Camo and I just recently got back from a trip to Texas to visit my parents. We had a blast and Camo loved having time with Grandma and Grandpa Metcalf. It is definitely hard keeping a 23 month old busy and content on an airplane, but it was worth it to go see my parents. I felt so bad because he called my mom Grandpa the entire trip. I don't think he quite gets the difference between the two. He calls both of my parents Grandpa. I hope it wasn't too embarrassing for my mom when we were out and about and he yelled "come on Grandpa". Some of the highlights of the trip were going swimming, playing with cousins, learning how to say Go Spurs Go(Grandpa taught Camo that and J wasn't too thrilled when he came home saying that), reading all of Grandma's books, going wedding dress shopping with one of my best friends, going through my baby book box and laughing hysterically with my mom at some of the poems I wrote, going to the gym, going to Taco Cabana, going to Taipai, going to Whataburger(yes I have to eat at a lot of different places when I go there), eating grandpa's tacos, going to the park, and having access to a Sonic a mile from my house. Enjoy the pictures.
It finally happened. J graduated with his doctorate in chiropractic on December 16th. He also finished with his master's in exercise and sports science. It surprisingly has gone by extremely fast. I couldn't be more proud of him. What an awesome accomplishment!! He has worked very hard these last few years and I am glad he is finally done. Now onto the real world and finding a job. Hopefully we have some exciting things happening for us in the near future. Thank you to my sister-in-law who spent the entire ceremony out in the hall with Camo. It was right during his nap time so I think he was a bit restless. Here are some pictures from the graduation.
We got to know each other in a micobiology class during the 2006 winter semester at BYU-Idaho. We had met previously through a few mutual friends the semester before but J never had the chance to ask T out. Our first date was with a large group of friends. We went to dinner, watched a movie, then ended the night with a few games. We both agree it was the best date we had ever been on. After separating for the summer one crazy event brought us back togehter. J was supposed to sell pest control in California while T went home to Texas. J's boss decided to close the office J was working for and relocated him to Texas, 1 hour north of T. T still vividly remembers the phone call from J asking her what she would think if he came to Texas to work instead. She was more excited then ever. After the summer of exchanging weekends-J to San Antonio, T to Austin-we road tripped it to Oregon to meet J's family and to get engaged. We were married on December 23, 2006 and have regretted it ever since...just kidding! We have loved every minute good or bad and look forward to the life ahead together.
