How it really turned out...
Sister arrived at 12:45PM (1.5 hours late!)
Went to a random party store closer to home instead of the planned one because didn't have enough time. Not much balloon selections and no graduation teddy bears.
Dad had to help pick up daughter because there was a ridiculously long line at the store and each customer was buying a dozen helium inflated balloons
Met up with parents at 2:15PM (late - 30 minutes)
Got awful seats, all the way on the top of the bleachers basking in the hot sun :(
All of us got sunburned except my two daughters who were wearing sunblock.

It was foggy and I didn't expect the weather to be so HOT! Not only did I get sunburned, I was dehydrated and for the remaining of the day, I had a massive headache. Even though I drank a glass of water as soon as I got home and took a short nap, my headache didnt' go away and instead I started feeling somewhat dizzy. I thought I was alright so I went to the graduation dinner and (sigh) had to apologize and left 15 minutes into the meal because I was nauseous and dizzy with a throbbing headache. My sister drove me home and returned back to the restaurant. Good thing we dined at a restaurant only a few minutes away from my house. When I got home, I drank half a cup of coke and started to feel better. It has been 3 hours now, no more headache, no more dizziness, and no more nausea .
