Baby Shower

Mom and dad surprised mom's brother at his baby shower in Kansas this past weekend. He was so shocked to see them! Mom was conspiring with the family for some time but managed to keep the secret. It was such a blessing to be able to celebrate with them. They got a lot of nice things and gift cards. Baby Tiana should be here any day!

Wedding Fun

Dad and mom headed up to Kansas City this past weekend for a friends wedding. It was so nice to get away for a weekend. They stayed with good friends and loved playing with their 1 year old daughter, going to yard sales, going shopping and eating out! Everything you can't do in a small town.

Dad was in charge of the swords. As the bridge and groom get to the last two people they lower their swords and dad said "The right of passage is a kiss" well the bride thought she had to kiss dad. It was so funny! She finally kissed the groom and was welcomed to the air force!

Dad's friend got the garter at our wedding and the bride wore it and that is the one he threw. We thought it would be fun for the tradition to keep going but a young kid we didn't know caught it so it won't be passed on anytime soon!

Dollar dance! Always fun!

Showing off Purple Pride. Some people kept getting them confused (it was dark!) but the guys ended up with the right girl at the end of the night!

Dad received part of his dates and he will be in the September class for the 9 month training. There is light at the end of the tunnel! However, he does have an 8 week training this summer and it looks like we will be staying here for that. Not our hope as we were ready to leave (we didn't think staying here was an option) but if God has us here until September then we need to be all here. There are not many days between the training either so we will be rushing back to the east coast in September.

We also ordered a camera! We got a good deal but it is on backorder. We have a lot coming up this spring with Adventure race, two weddings, visiting friends and new babies on the way. Hopefully I will be able to post some pictures!

Easter Weekend

Dad's parents came down to visit this weekend. Mom and dad surprised them with a train trip to West Texas. Mom drove out to meet them yesterday, then they drove back today. Dad's dad loves trains but has never ridden in one so it was fun to surprise him. It was kinda rainy and cold this weekend. There was even ice and small amounts of snow! View from the train.

Stopping by for some pretty scenery on the way home!
