After breakfast we headed back to the Alyica and Trevors for a little while and then we dropped the cars off at the hotel and walked to the Huntsman center where the graduation was. It was a beautiful day and a great time to walk. That is good because when we picked Alex and Marie up the day before there were snow flakes falling. It was bitterly cold.
The graduation, as always was long and boring and we anxiously anticipated the 10 seconds when we would be able to cheer for Trevor as his name was called. It came and went so fast that we almost missed it. the stupid thing was that they had the graduates walk up and get their diplomas in a direction that put their backs to the audience. It was so stupid. I think I'm going to write someone a letter and tell them that if we're going to sit and wait for an hour and a half then we at least want to see their faces when they do it.
When I realized that we were only going to see Trevors backside I ran completely around the Huntsman center so I was on the opposite side where I could take pictures of his face. It was funny after Trevor got his diploma he headed back to the seats but then when he should have turned into the isle he went straight on up the stairs. Everyone thought he had enough of the place and he was bolting. I was heading back to sit with Lisa so I followed him out of the hall to make sure he didn't take off. Luckily he was only getting a drink.
Following the mandatory pictures and all we decided to go to Tucans for dinner. You've got to like Tucans, it is all you can eat meat. They cook all different kinds of things on skewers and bring them around to your table. They have several cuts of beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, turkey, pineapples (perhaps my favorite), vegetables, and a lot more that I'm forgetting. I was still full from breakfast but did my best to get my moneys worth.
After dinner Alex and Marie headed off to have their final date (the new Iron Man movie) and then have their final good bye.
Meanwhile we went back to Alycia and Trevors and made small talk for a while until once again everyone was falling asleep at which point it was back to the hotel room and a nice warm bed.
