We’ve all probably seen those people who bore others to death with vacation pictures. Most of it is done via Facebook and other social sites nowadays. This makes it convenient to slap a like on a couple of pictures and avoid actually having to look at each picture and hear each “funny” story that goes with it. If you ask me, it’s a win-win.
Today’s blog is going to be like one of those slide show parties of my weekend. Not because I personally did anything exciting but more because I’m just one proud aunt. And I really have nothing else ready to go.
My oldest niece graduated from college this weekend. Like a real university graduation. That just doesn’t happen to people I know a lot. At least, people I know well enough to attend the ceremonies. Pardon me if I’m just a little excited but this was my first university commencement. I’ve been to plenty of high school graduations and a few community college graduations but no institutes of higher learning. Guess what? There were no beach balls or naked dolls the faculty had to remove during the evening. What a relief.
Plus, she is not a theater major. Or an English major. She received a Business Management degree. Insert another sigh of relief here. As I said, I’m a pretty proud aunt. To understand Lyn’s story you can check it out here or here.
That was a pretty long explanation just to tell you that today’s post will be my weekend in pictures. At least, the pictures that weren’t good enough to make the Facebook cut. Sorry. But that’s what I’ve been busy doing the past few days.
Lyn was worried we’d run into traffic for Saturday morning’s convocation. We did not. We arrived quite early and I had to do something to entertain myself while we waited for the previous college’s ceremonies to end.
On Saturday, I took some time to attend the Jordan River Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Here are some photos from that adventure.
