so far in D.C...

I have been in Washington, D.C. since Friday evening. Good news and bad news. Bad news: I have allergies and I am not feeling so hot. Good news: My entire family is here! My parents and my two little brothers from Atlanta, me and my older brother from Provo, and my oldest brother, sister-in-law, and nephew from here in D.C.!

Its been a blast so far. My family is awesome.
The reason for us being here: my oldest brother's graduation with a Masters from George Washington University. 
Basically, he is awesome.  

Saturday was ceremony number one, and instead of going, my 15-year-old brother and I babysat our nephew. Right in downtown D.C. Super awesome.

We took him to the American Indian Museum.  I saw a lot of people doing double-takes.
Baby, me, baby, Sam, baby, me, baby, Sam.
It was pretty funny. 

Here are a few pics from our outing:

[Yeah, I know, I have the cutest nephew in the world. What of it?]

Then today I actually went to my brother, Steve's, graduation ceremony. 
It was on the front lawn of our nation's capitol. 
Can't get much better than that. 

We were a little bit worried.
Why you ask?
The forecast for the entire day: Thunder storms.
We lucked out though! 
We ended up having to move our chairs away from the blaring sun!

Congrats, Steve!
I love you big bro!

[Sorry, this was the best one we got. Also, the Washington Monument is behind us. Above my head. Too bad you can't see it better.]

Stay tuned for an adventurous day in D.C., then my trip to Atlanta!

P.S. Before I left I went skating with some friends. much fun!

Anyone else do random things with their friends?

p.p.s Wow this is a really long post!

I hope you are feeling better!
It's good to spend time with family and friends! Such a warm feeling to know someone cares.
I have been on the road a lot these days. Visiting almost everybody :)
