We've lived in Utah, Nebraska, upper Michigan and now we've settled in Colorado...at least for now! Marley is 10, Isi is 6 and Enzo is 4.

Life is great!

That is a mix between graduation and education.....or graduation and vacation.

And though we did do both combinations very recently, this post is about the first.

I'm going to give you a very small graduation education.

#1. When you are graduating and you have to wear a big black robe, make sure you iron it. I learned this when I graduated from BYU in 2007. I, inappropriately assumed none of my friends were going to iron their gowns. I was wrong and I was the only one with a crazy wrinkled robe. Ironed or not those robes are not flattering to the figure but, not ironed it's worse. Much worse.

#2. If you're husband is graduating do not underestimate his ability to look downright irresistibly sexy in his regalia. I didn't think he would because, as mentioned before, it's such a frumpy non-complimentary outfit....but, with that ironed robe and mortar board hat....Ooo my man was SEXY!

THE END of the graduation education. I'm sure there is more...but, I feel these are the two most important points.

Now. Between graduation and our vacation, I took over 600 pictures. Crazy. I know. So, it may be a little while before I get some pictures posted of either.

All the pictures I have ever taken since I got my computer in 2005 are in the process of being backed up to CDs....that may slow down the process of posting pictures as well. I'm sorry, but graduation pictures are coming soon! Graducation = Graduation + Vacation also coming soon.

I'm betting that the combination of the graduation gown and the fact that he was, indeed, graduating helped with the sexy factor. I can understand that. Can't wait to see pictures!!!
