Congrats Bryson!

Well....Bryson did it! He graduated from Cornell Medical School and is now officially a MD. When we moved into medical school housing on 1st and 70th street 4 years ago, I was sure that medical school would feel like an eternity. Somehow our precious time flew by faster than either of us can believe. We really loved medical school. It is where Bryson and I spent our first 4 years together and where we learned so much and in the process made life long friends.
Being accepted into medical school and then into a residency has left us feeling blessed and fortunate that all of our hard work has payed off.
Bryson graduated on May 29th at 12:00 pm. The exercises where held at Carnegie Hall, which made for a very memorable graduation. Following the pomp and circumstance, we had a wonderful dinner at Compass where were able to celebrate Bryson and and all that he has accomplished. Here are a few of the pictures from the very special day:

Daniel was so excited that his dad was FINALLY done with school that he tried to leap off the balcony and onto the stage. Good thing he had his two grandma's there. I am a very proud wife!

Daniel was very excited to try on the cap...he only has 20 more years before he can get one of his own :)

With all of our family that came in town for the graduation

Bryson and I opening up some of the gag gifts we received from the Richards. Some of my favorites where and ice shovel for the cold Rochester winters and No Doze (for Bryson's over-night call). Taylor and Crystal performing a dance to "New York New York" but they made up their own lyrics and called it "Rochester New York". It was hysterical!

I also want to thank all of our family and friends for their support. We could not have done it without you!!

We are alive....I promise!

Hi Friends,
So sorry we have been MIA for so long. Life has been nothing short of CRAZY these past few weeks. Here are some of the things that have been keeping me from blogging (just to name a few)
1) Bryson graduating from Medical School!!! Yaaah!
2) Buying a house
3) Packing up our apartment
4) Moving to Rochester
5) Daniel's 1st Birthday Party
6) Trying to squeeze in some family time before Bryson becomes a slave at an intern resident

So I promise when we get back to Rochester and life slows down, I will post some pictures and provide you with more details. I also am dying to see what you have all been up to these past weeks!!! Hope you are all well :)
