Oh, what a lovely weekend we had!
We were visited by The Boss and Ma Nielson, who treated us to dinner and dessert at Carino's before Marcus's pinning ceremony Friday night.
Then Saturday morning we woke up early and went to the boys graduation from the Nursing Program.
I felt a lot like I was in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry--all the professors in their fancy gowns and hoods, it was awesome.
They even gave Marcus a rose that he used as a wand for the rest of the day.
I thought after I graduated with my Bachelors degree in May that I would surely be done with my formal education, but those amazing robes really got me considering a master's program...Do you think that's why they wear them, to lore the kids who are suckers for costumes?
After having lunch at Craigos, we loaded up Ma & Pa Nielson's truck with most of our belongings and sent them off.
Sunday we feasted on Fondu and Marcus used the Red Plate.
While I'm not the biggest fan of the aesthetics of this plate, I do love the tradition that goes with it.
When ever someone is being honored (birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations) they used 'The Red Plate' and they sign their name on the back along with the date and the occasion.
I think the kids will like it, don't you?
As we were eating, we had visitors:
4 Teenage sized deers and 2 babies!
It was so precious. We sat and watched them for about 30 minutes before they leaped away.
Then we took an exploratory drive around the farmland of Idaho.
Along with one beautiful sunset, we saw a llama farm, a moose, a pony, two falcons, 10 baby cows, three long horn bulls, and at least 30 peacocks perched in the trees.
It was so delightful!
I think we'll be going on a few more of these before we hit the road for Arizona next week.
I hope your weekend was magnificent!
I'd love to hear the highlights!
