These are the graduates filing in. John Huntsman Jr. spoke at the commencement ceremony and he gave an excellent speech Brigham truly enjoyed.
Lydia did really well for the first ceremony that everyone attended, but by Brigham's individual department of Humanities commencement she was ready to get out of there! Luckily, she was manageable. After she had eaten through her cheerios, pretzels, and graham crackers she ran around, tore a whole in her tights, and made her mom very tired with her whiny demands for freedom.
Overall she was very good for a one-year-old sitting through five hours of ceremony. This shows two of Brigham's greatest achievements, his degree and his daughter. What a good man and daddy!
Brigham with his Mom and daughter. It was good to have lots of support from family.
Of course, most people know that we, in general, dislike the University of Utah. While they provided a decent and convenient education, BYU is like a BILLION times better :) So we sat in the Y section and got our pictures taken next to the big Y to show our true loyalties. It was hard seeing so much red and black; it hurt my eyes. But an education is an education.
This is Brigham with his dad and brother, Jake. Jake swore after it was all over that he would never go to another college graduation again. Haha, I know how you feel Jake, but it's good to honor our family!
Our cute little family next to the "Y". Congrats Brigham/Daddy, we love you!
I bought Lydia a new toy that would hopefully entertain her a little longer during the graduation and this little graduation owl was cute and fit the occasion. She really enjoyed it :)
Congrats on all your hard work Brigham, you've come so far and I know you'll do great things. I hope you find your passion and enjoy doing whatever you do as you work hard. I am excited to take the ride with you and work together on the rest of our lives! Love you!
