It's a Celebration!

Another college graduation, yea! Bradley graduated last week from Brigham Young University with a degree in Business from the Marriott School.

Congratulations Bradley, we love you!

The Marriott Center wasn't full, but as you can see there were a lot of students graduating and a lot of people there to watch. FYI, Jimmers' (Jimmer Fredette) girlfriend was sitting right in front of us but didn't know it till it was over though. Not that it would have made any difference. But still.

Here is the Kalood team. Brad, Matt, and Neal. Now that school is over they are 100% focusing on Kalood.

My father drove up from St. George to help celebrate Brad's special day. We missed Clark. He is finishing up things in Hawaii but maybe when Michelle graduates we can all be together for that one.

Laurel and Whitney. These two have known each other since they were 18 months old. Whitney's husband was graduating and we just happened to run into them afterwards. Whitney always had the best birthday parties at her house. Remember the mermaid party Whitney when your mom painted the mermaid and the kids could poke their little faces through the face and "be the mermaid"? So cute.

Erica, Natalie, and Laurel. Erica is Michelle's age and Laurel and Natalie are the same age. These girls grew up together in Newbury Park too, along with Whitney. Their brother Jacob graduated and we were invited to the party afterwards. (Michelle couldn't make the party due to deadlines in moving from her apt.)

Our good friends from "back in the day", Art and Patti Rascon. The Rascons lived in Newbury Park for only 5 or so years, but we will always be life long friends. So good to see them and wished the visit could have been longer. Mark and Patti are related, how about that? They share the same relative, Anne Eliza Baker.

Here is the Rascon Family minus Matthew.

Stay tuned for more fun!
