PACKED. Mom and I were there over an hour early, and the only seats we could get were in the nose bleed section, TOTALLY CRAMPED. At first we didn’t mind. It was just nice to be together.


And then we we sat down. And my knees had to be in the isle. THEN THIS kid came 10 minutes after it started and stuck his knees in to my back so bad I had to sit on the stairs the whole time. It was SO hot and crowded I wanted to DIE.

It was at this point mom got really emotional.


The program began.

We went out to dinner at Wallaby’s with the whole gang for dinner. Karl came too. It was so nice to see him.

Adam stayed in his robes all evening, even though Belle changed out.


We went to Costco to get stuff for dinner the next afternoon.  He was happy to keep his cap and gown on there.
