Grandma Dear's 100th birthday

We went back to Provo for the 1st time since graduating in 2007. It was great being back there - we love BYU and Utah! Amazing weather and great times with the family.

We were celebrating my Grandma Dear's 100th birthday party ... and we partied all right. Happy Birthday Grandma!

Some highlights:
1) Walking/driving around campus (lots of new buildings/construction)
2) J-Dawgs
3) Brick Oven Pizza
4) Mafia at Bob/Jean's house
5) Seeing Krista's remodeled house (Grandma's old house)
6) Seeing and catching up with the family

We're pregnant ... and having a Baby Girl Dec 26

Emily and I are having our second baby on December 26, 2012. We are so excited and just found out that we are having a baby girl. We could not be happier!!

We are thinking about naming her Chloe Irene, but the name has not been finalized!

Wharton MBA Graduation

We did it! Graduated from Wharton Business School with my MBA and an MA in International Studies from the University of Pennsylvania! It was a wonderful 2 years, but we are ready to move on to our next adventure.

After graduation, we are taking a 3.5 week trip through Central Europe, before coming back to the USA to visit my family in Arizona and Emily's family in San Francisco.

We are moving to Dallas, TX where I am going to start my job at McKinsey & Co. as an associate.

We will miss the East Coast and being able to so easily travel to NYC, DC, and living in Philly.
