Uncle David's Graduation Weekend

My youngest brother David graduated from Saint Louis University this Spring. The entire family, and a lot of our extended family, traveled to Saint Louis to celebrate. It is still hard for me to believe that my baby brother David is entering the working world. I remember vividly when he was born!

Addie did well on the trip to Missouri, despite a nearly 2-hour flight delay that forced us to arrive after 11 pm. Of course she didn't sleep a wink on the plane! David did a great job of planning the weekend - picking restaurants and activities that would be fun for us all to do.

One of the highlights was a restaurant located right on a large lake in Saint Louis' version of Central Park. The lake had beautiful ducks that were quite friendly and up for feeding. Addie wanted to jump right in after her new friends, but luckily Papa held her back!
Addie also enjoyed an Italian dinner on "The Hill." As you can see from the photos, she helped her self quite nicely to a full plate of spaghetti!
All in all, it was a really nice weekend and a tribute to both David's hard work and my parents' generosity. Four children through college - I guess now they will be able to spend money where they want instead of always saving for us!
