All Kinds of Stuff

Firstly, just to let you guys know, 

we are planning a trip back eastwards.....very soon! In fact, we hope to leave tomorrow some time!! Thing is, we're going to try flying Space-A as a family. We're waiting on the AFB to publish their "showtimes" for the flights tomorrow. There's one leaving sometime tomorrow for the East coast....and we HOPE to be on it! We'll spend the next 30-ish days visiting round to families and friends, getting Ben reacquainted with everyone. 

In the mean time, here's some pictures and videos of how we've been enjoying our family in the last 3 weeks since Ben's arrival.

It's finally gotten hot enough to fill up the pool and get Violet in the water!

.....and me, too!!

Violet's learning to feed herself with utensils. She's actually way better with a fork than a spoon. Right here, this bowl of yogurt has had its way with her. :)

Reverting back to the most logical way of getting it in her mouth....her HAND!

Ben's getting better as a photographer these days, thanks to a new camera. Our old one bit the dust.....literally. Apparently Iraqi dust got in around the "waterproof" seal, and after taking some underwater pictures of Violet in the pool, it just QUIT. :(

Anyhow, Looking forward to seeing a lot of my readers in PERSON soon!!!! Turns out we leave at O-Dark-Thirty tomorrow, flying on a C-17 to the East Coast. YAY!

I don't know if we'll get to see you guys or not... you are MORE than welcome to drive to Georgia and stay with us any length of time though! We have TWO guest bedrooms so Violet would even have her own room and you guys would too. Just an invite. It's a long drive though (almost 8 from your parents house).

We will be in NC July 3-7 and July 18-21(or 20) - Stuart's wedding. :) If you'll be near your parents, let me know and we'll drive over or ask you over to my parents, ok? I'd LOOOOVE to see you again!!!!
