First of all, I had the pleasure of sitting in an airplane in Denver for hours watching a snowstorm blow by and waiting for the plane to be de-iced. I finally made it to Dallas 7 hours after I was supposed to be there, but I was still happy to be in the great state of Texas!
Now, I love my family, but I was mostly excited to see my adorable nephew, Cade! Here we are with him in the kung fu suit I brought him from Japan!
I also got to go to lunch with some of my best friends. I have known these girls pretty much my entire life and it had been years since we were all together at once!
It was time to get on yet another airplane to FINALLY see my husband! We had been apart for 2 months and I was so excited to see him! So I flew to the bustling metropolis of Yuma, Arizona. While I was there, I was able to see him graduate from the school that has been occupying his time those 2 months. He is now a Weapons and Tactics Instructor!
After a few days in Yuma, we were off to California to spend some time with his family and friends.
Here is a picture of us with a few of John's friends: Rob, Andrea and Tony.
The last weekend we were in the States, we headed to John's parents' lakehouse for some family time. We had a major karaoke marathon! It was a blast!
The day before we left, we met our friends Robin and Shawn and their little boy Gavin in San Francisco. They were our best friends back in Fernley and Gavin was actually born 3 days after we moved, so it was great to see them and meet their little guy!So that was our trip in a nutshell. It was so great to get back home and see everyone, as well as a much needed break from this little island! Love you all!
