Emerson's Graduation

We've been married almost 9 years and we are happy to report that we've fulfilled our 10 year plan/goals--well, actually in September (same month as our 9th Wedding Anniversary) we will have the goals completed by having our third baby, thus achieving our goal of having three children to complete our family.

One of the latest goals to be accomplished was Emerson's completing his Master's Degree.  It's been a very busy two years as he's worked full time and gone to school every other weekend--half day Fridays and 12 hours Saturdays with countless hours of homework and group studies.  We knew when we got married that Emerson's education was very important to us.  Everything just fell into place with him going back to get his Global MBA from Thunderbird, we feel the Lord's had was in it.

His graduation was held at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort and we were blessed to have my parents and Lizsett and her family there with us.  We stayed at the resort for a few days and celebrated both Emerson's graduation together as well as Bryan's 2nd Birthday.

Here are some pictures from those few days:

The day after Emerson's Graduation we all drove to San Diego to continue our celebration.  We went to Sea World, the Mormon Battalion Museum, and the Beach.  It was so much fun to spend time with the family and just relax after such a hectic schedule.  We didn't get pictures of the beach on our camera because the battery ran out, I'll need to upload those off my phone, but here are some of the other pictures.
