caleb and Rachel, walked into the restaurant with them and found that everyone was taking pictures on the beautiful spiral staircase. I was able to meet Rachel's parents and see all the track kids I know looking spiffed up.
