We raced back from San Diego, flung Katie out the door in Provo, and arrived home in time for Marnie's ballet recital. She danced to Stray Cat Strut with gusto.

After planning for 3 months, we hit Disneyland for one thrilling day. I used RideMax to optimize our ride schedule, which resulted in 28 rides in 14.5 hours. We rode until we didn't want to ride anymore. The Dole Whips were delicious and the weather, perfect. Because of the Give a Day promotion, we did it on the cheap. We had 6 free tickets!
Space Mountain for the third time makes Howard crazy! But we'd all be screaming in a few minutes. It was almost everyone's favorite ride of the day.
Paul is worried that Jack is going to spin him into infinity! And beyond! We all tried our best to pass out from the spinning.

There is no place I'd rather be than out there on a boogie board. On the last day of our vacation, we looked out the hotel window to completely flat water. I felt sorry for those who were coming to surf. We were packing up to leave.
Our first stop was the Mormon Battalion Visitor's Center in downtown San Diego. Jack was dressed up in period gear and sent to fight the non-existant Mexican Army.
Frazier drove this covered wagon through the broken concrete that is known throughout the area.
After an horrific breakdown outside Mesquite, and limping into Las Vegas, we gave up hope and rented a van to complete our trip to San Diego. We arrived at Tad's home at 8am instead of 8pm. He was so nice to us and let us sack out on beds and couches. But the pool was too tempting for some.

It was a Miracle. After weeks of hideous weather, the clouds parted and the sun shone on graduation. Everyone was astounded. Howard sang with David a new song in front of packed stands of parents and grandparents. Paul's parents came up from Salt Lake and we all had a great time together.

Calvin will be walking across the wet grass toward his diploma in just 2 days! The last two weeks have been so busy with Scholarship Night, Talent Show, Eagle Court of Honor, 5th Ave Theater Awards, and more, that we've hardly seen him. And because he has to work tonight, I have to emcee the Senior Memory Night slideshow.
