Trip to California for Braden’s Graduation


  The end of May, I flew into Oakland and Connie and I went to San Francisco.  We went to our favorite 3 story Ross, went to the Cheesecake factory for lunch, went to Pier 39, and got crab sandwiches for dinner.  Then stopped back at the Oakland airport to pick up Brittany.  It was a super fun day.  I have the best sister ever!




My parents arrived and we all went to visit Braden at his job at Cold Stone.  We even got to hear one of his original songs.



Brittany, Braden, and I went to the “Taco Truck” where Braden got and devoured the biggest burrito I’ve ever seen.  It was so much fun to get to spend time with them.

It was a blast.  Braden surprised the crowd by performing a graduation rap (we all knew).  I can’t even imagine missing it.  He was awesome!    Congratulations Braden!  I was really happy that I was able to be there.

I was able to see one of my “oldest and dearest friend’s”, Karen while I was there. We had fun shopping at DD’s and having lunch- just like old times. I sure miss her!



A quick family photo before we left.



And a few games of Rock band to finish off a super fun trip…







I am so blessed to have such a wonderful sister, and I miss her and her family like crazy!  I am so grateful for my family, and to my sweet husband for staying home with the kids so that I could be there for that special “moment in time”.
