It’s that time of year again – when folks start firing up their grills, everyone spends more time outside, and, of course, thousands of young men and women across the country graduate from college and get ready to begin the disappointment that is regular adult life!

Either way, it certainly didn’t stop several attending parents to start freaking out!
