    A good day

    We attended our son's graduation from Navy boot camp today. The ceremony was long, but fitting and well done. We got to spend the day with him, he had to be back on base by 7 PM and is off to 'A' school at 5 AM tomorrow. We'll get to see him again in about 6 weeks when he comes home for about a week.

    Was a beautiful day weather wise, he spend a good part of it with his girl friend, then we went to dinner at P.F. Changs, then drove over to a local beach/park and checked out Lake Michigan. Stopped for ice cream before dropping him back off at his base.

    Very proud of him...



    Was also able to shoot a couple of photos of a friends son that is a couple of weeks behind him that played in the marching band for the graduation. He was wisked away before we could say hello, but his parents were happy to see pictures of him.

    Congrats to all involved, and thanks to your son for his willingness to serve. I'd say you have good reason to be proud.
