The boys and I took a field trip this afternoon…not your typical museum or historical building, though.  We went to welcome my nephew home from his (second) tour in Iraq.

IMG_3212 The armory went all out for the event, the USO provided food, passed out flowers and flags and just overall it was exciting.

IMG_3215 The local media was there in full force…but gesh, Channel 3 dude and cameraman, you are totally blocking our view!

IMG_3217 My camera totally blurred out on me, but I caught a shot of my nephew as he entered the building.  (And I’m with you, if I use the word “totally” one more time, I’ll scream!)

IMG_3221 The mayor and commander tortured the guys a while longer and finally they were dismissed.

IMG_3222 So good to have him home.  :)  If you click on the pic, you’ll see my boys express their joy in their own special ways lol. 


  1. Wow, you must be so proud of him!

  2. That's wonderful that he's home. This is one great field trip.


Thanks for stopping by!
