It was the first time Lydia or I or Adam (of course) had gotten the opportunity to be a part of one of these ceremonies, and I highly recommend it. There were sixty new U.S. citizens that day, from the middle east, central and south America, Europe, Africa, the far east... I think the only continents we missed were Australia and Antarctica. It's great to see the melting pot in person.
Non-baby book firsts for Adam:
- First walk in a crosswalk
- First time in a courtroom
- First naturalization ceremony
- First time through security (but around the metal detector in the stroller)
