Boot Camp Graduation

Our soldier graduated from Army Boot Camp this past week.  My daughter spotted him right away!

This was us as we anxiously awaited to find Riley.

My daughter with her handsome soldier and Caiden and Cissy. She bought us all matching shirts for Family Day. 

Doesn't he look wonderful?


This picture was on graduation day with his step dad and mom.

Riley's girlfriend came to see him, too.  Riley was so well liked by everyone.  Now he will continue his training to be a combat medic. 

I'm so proud of my grandson, and look forward to what lies ahead for him. 

My daughter packed up a tent, decorations, cooler, folding table, chairs, food and drinks for a party.  She's the ultimate party planner! The guy on the left is a childhood friend of Riley's, who drove in to see him. 


Thank you for your visit!  xo
