Bryan's Medical School Graduation in Chicago

We spent the past few days in Chicago for Bryan's medical school graduation! Bryan's family was able to meet use there, and the time just flew by! It was great to go back to Chicago for one last hurrah!

Boat Cruise!

The first night we were there, his school had planned a social event for the students on a boat that toured around the Chicago River and then out onto Lake Michigan. We even got to see the 1st firework show of the summer from the lake!

 This is the building we used to live in!

As you can see, it's hard to capture fireworks on a moving boat, so here's a little video: 


On Thursday, we got in some good family time!


The night before graduation, his school had a reception at Navy Pier! 


Graduation was held at the Civic Opera House in downtown Chicago. It was beautiful and such a monumental day! Bryan is finally Dr. Hinck!!!

 Best Buds!

With Bryan's Parents

Congratulations Bryan! I am so proud of you! You will be an amazing doctor, and I am so blessed to share my life with you!

Even though we had already moved to Cleveland, this weekend marked the end of a chapter in our lives. The four years that we lived in Chicago and when Bryan was in medical school have been such a BIG part of our lives. We decided to spend the rest of our lives together, lived in our first home together, celebrated many friends accomplishments and marriages, formed bonds with friends that will stay strong for a lifetime, and created a life together that we never could have imagined would be so awesome. We now start this new chapter in Cleveland. I'm sure it will be monumental in its own ways over the years.
