"A Prom, Two Graduations, and an Anniversary"

The past five weeks have been so crazy and I haven't kept up with my blogging, so this post is a biggie. I'm going to get all caught up on what has been happening with us. First of all, May brought Prom time and Kelsey went to her last official high school dance.

She wanted a short dress this time. Doesn't she look beautiful.

Here she is with her date, Chris Russell. They had a great time together. It was a great way to cap off her high school experience.

Next on the agenda was Wade's graduation from the University of Utah. He graduated May 8 with a bachelor's degree in Economics. Funny thing, his major was supposed to graduate at 11 in the morning with the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences )weird) but no one bothered to tell him that so we all attended the David Eccles College of Business Graduation that night at 6:45. Wade's name wasn't listed in the program and we had a few tense moments, but no worries. They just read his name and his major like nothing happened. Apparently, you can walk at any commencement. There was one Family and Consumer Science major who graduated in Wade's ceremony. Go figure - just pick the date and time that is most convenient for you and your family I guess!!!

Congratualtions Wade! Now it's on to graduate school!

A few weeks later it was Kelsey's turn. She graduated from LDS Seminary on June 2. Grandpa and Grandma Dalton were on hand.

Two days later, Kelsey graduated from Viewmont High School with honors. Kelsey we are so proud of you!

On June 5th, my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. On June 13, the whole family met at Maddox Restaurant for a celebration party. We enjoyed a delicious dinner, a fun program, yummy cake, and family togetherness.

With the "Golden Couple"

Since Mom and Dad are not the silver platter type, we made them a photo book with pictures from their childhoods, wedding pictures, and pictures of the family through the years. They loved looking through the book and can't wait to show it to their friends.

Their anniversary cake

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!
Here's to many more.

Yay! Congrats to Kelsey, Wade, and Grandma and Grandpa! I LOVED Kelsey's dress, so cute! Is it weird that I also loved the anniversary cake? I think it is cute...maybe that is the diet talking?

What a great post, I love all the pictures! Sounds like you guys have been plenty busy lately! I should've worn a short dress to prom, it would've been so much easier to move in, and she looks really cute in it!
