Preston's graduation!!!

It's finally here! Preston's graduating from the University of Utah with a Bachelor of Art in Business Management! He officially finishes in August, but got to walk with his class in May. I am so proud of him! It has been a long road for our family with him working full time and going to school full time, and I am so grateful for his hard work and dedication!

The speaker for the University was Ambassador Huntsman. He gave such a wonderful talk.

Right after the morning commencement for the whole University.

Preston and his parents

The happy graduate. My dad bought him this real lei. It was flown in from Hawaii the night before. It smelled so yummy!

Preston and my family.

The Foster's. After taking pictures we headed off to Gateway to go shopping and then to California Pizza Kitchen, one of Preston's favorite restaurants for lunch, where we met up with his sister and her husband.

April and Nate were able to come to the College of Business graduation. They didn't have any speakers since there were so many graduating and each college is only allowed an hour and a half for their commencement. They ended up reading over 700 names that took up the entire hour and a half!

Preston with his diploma... I remember being so disappointed at my graduation, when there wasn't an actual diploma inside!

Preston's Uncle Matt came for the College of Business Commencement

Since the College of Business Commencement went until late that night, we had Preston's graduation party the next day. We were so grateful that so many of our close friends and family came. It made for such a special evening.
