How cool and how american it is to be at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego on 9/11 attending Adrian’s (Adi) Marine Corps Boot Camp graduation. We are so proud of our Adi – he’s the very first in the family to join the U.S. Military!
This is his platoon 3250! Adi is on the first row, second from right.
isn’t he handsome?! he got darker but he looks great with his “new” color and improved posture!
so nice to see him smile and laugh as he was too serious at first! we thought he lost his silliness that we all love!
with the crying aunties 🙂 ! we were just so full of joy and pride for our adi that we just all cried!
with his cousins who tried to make him smile but failed 🙂
with adi’s favorite cousins, aunties and uncles, brother, mom & step dad at a japanese restaurant celebrating adi’s graduation
he’s blind without his glasses!
francesca clowning around of course! she truly missed her adidong!
family “drilling” adi 🙂
it’s so heartwarming to see how arlo and adi so happy! it’s so apparent their love, respect and admiration for each other…
katrina and francesca trying to have the “marine corps” look! funny!
