My brother Jesse graduated from college last weekend, and so the whole family came to celebrate.
It began with a bus ride from the parking garage to the church...as in school bus, which I think was a very smart way to transport people through Chicago.
Proud wife and baby
And Aidan's cousin was there, too, of course. What a cutie!
Aaron was very proud that he took this photo from a fair distance away...and then he laughed about it the whole way through the ceremony.
Unfortunately, I'm either a poor photographer, or my lens is not strong enough to take nice photos from that far away. Alas, most of them look like they were taken on a cell phone.
"Hey, Grandma has snacks! I want some!"
"Out of my way, bud."
Learning to share.
"Look at the silly face I can make, Ma."
Even if I could have gotten a good shot of Jesse getting his diploma, some folks below held up signs for their graduate and obstructed my view, so I got nothin'.
"Way to go, Daddy! Yea!"
Trying to get out....wanna play Where's Aidan?
After the ceremony, there was a party...Grandma made the cake.
"Let me out!"
This guy is such a little ham...he kept having me take pictures and showing them to him.
"Hey, can I try?"
"Here, let me close that flash for you."
Like Daddy, like baby...trying to open doors.
My favorite picture.
Congratulations, Jesse! We're so proud of you (and happy you are home)!
