Saturday was residency graduation! Everything was beautiful. We had the ceremony and dinner at The Ritz Carlton. Here's my photo dump:

After the ceremony and dinner ended, everyone headed back to a hotel suite the chiefs rented out for an after party. It had a balcony overlooking Bourbon St which was perfect for people watching! We partied the night away until we got shut down by security at around 2am...so we moved the party to a bar and danced til 4. We had the perfect time- everyone was in a great mood and it was such a special send off. Holy crap we're done with residency! So bittersweet.
When we made it back to the suite to finally go to bed, we passed this guy in the lobby of the hotel:
Picture this- a deserted lobby in a gorgeous hotel. No other guests or security in sight. This guy passed out at the piano, unbuttoned shirt, beads around his neck, room key on the piano at approximately 4:15am. Looks like we weren't the only ones who had a great night!
