PMA Graduation

After a year of hard work Ben graduated from officer's training for the National Guard.  He is now a 2nd Lieutenant and we are all so proud of all his hard work and dedication.  They had a ceremony for all the guys graduating... I heard it was nice, but I didn't get to hear much of it because I had Kyler and Bradley with me!  This has been an extremely time consuming an difficult process for Ben and he really did a great job persevering.

Bradley thought the music was a little too much.

Ben got an award for being an honor graduate.

We're all so proud of Ben.

Mama and I took the boys to Atlanta for the day.  We spent all morning at Zoo Atlanta and then had a picnic lunch.  Then, we went to the Georgia Aquarium.  The boys had a lot of fun seeing all of the animals and they were wiped out by the time we were done.  We enjoyed a good meal at Crackle Barrel on the way home... Bradley said he liked that place because they sell candy!  Thanks to Karah for loaning us her car so that we could all go in one... no one else has enough seats for everyone.
