In April, we not only got snow (see previous post), but we also celebrated Seth's birthday. Mike made his lovely German chocolate cake.
Katie's birthday was the same day, but she was not here :-(
The end of May we took a trip to Provo/American Fork/Springville to decorate graves. We also visited with living relatives and some friends. Below is an acquaintance of Berenice's from years gone by. Tom somebody. I didn't catch his name, but they had a nice little visit in American Fork. You can see Mike and Gayela standing by the cars in the background, waiting.
We took Caroline along with us for the ride. She had fun. Can you tell from the photo? ;-)
Other family came to meet us at the park. Nick and Kaylee below.
We stopped in at another relative's to go over some old photos. This is Ann, a cousin of John's.
We got in late on Tuesday night. Wednesday we spent some time at the pool, Mike, Eric and I. Tandy had a bazillion errands to run, and her final piano lesson to teach.
Thursday morning was the graduation in Balboa Park in San Diego. It started fairly early, we had to deal with traffic on freeways, parking, etc. But first we had to have CAR KEYS! Yikes. Damian had to be there early for a run-though and took Eric and Lexi to help save seats (which ended up being very unnecessary), and the keys for Tandy's van -- the only set of working keys-- ended up in Damian's pocket and we didn't know it until he was practically there. Argh. So we 6 piled into our 5 seatbelt little car and took off! Good thing they started late. Very late. We'd seen the entire program all printed out. Script, actually. Word for word. And they started late and ended early. Pretty nice, eh? We thought so.
Great seats. Great Navy band. Good speech. Good-looking Navy Lieutenant.
We ate out after and then headed home to Cedar. A thousand miles in less than three days. My b___t's tired. And we do it again tomorrow!!!
For Nick's graduation in Salt Lake City on the 8th. PharmD. Yay for Nick and Damian, our newest graduations.
