Tulip Festival

Last Saturday following Liz's graduation, we invited Don, Laura and Nath to come up to Provo and go to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point.
We met and ate lunch at Chuck-A-Rama and then drove up to the festival.

Me, LaRue, Nath, Laura and Don outside the festival -

Liz and Gary -

I'm checking the map of the festival -

This is looking down from the main building. There are 4 miles of paths to see it all -

And now some flowers -

There are a lot of areas of grass and really cool landscaping -

Liz and Gary again -

LaRue, Nath and Laura taking a break -

The long walk started to bother LaRue's bad knee so Gary and I hiked back to the main building to pick up a wheelchair -

And here's me pushing the chair -

Now back to the flowers -

This trip we did not encounter snowy roads, but it was really foggy driving home -

Liz Graduation

Last week LaRue and I went to Provo for Elizabeth's graduation from BYU.
We were there for both the Commencement and the Convocation. The Commencement was Thursday afternoon with the Convocation on Friday morning.
Here's a few pictures:

The graduates are leaving the Marriott Center after the Commencement talks. Liz is down at the bottom of the steps.

Here she is walking up past us -

And with me -
