My baby girl graduated from Michigan State University on Saturday. It was a joyous day for all of us. We drove to East Lansing and spent a little time with her before the actual ceremony. First with me, then with dad.
We went to Clara's for an early dinner. Here we all are inside the restaurant. My dad and sister came with us. My DD1 drove to pick them up and bring them and I was so glad she did. She told me he slept all the way back to his house when we were finished.
Here she is with her boy friend. They make a cute couple!
We met up with his family and all ate together at a place called Clara's. It is inside an old train station, very cool. Interesting story about how we ended up there. She wanted to know where we went when I graduated from MSU and I told her "Clara's, but it's probably not there any more". It is still there and she wanted to go there also! Here is our group at dinner.
I had the salmon and it was amazing! My DS asked me if it was necessary to take a picture of my food and I assured him you all would want to see it.
Then we were off to the actual graduation ceremony. It began around 7:30pm and ended 2 and a half hours later. There she is!
Can you see the letters on the caps? She graduated with a major in Fisheries and Wildlife. So they spelled out "FISH AND WILDLIFE". She is the "F" in FISH!
Getting her diploma
Diploma in hand...check!
Congratulations, college graduate! We are so proud of you. Now go out and take the world by storm.
