I was so good to see everybody again even if it was just for a short time.
Yogi & KC now have a cousin to play with!

The architecture graduation was held at a much smaller venue then the rest of the colleges at K-State. I liked how intimate it was. McCain Auditorium is actually where both Ryan & Sally had many performances in there singing careers.
I created this little ditty so that I didn't have to post all the pictures but you get to still enjoy them. :)

Man, sometimes I still wish I was in college, except for the fact that they are taking finals this week. I can't believe that it has been four years since I've graduated. Where did the time go??
Apparently Wednesday night, over 3,000 students from my alma mater, Kansas State University, created a flash mob/rave at Hale Library.
"As the rain poured down in Manhattan Wednesday night, K-State students didn't seem to notice. Thousands, dressed in neon colors, carrying their glow sticks, or wearing costumes, gathered on the south ramp of Hale Library and as the clock struck 11 p.m. they rushed indoors and started raving.
The rave was organized as a way to take a break from the hours spent studying for finals. A break in the library that lasted fifteen minutes before the group piled outdoors to continue the party at the K-State Union." (Click here for the article.)
I had never heard of this before! My friend explained to me that it is when people organize large groups of people to show up at a specific place at a specific time via social networking a.k.a. Facebook. I guess it's all the rage! Check out a couple video's below. It made me wish I was there participating. Why didn't we think of this my senior year??
I wonder if my sister-in-law was there.... Sally??? She is graduating this weekend! WhooHoo!! I'll be seeing you soon sweet thang!
This video is from inside the library as people are jumping around.
This one's kind of long but they turn off the lights at the end and play rave music, too funny! You can also see all the students rushing in.
I miss the good ol' college days!!

I haven't posted anything about our furry children in awhile, so I thought it was high time. I had a few random videos of them I thought were kind of cute. They do so many things that make Ryan & I laugh, and I really need to get my camera out to record it. That's my goal this next month to get their hilarities on video for you. :) Here's a couple to tide you over. They aren't that funny but they entertain Ryan & I.
This is Ryan playing with Yogi who loves to get under our bed covers especially when we're trying to make the bed. He thinks it's so fun to play with us through the sheet. Sorry it's sideways!
This one is of our cats checking out our new Roomba that we named "Wallie". Which by the way, is awesome! I would recommend one to anybody, especially people with pet hair. Please ignore my voice.
I wanted Yogi to do what this cat did in the video below. However, he might have broken the thing under his weight!!

It sort of reminded me of the pigish status that I took pictures of in Sedona! It was so beautiful out we decided to eat outside in the courtyard behind me.
That night we ended up just renting a redbox and then calling it a night. We couldn't stay up that late because we had to wake up before the crack of dawn the next morning!
Ok, these next few pictures seriously had me rolling on the floor laughing. So of course I had to share them with you!! There are a few things that make me laugh about this next photo. First and foremost, Ryan's midriff is showing. Oh my good-n.e.s.s.... Then the look of sheer agony on his face and the fact that he's throwing up Rocky fists with no one around him.
This is when I noticed the camera and decided I should smile. I didn't want to look like I was in the pain that I actually was. It was so humid that morning because it was about to rain the whole time. It actually did rain on us the last mile and a half, which ended up feeling pretty good at that point.
I felt good that I finished just over a minute and a half behind Ryan, and that I could see him in front of me. This has just spurred me on to keep running and improving my times (plus hopefully not be as painful). Unfortunately, I've really been struggling with shin splints ever since so I've had to take some time off. I think I just increased my miles too fast and need to take it a little slower. Once I'm all healed up, I'll be hitting the pavement again.
Ryan & I in a dress that makes me look preggers! Oh well, you win some and lose some.
We got to enjoy a nice lunch with our friends before taking off to Rockwall to visit my Godmother, Pat, and Rocky. I was so exhausted from the run, I ended up taking a much needed hour long nap when I get to their house. Then I was ready to play some Wii that my Godmother just got. Pat was cracking me up with all her funny moves. She was pretty dang good!
I just love this woman! She has such a big heart.
Ryan trying to take on the talented tennis player.
We had so much fun that my arm was sore for days! Pat & Rocky really know how to treat their guests. Ha! They always go above and beyond for us. I just love them to pieces. I didn't get a picture of Rocky this trip! Boo!
