Ben's Graduation

You might be asking yourself, "Where the heck did Kelsey go?" I've been asking myself the same thing. Nevertheless, I am back now and hopefully will have a firestorm of posts coming to catch up on everything that I've missed. Here's a post from a long time ago. The tardiness is for good reason, though, as I had to get the pictures off of my brother's camera.

Way back at the end of April, I had the opportunity to attend my little brother, Ben's, graduation from Brigham Young University. He graduated with his bachelor's in Economics. I went with my parents and took just Brinley with me. It was very weird being without Levi, but he did great from what I hear. Each work day I was gone, he went to a different cousin's house while Sam was at work, then got to hang out with his dad at night. Brinley also did well on the trip, considering how much time she spent buckled into a car seat...poor thing.

While we were in Utah, I got to see my childhood friend, Brianne, whom I had not seen since I was 9 weeks pregnant with Levi. It was so much fun catching up with her and introducing her to Brinley. I can't wait to see Brianne again!

Isn't that a beautiful orange flower I picked out for Ben?

Wahoo! It feels great to be done!

I've SOO missed you in the blogging world! I want to see Brianne again, too. Isn't she the greatest? She's actually here in Billings right now. You should come on over. Grab Lacey and we'll party.
Looks like a fun trip. Ben's so grown up!

I love that you guys have been buddies since you were born. Friends like that last a lifetime and are hard to come by. Bri said you are such a cute mom and you do it so naturally. I can see that in you even though I have never seen you as a mother.
