Getting there wasn't too shabby. The girls always adore the ICC bus! SO glad that we packed some toys in the girls' backpacks...they were happy in the terminal and on the plane. The day after we arrived, we had some surprise guests come to Fort Worth. We were able to spend a good day and a half with Bill and Jeff, to show them some Texas love! Waffle House was their first request. The Fort Worth Stockyards are a must for visit to FW! We made sure to go in the afternoon so we could see the longhorns walk down the street. It was awesome!

Not sure why the margins are messed up? Anyways, We drove to New Jersey during the last week of May to witness the third Jett graduate from Wildwood Catholic. We always grab a section in the balcony so we can have a great view! Being in St. Ann's (well, it's known as Notre Dame de la Mer now) always beings back memories... Katie sang the National Anthem with her friends Hannah and Trevor to begin the commencement, and she sang the WC alma mater with Hannah towards the end. As always, she was fabulous! They all did a wonderful job. Chris had to take Cate outside eventually...little Red Riding Hood (as my mom calls her) doesn't sit still. Ever. So, thank you Husband for allowing me to see the entire graduation! Lizzie's favorite part of the night: when all the graduates toss their caps into the air in front of the church. It's tradition! Some family pictures...missed you, Bill! Lizzie was very excited to give Aunt Katie a big hug. Our aunt, uncle, and cousins came to support Katie, as well as Elder and Sister Ross from the branch. We invited our friends and family back to the house for cake, Springer's ice cream, A&LP hoagies, and some fun times! And we laughed late into the night, taking lots of pictures and being crazy! By the end of the night, we were TIRED! Katie, congratulations on a successful four years at Wildwood Catholic! Your presence will be missed in the hallways, I am sure. I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished. And I look forward to hearing about your upcoming adventures, when you head west to BYU in August! :) Love you!
