Road Trip: CalTech Graduation

The real purpose for this whole road trip was to be in Pasadena for Alex’s Caltech graduation.  A PhD from the California Institute of Technology is no small thing, and we really wanted to be there to celebrate with Alex and Alex.  Originally we were scheduled to be in Malaysia this weekend on a business trip, but our retirement took that off the table and we quickly put together this road trip.

The CalTech campus is beautiful and the southern California weather cooperated to make it a perfect day.  We enjoyed the ceremony with Alex’s parents, Steve and Linda.  The Alex’s friend, Nate, was also there with us.

No need to say more, except enjoy the pictures and CONGRATULATIONS ALEX!
