James is a college graduate…

…and more birthday shenanigans with Shawn…

Happiness is a warm Tauntaun

James received his honors degree in Political Science and International Affairs from UNH, and then joined the throngs of jobless college graduates. Yee-ha.

We had a celebratory dinner at the Mile Away Restaurant in Milford, which always offers ample garden photography opportunities.

The day ended with cake and prezzies at Jim and Mary’s house, where Shawn was the recipient of his surprise birthday gift from them—a Star Wars Tauntaun sleeping bag.

You know the Tauntaun from Empire Strikes Back—Han Solo slices open the Tauntauns’ belly so that he can store a freezing Luke in its warm innards while they’re on the ice planet Hoth.

Here’s an awesome re-enactment.

And here’s the real deal, in a foreign language.

My favorite part of the sleeping bag is the interior design of intestines.
