R and R

We got to have Daddy home for two weeks after 9 months away and we had a great time!

He was here Oct. 19-Nov. 4 and we made the most of every minute.

First, you'll see the shots at the airport. Believe it or not, I was able to keep the kids from knowing he was coming home and they were really suprised. One of my favorite photos is the one below where they see him coming in from the plane -- look at those faces! It's blurry, but the moment is sure there!

After a couple of days of just sitting together and enjoying each other, we went on a hike to Dripping Springs State Park in New Mexico. It was beautiful and we got to see true flora and fauna of the area -- in fact, we saw 3 trantulas walking across our path and none of us even jumped! We just enjoyed!

On to Anaheim, California and Disneyland for Cali's 4th Birthday! She got a bike before we left, but I think Disney trumped the bike! We all had a great time.

From there we went to San Diego and spent two nights a the Navy Base at Coronodo Beach. Talk about beautiful!

Halloween was spent at Sea World, and then on home. Before he left, we celebrated and early Thanksgiving and even put up the Christmas tree. It was just all wonderful!

Just a few more months and he'll be home for good -- yeah!!!
