Baby Sandy, Graduation and more Baby Sandy!

Isn't she just the cutest little thing you've ever seen? Her puffy cheeks! Her round eyes! Her big smiles! Okay, so maybe I'm a little biased because I don't get to see her very often, but really, she is the cutest.

The Big Graduation Weekend has come and gone. Jen (and Baby Sandy) and Cody flew in on Friday and we just kind of hung out at my apartment for the afternoon. I took a lot of pictures of Sandy-bear and pretty much spoiled her. After Dan and Kasey put on their armor to rescue Christina (Kasey's girlfriend) when she broke down out in the boonies, we all headed to dinner. BBQ & Blues in Clarkston scored again. That place really, really rocks and if you haven't been there, you should go. Like now, really, go.

Saturday was the big day for Kasey. Four years of classes, tests, books, dodgeball games, frustrating football seasons, group projects, roommates and study sessions all came to a close. Kasey graduated from the College of Business with a degree in Marketing. The three+ hour event took it's toll on all of us out in the audience, but as you can tell from the picture, Jen and Cody found a way to keep themselves entertained. They were sure to take off the headphones when Kasey's name was announced. Afterward we had a big get-together at the Church and my Mom BBQ'd steaks and we all just hung around talking. It was great to catch up with all the family in town and (of course) watch Sandy-bear play.

Saturday night was card-night with the grandparents. Dan and Christina just had to laugh at us. Apparently, in their families, card games do not result in fights. What!?! How is that even possible? The arguments are part of the fun, right?
Sunday morning, we all woke up early to say our goodbyes and everyone was off. It was a quick weekend, but very, very full. Kasey is off to start a new chapter of his life (I know, I know, that's so cliche), but I know he thoroughly enjoyed the time he spent at the University of Idaho. He is a Vandal through-and-through. He stands for the fight song, sings the words and despises Boise State. Yup, he's a Vandal.

How about another picture of Baby Sandy, just 'cause she's so cute!
