A Special Day

This past Friday Nate graduated!! He graduated from BYU in Exercise Science, with a minor in Business Management. I am so proud of Nate for his hard work and dedication. He was on the Dean's list two semesters this past year for having a 4.0 GPA. Cami's husband, JR, also graduated on Friday. Nate begins training with his new job on Monday! We are very excited for this opportunity. We will be moving somewhere North in August. Congratulations Nate and JR!

Graduation was two days. The first day was the Universities commencement ceremony. President Uchtdorf was awarded an honorary doctorate and also gave a speech. The second day was the department convocation.

I have recently learned how into baseball cards Nate and his brother Jason were growing up. Their mom has been storing the cards for years, having been told not to throw any away. She packed one full suitcase of baseball cards and brought them with her on the plane. Nate and Jason went through them Friday night looking to see if any are worth anything now. Nate will probably hang on to the one's worth something, I think we should sell them!

La Carreta...best Peruvian joint in town!!

Last night we antended Cami's graduation. She graduated as a dental hygienist from UCDH. She graduated with a 4.0 GPA and was awarded the Excellence in Professional Care Award. Congratulations Cami!

San Diego

This past weekend was spent in San Diego at our good friends Cortney and Laura's wedding. Instead of flying, we decided to cut costs and make the ten hour drive with Brent and Jen. We left at 9 p.m. on Wednesday and drove through the night.

Cortney has always been very close to Nate and I. He was one of my best guy friends the first couple years of college and was good friends with Nate as well. He was very instrumental in the process of Nate and I meeting, dating, and then later marrying. He was also Nate's best man at our wedding.

We could not have hand picked a better person for Cortney to end up with. We absolutely LOVE Laura!

We arrived in San Diego at 7 a.m., just in time to eat breakfast at a cafe on the beach.

That night we ordered pizza and hung out in Cortney's hotel room.

The boys went golfing at our hotel, and the girls hung out at the spa pool.

Wedding party dinner the night before wedding.

We ate a ridiculous amount of Pink Berry. On our drive home, we stopped outside Vegas so Jen and I could ride a roller coaster.

An Apostle's Easter Thoughts on Christ

One of the great consolations of this Easter season is that because Jesus walked such a long, lonely path utterly alone, we do not have to do so.
