Post Graduation and Milly's visit

Milly was able to stay with us for a week after graduation. She made us lots of delicious food and we ate out a lot too. I was trying really hard to pay attention to how she cooked things, but still need more lessons! One day Milly, Ruby and I took a trip to town and went shopping. I think we were gone a total of 8 hours! Talk about shopping til you drop! Ruby did awesome the whole time. Milly bought Ruby the cutest Easter dress and we even bought matching jeans! We ate at Nordstrom's Cafe, one of my favorite places to eat, and See's candy for dessert! We had a blast!
We went on runs every morning where we picked guavas from the trees. so yummy! We went to the beach and swam and soaked up all the sun we could while Brian was out of school. We also went on a hike. Thanks to Lindsay Raynor who watched Ruby so we could go. We went up to Laie Falls. It was the perfect day for a hike. We woke up early and got to the falls and swam around with not another soul in sight.
On our way to take Milly to the airport we stopped to walk up to the lighthouse. While walking we stopped to observe the whales that were playing right next to the cliff. They were so loud! I loved just sitting there and listening to them!
We sure were sad to see her go but we had fun while she was there. :)

So happy to see a new post from you! Sounds like you had some good, busy fun. I love the last picture of Ruby in her dress with her tongue hanging out. That's Carter's new thing to do in pictures these days.
