We’ve had a busy weekend!
No, Baby S is not here yet. She’s still enjoying her quiet time alone. But as many of you who have been reading this blog for a little while know, Kevin has been a hard-working student who has been putting time in the trenches towards a degree in architecture…
And this Saturday he graduated! So very proud of this huge accomplishment in his life. It’s tough to go back to school with a family and even more so when you’re one of the oldest in your class. But tiny toothpick models (I loved those) and 3D renderings have paid off and he’s made it happen.
Ahh man, I started tearing up during the address almost immediately. So many years, so much dedicated time, so many night classes… I was so happy to be able to be there to see him receive his diploma.
The Salk Institute here in San Diego is truly a stunning commencement location, perfect for a class full of architecture and design students. That backdrop there? The Pacific Ocean for as far as the eye can see.
After the pomp and circumstance we had a nice lunch overlooking the water with our families.
Next day Liv and I made Grandma’s lemon bars (and a giant picnic lunch) and we headed to the beach to celebrate with friends!
Check out these two as they strike a pose. Baby girl #1 has momma’s crazy hair.
We also celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary! (more about the big day here)
So a busy weekend, no? Hope that you had a wonderful one, too! I’m feeling pretty grateful that this baby has waited long enough for me to celebrate both of these events with Kevin, but now we are ready!
My very uncomfortable sleep/wake/waddle/work schedule is exhaustive… we are ready, ready. We’re like:
Awesome clip from here. No but really, we love you sweet baby girl #2. We’re excitedly, anxiously waiting.
PS A back massage from your kids while they play with their toy cars? I must order this asap.
