Leaving, on a jet plane....


I know I've posted this picture before, but it's one of my favorites. And just maybe you missed it the first time around!
Tomorrow morning, the boys and I are headed in one direction, while Sam goes in another. We are going to visit my mom in Washington State (yay!!) and Sam is going to work at an Acquire the Fire event near Washington D.C. As my father-in-law pointed out last night, this will be the farthest we've ever been away from each other!
The boys are SO very excited! Henry especially has a really close bond with my mom, and he can't wait to see her. When he was little my mom lived nearby, and she helped out so much with him. She is his very favorite person to call on the phone!
I'm also excited to be able to see some extended family members that I haven't seen in a very long time. It will be fun to catch up a little and let them meet my kids!
And Sam....well, he won't be having quite as much fun as we will--but he does love his job! That counts for something, right? :)
I'll check back in with y'all (the Texan coming out in me!) next week sometime and maybe post some pictures from the trip. Take care all and God bless you!

Happy Mother's Day, and glad to have you in my neck of the woods. Hope your time is really special with your mom.

Well, the event went well, but I also think Sam and Russ officially lost it mentally sometime around 1:00am during load-out... Uncontrollable laughter is a sure sign. I can neither confirm nor deny that Jon may or may not have contributed to the situation...
