we are family!

You are supposed to sing the title post I put up. You know, "WE ARE FAMILY!" 

My beautiful little sister Sarah graduated from High School last month. It was great to be back home in San Diego :) It was also great to be surrounded by family. It was very exciting because EVERYONE was there, except my little brother who is serving his mission. Even my sister and her family who live in Canada came! Besides my little sister graduating, we had four other graduations this year. Yes people, that is a total of FIVE graduations in the family this year. As you know I graduated from the University of Utah with my undergrad. My older brother Brandon graduated from Pepperdine Law School. My other older brother Ben graduated with his bachelors from Fullerton, as well as his wife Sharley from Long Beach. Since we were all going to be in San Diego to attend Sarah's graduation, we decided to have a giant family graduation party where we all invited anyone and everyone. It was great to have family and friends all together to celebrate and really just to have an excuse to hang out. The house was packed and it was a great day, and a great trip home :)

 
 We had a Woody Pinata from Toy Story at the party. After it was all broken up we put the broken pieces of the pinata together on Evan haha :) It was hilarious.
I started to act a little crazy near the end of the night! haha

No babies were harmed in the making of this post :) haha
