So Ben and I graduated this past semester. Ben actually graduated in April and I will be done by December but he walked late and I walked early so we could graduate together. It was so much fun.
My whole family came up which was a complete surprise. My brother and sister told me they could not come so when they walked in the doors of Olive Garden I was shocked. Now if you know me I am not good with surprises (I was the one in which my friends threw me a surprise 16th birthday party at a pizza place and when I walked in with my parents I was so embarrassed because I thought my friends were having a party without me and they just did not invite me). But I was so excited to see them. It was so much fun to see them because I did not know if I was going to be able to see them before Ben and I left for Connecticut.
So I have so many pictures from graduation because my father got a new camera and Nate got a little crazy with taking pictures. I must say Ben enjoyed all the pictures that were being taken of him.....he actually compared it to our numerous wedding day photos.

Fourth of July

So we went up to the cabin for the fourth and it was so much fun. It was great to get out of the Berg and have a little mini vacation. They had a firework show over the lake and it was amazing. We drove the boat to where they were setting off the firworks and we were so close that we had to look directly up the whole time. Meanwhile little sparks were hitting the water around us and we could hear them sizzle. I have to say one of the coolest firework experiences I have had. But it was so much fun!!! Too bad we are back at school but only 2 more weeks. I am so excited!!!

Some of the children.....
