Our Graduation Trip - Friends Old and New

Due to lack of vacation time at work, our trip was quite short, which meant there wasn't a lot of time available for visiting family and friends.  However, we were able to combine some of the graduation festivities with making new friends and re-connecting with old ones.

First was Jeff's roommate, who graciously agreed to show us how his accordion worked!
We had a delightful lunch on campus before graduation where we met some of the girls that Michelle will room with next fall, along with their parents.  That was an absolute treat!  They're going to have a great time together when school starts again.
Brad's good friend from elementary school graduated too.
It was wonderful to have the chance to visit with his family for a bit.  His baby sister is all grown up!  (And my camera was malfunctioning and cut his dad out of the picture.  Sorry!)
I have no idea who the additional friends were, but Brad knew them, and that's what counts.
One of them (third from the right in back row) was Cody's brother, so her parents came down to Provo as well.  We love her family, and it was great to be able to visit with them again.
Our final visit was with a dear friend from the Tampa area.  She happens to own a restaurant.  We happened to be hungry.  It's a win-win situation!  And it turned out to be the perfect place to celebrate Brad's graduation.  We'll remember it for next year when it's Jeff's turn!
