Graduation Weekend

This past weekend has been really busy, but really fun as well! Jared's parents and my family were in town for his graduation and so most of the weekend was spent hanging out with family. On Thursday night Jared had a dinner with all of his classmates from their program that we went to. Then on Friday we went to his convocation (where he walked) and then afterward we all went up to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point. I don't have any pictures from that, but once Whitney and Jared's sister post them on their blogs, I'll steal them and put them on here. On Saturday morning, Jared's sister Mikell went through the temple for the first time so I went to that. Sadly, Jared got really sick the night before so he wasn't able to make it, but luckily he felt better later that day so we all went out to dinner to celebrate both of Jared's sister's birthdays since they are only about a week apart. For a graduation present, Jared's parents got him an iphone that he's been coveting for the past six months or so. He is pretty excited about it, and has been fiddling with it for the the past two days now. On Sunday we spent Easter with my family up at Whit's house. We had some delicious ham and other goodness.

Now we are back to the grind this week. I have to take one spring class that starts on Wednesday and Jared needs to finish up some of his senior projects before he's officially graduated. Right now he's on his way up to a second interview at Xango which is a pretty big company here in Utah. We are hoping that he can get that job because it would be a good starting place for him to get experience. We'll keep everybody posted in the next couple of days.

This is the BFA lab, where Jared spent most of
his days in his graphic design program

This is how I would usually find him if I ever visited him at school
minus the gown, white shirt and tie :)

Jared's mom was really enthralled with the graduation speakers. . .

So was my dad, haha!

Congratulations baby, I'm so proud of you!

Stace, I am glad you liked the QE bands. Melissa has some that she will bring to you and Jared when she goes back to Provo. I will have her take some for Whitney too. :) BTW, Happy Graduation!!
