In just a little while, our Ryan will be here (but the little kids didn't know. We kept it a surprise for them.)
How much longer until the big surprise?
"Why are we here? I have no clue but I'm having fun!"
Obviously, the little kids can't read our signs
The doors just opened again...does anyone see him?
I love my Daddy
Waiting for her Ryan
Wishing the doors would open again
Bedlam ensues after Jeff receives a text that Ryan's plane is on the ground
Our first glimpse
Bending down to hug Katie-bug
Group photo with lots of happy faces
Not sure who is happiest...parents or son
Holding hands with her hero
These boots were waiting by the door when I came downstairs this morning
And this coat was draped over the chair.
Sorry for the blurry photos. There wasn't a lot of light in the airport and I thought I had the settings correct, because the photos looked fine in the camera. Urgh....
Although it is hard to have Ryan in the Army and away from home, the bear hug he gave me at the airport is something I will not ever forget. He held me tight and didn't let go for a long time. Ahhhhh....it was the best!
The first thing he wanted to do was DRIVE. During basic tr*ining, he wasn't allowed to drive, so it's been six months since he was behind the wheel.
Yesterday was Molly's birthday and she has told me more than once that it was 'the best birthday ever!" Ryan took her to Bu*ld-A-Bear today to pick out a birthday present. She had so much fun spending the afternoon with him.
