Michael graduated with his bachelors in Psychology!!!
He refused to get all dressed up in cap and gown, to wait for hours to shake some random person's hand. I guess I can understand the reasoning behind the choice, but man I wanted pictures!! It kinda doesn't feel real, I need closure.
I guess the closure doesn't really help anything because he'll be back in school in a few months for about 5 more years :) He better walk then!
I forgot to mention that back in March we got accepted into the GRAD Program at the U!!! What a relief! We feel so blessed that we don't have to leave this area. I just love my job so much, I can't imagine ever having to leave it. Plus we get to stay close to family.
I finally needed a get away somewhere warm. So we headed down South to St. George to visit with Rach and Cait (my sister-in-laws) and go camping. We had such a blast! This was my kind of camping*
Keep in mind my family NEVER went camping. The only camping I've done was about 3 different times at Girls Camp. I was pleasantly surprised, I think I could do this more often, we can slowly lengthen the days out... slowly.
After setting up camp we looked of yonder and challenged ourselves to climb the red cliffs. I'm not going to lie, it was super easy to climb. I'm a new fan of red rock!
Luckily I got my Eyelash Extensions done, not a lick of eye makeup on!!
The rocks were to die for, It's so crazy to think how old they probably are.
Look at the length of that thing!!!
Turns out it's no regular Lizard.... It's officially....
A GILA MONSTER
A heavy, slow-moving lizard, up to 60 centimetres (2.0 ft) long, the Gila monster is the only venomous lizard native to the United States and one of only two known species of venomous lizards in North America, the other being its close relative, the Mexican beaded lizard (H. horridum). Though the Gila monster is venomous, its sluggish nature means that it represents little threat to humans.
Pretty cool claim to fame, Kelly my father-in-law is so jealous. I feel pretty awesome.
The trip was a hit!! I sure love my lil Michael, I'm so blessed to have him!!!
