Proud to be an american...

On Friday Adrian became a US citizen for his mother. So, I made him a candy gram since I knew it would be hard on Adrian to become an American. He is still British in my opinion.



First, we got there an hour early. Next, Elijah and I were taken downstairs to wait with all of the other family members. We were able to watch the ceremony on a screen but Eli was super loud (even Adrian could hear him and he was on the main floor). While our family members were saying the oath, they let us go upstairs to take photos. Luckily, I made a friend (her husband was from Sweden) whom I could trust to watch my stroller/car seat. Eli and I found daddy and took a few photos (they aren't perfect but oh well.). It was a little sad for me because I know how hard it was for Adrian to take the oath. However, many people were so happy to become a US citizen so it was neat to hear their stories. There were 55 people from Mexico, an 84 year old, many people from Africa and the Islands, etc etc. Overall, it was a nice ceremony but Elijah and I were glad it was over.
