48 Hour Trip

Phew! I’m exhausted! We just went on a 48 hour trip to Philadelphia to watch Josh’s amazing brother graduate from medical school.


Traveling to a northern city threw us outside our comfort zone, but we had an absolute blast.


Kay was a total trooper. She slept through the plane ride on the way there and back, and went all day Thursday without a real nap.  


She was a little confused by the whole graduation process:


and was proud (as we all were) to see her Uncle Jer graduate:


she passed out right after he walked across the stage for about 10 minutes:


Go Jer!


Then we had an amazing lunch at Maggiano’s with friends and family to celebrate the big guy:


and then drove a bit:

Congratulations to Jer!! Medical school is a ridiculous amount of work (I had no idea how intense it really is). Words cannot express how proud we are of him.

And now- weekend time!!! What are you up to? After we flew back in this morning, Kaylin and I went for a run and went food shopping. Tonight- easy dinner! Tomorrow, teaching and time with Josh and Kay. Sunday, probably a run and dinner with friends.

Congrats to Josh's brother! Medical school!!!

I know what you mean about traveling to a different region... I always feel that way when I go down South!
