Premature Graduation



(Stupid blogger turned this picture sideways. I don't know why it does that or how to fix it. It looks like that says '89, but it's really '09).


This weekend has been a very exciting weekend for us here in the Hone home. Ryan got to walk for graduation on Friday. I feel like we have been waiting for this day to come for years. Well, we have been waiting for years. It was so worth it. It has been a lot of hard work, mostly Ryan doing the hard work, but worth it. Ryan actually has just one more semester and then he will actually be done with the nursing program at BYU. We were very surprised to see the pharmacist Ryan used to work with at Allen's, Jeff and his wife Jo. We are so glad they were able to make it to the graduation. It meant the world for us to have them there. After graduation we went to Carabba's for lunch. It was nice to have my entire Dunn side of the family there and then Ryan's mom, sister Kacy, brother Garrett, dad, and grandpa. Ryan gave me his stole of gratitude and of course I cried. After lunch I "kidnapped" Ryan. He had no idea where we were headed to. I made arrangements for Bella to go to the Mayor's house for the night. I tried really hard not to tell Ryan where we were going. He eventually figured it out once we hit Dear Creek that we were going to Park City for the night. Park City was cold and rainy. Not what I had hoped for, but still beautiful no less. Good job Ryan! I couldn't be more proud of you. Here's Ryan's best friend in the program, Jacob. I don't think Ryan could have done it without him. That's also Jacob's wife, Amber, making that ultra awesome face! Love you guys! And of course, I have to put one of Chloe on here. I couldn't believe she actually let me take her picture!

Congrats' Ryan!!! And Ash too! It is hard work having your spouse go to school. A lot of nights alone! We saw the announcement at my parents, I asked them if they were going to go, and they thought they needed a ticket. I wish more family could have turned out for him. That is a great accomplishment!!! Way to go!

At first we thought the title of your post was premature ejacul . . . well you know. Then we looked more closely at the pictures and figured out we had what we third grade teachers would call a "reading breakdown". Congrats to Ryan on his GRADUATION (not the other word). We are excited for you and your cute little family. We're already counting down to next summer. Hopefully we'll get to sail the Mediterranean Seas with you guys (and maybe Lily and Bella can be snuck on the ship in some sort of handbag.)
