OUR BABY has graduated from the University of WI Milwaukee! Today was the ceremony down town at the US Cellular Arena! Please enjoy a TON of pictures I took. Hehehe, why not right? Also, Amber, Earl and I went to brunch with my parents, Amber's Grandma and Grandpa and it was super nice. It was beautiful outside, with the sunshine and we got some pictures at the Botanic Garden area.

The little neighbor doggie, Dora, came over to wish Amber a happy graduation and say Hi to Rufio. So there are a good mix of pictures from the day! We're so proud of her and I decorated her Graduation hat with a quote that expresses her major; Print Journalism. There were not a lot of decorated hats, so that helped us keep track of where she was in the mix of kids there. There were two ceremonies and hers was in the early morning. It went LATE , but we had great fun watching them all! Thanks for looking!!!!!!

p.s. have to tell you. the word verification is 'anest' very appropriate with your latest post (and love of birdies).
