Graduation, Graduation, Family...

The month of May has come and is almost gone! A trip to Atlanta to watch DJ graduate and a celebration party the weekend after we got back - WOW...but lots of fun. DJ is very lucky to have such wonderful family and friends who have been so supportive of him during this journey. He had an awesome cheering squad from the Georgia Tech stands (MINUS HIS WIFE AND SON!). For those of you who have not heard the story...Cole decided to throw a tantrum right as the graduates names were starting to be called. I was furious and very flustered as this was a big moment for me so the tricks up my sleeves were hard to pull out! After a very long tantrum, two time outs and trying to keep a good mood, I finally realized Cole's pants were wet. Of course! Perfect timing...I was way at the top of the stadium, platform shoes, and a screaming child with diarrhea and no diaper bag or cell phone! I was able to convince a very reluctant security guard to gather my diaper bag by writing a note to my mother-in-law. "Valerie - I need diaper!". By the time I got the bag, changed Cole (very bad diaper rash) - DJ had already walked the stage. You can imagine how upset I was...anyway, it was  great weekend and one we will never forget!

And my sister, brother-in-law and their two children were able to come and celebrate with us in Los Alamos this last weekend for a party with friends. We had an awesome weekend and it was very sad to see family leave. Jake, Clara and Cole got along so well. We spent lots of time hanging out at home, went to the kite festival, bowled in the drive way, read books and ate WAY TOO much cake!
