A big portion of my trip was to see my lovely neice, Elizabeth, graduate high school.
Isn't amazing how homogeneous those commencement ceremony speeches can be. The funny part was while the speaker was expounding how different the future will be and how much technology will affect their lives, there were the students sending text messages on their cell phones complaining how much that they just wanted the speaker to HURRY UP!
Anyway it was really a great time and I am so glad that I came.
