U of A College of Engineering, Graduation Weekend

My favorite son, James (he's my only son) graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arizona. I'm SO proud of him, he's worked very hard for this degree! My photos from the weekend are in random order, enjoy:

My son: James King.

So, James' dad and I happened to pick the same graduation card for James.
So many interesting smells from my house on my shoes.  
Gen's cat "Patches", she's 18 years old. 
Relaxing with a friend (not in the photo, because...shy), a beer and Top Gear after graduation.
