A few years ago there was a family in our church who graduated from dental school and blessed their new baby in the same weekend.
They had lots of friends and family in town, and I thought it was the most wonderful thing ever!
As soon as we found out Calvin was due in April, I thought of this family and was SO excited to copy them. Of course, things got a little shady, but in the end it all worked out and we got to have our very own graduma-blessing weekend!
Friends and family poured in for this momentous occasion!
Actually, just family.
(So begins the graduma-blessing photo overload in random order…)
Of course, Nate’s parents came from Oregon.
Dr. Barney with his family.
My parents flew in from New York.
Ariel and Jeff came from Utah and brought this sweet super Calvin.
Calvin was worn out from all the attention!
“Finally, they put clothes on me that match my high sense of fashion.
Let’s get to church so I can show off to all the ladies…”
This day was a long time coming!
“What is that weird thing on my dad’s head?”
Graduation was surprisingly not boring…
Med School BFFs, doesn’t Beth’s dress rock? (she’s the pregnant one..)
Nate bought this shirt the first week of medical school and never wore it once, on principle.
When I grow up I want to be a Dr. like my daddy!
I look WAY better in scrubs than he does!
