USU Robins Awards 2009

When you are a parent there are times when you are truly in awe of your children. For instance, 2 years ago Cassandra graduated from USU with a degree in Biology. I could never get a science degree of that I'm quite certain. At the same time, Bob received 2 masters degrees. And just recently, it was Dione's turn. She was a finalist for Woman of the Year at USU's Robins Awards. In the words of Ron Burgundy (The Anchorman movie) it's "kind of a big deal." The Robins awards at USU are like the Academy Awards are to the film industry. The best of the best attend the event dressed in their finest. Dione wore a lovely new silk dress from White House Black Market. Cassandra wore Juicy Couture (Jocie would be so proud). Both girls brought their fabulous Coach clutchs courtesy of a very good friend in NYC. Bob even sported a tie. Dean looked handsome in his rarely worn suit and I put on my best black leg brace to show off the new ACL. OK, so I had no choice on that one. In the end, someone else was chosen as the winner, but our family felt we had the winning finalist at our table. The event was spectacular and such an honor for us to be all there together. Thanks Dione, we love you!

Bob had to shush the two sisters many times
throughout the night, they still love to giggle.

Here is the family all dressed up.

Roommates Dione and Sarah...smiles all around!

A look at the desert and beverage. Mine kept
disappearing, I think everyone around me was
quite thirsty.
