Arizona Trip and Law School Graduation

Due to a little calendering hiccup, we celebrated Logan and Ashley's birthday a month early the day the Farnsworth's arrived in Blanding on May 17.  Then we hitch hiked a ride with them in the Farnsworth-mobile for the law school graduation trip to Arizona.  Grandpa Sam Burdick, Ashley's parents,  Kerry and Kelly, along with Anthony, Ashley, Sam and Logan, and were all part of the entourage. 

We had a great trip down, with nice warm weather and no wind while we were there.     

    We all went to Karen and Stan Reidhead's on Friday night for a big celebratory bar-b-que for Anthony and Ryan (his study buddy and his family) and for Loren who just graduated from ASU.  Mark was also back from Russia, so there was a lot to celebrate.  I also forgot to take photos there also.  Nonetheless, the food was delicious and we all had a lot of fun.

Logan and Sam kept entertained with their i-pads while we waited for the ceremonies to begin.  I'll have to admit they are more efficient in reducing noise than the quiet books we used to use!

graduation. Here Anthony is marching in with all his pomp and ceremonial

It was wonderful seeing Anthony and Ashley attain this challenging goal of earning a law degree, and to see how focused and attentive Anthony was in not only studying the material but absorbing and remembering what he was taught.  His grades reflected his hard work as he graduated summa cum laude and also was selected to work on the Law Review after his first year.  It was truly a team effort and worth it.
