Uncle David's Graduation
We sure had fun with you on Saturday as you and your mommy and daddy joined the rest of us as we watched your Uncle David graduate from college. It was very exciting to see him finish this leg in his life journey, and to have his niece there to watch!Uncle David received a very big award and so he got to sit on the stage right behind the podium where the speakers gave their speeches. I’m glad he behaved himself, because if he didn’t everyone would know…
You see, we were in the San Diego State Viejas Arena where Grandpa attended some basketball games with Uncle David. There were thousands of people and we were sitting way high up, but the whole arena could watch Uncle David time and again for almost three hours because he was on the jumbo screens above the court during the entire ceremony!
Kaylee, you loved the whole event. You were our little “pass around pack.” Between Daddy, Mommy, Nana, Grandpa, and Uncle Greg, you kept us entertained. And you also made sure you smiled a lot at the people sitting behind us.Then when we went out to eat later, Uncle David got to hold you, too. What a great day for all of us!

Happy five months! You are sure getting to be a big girl. As we talked about earlier this week, it was your mommy and daddys’ wedding anniversary on Tuesday. The second anniversary is a “cotton” anniversary, so your mommy gave your daddy some clothes and your daddy cooked your mommy a wonderful dinner with dessert, all made from scratch, because your daddy is a great cook! He even studied at cooking school.
What about the cotton? Your daddy had cotton scented candles…
Kaylee, I’ll tell you a story about your mommy relating to your daddy. When they started going out, your mommy was pretty interested in your daddy. Then, later, I knew she was really interested because we had a daddy/ daughter talk.
We were in Maui in August, and we went for a walk along the beach at night. It was a beautiful night (always is in Maui as you will find out) and we sat on a rock wall next to the beach. Your mommy was telling me all about your daddy, and I knew, “O, O,” this could be the “one.”
Well, sure enough, your daddy was the “one.” Still is, except this time, now your mommy has the one, your daddy; your daddy has the one, your mommy; and together they have the one…
