Day one of the trip

This picture is not good quality at all, but the blue speck you see is the surprise. The happy soldier arrived at the Pensacola airport today at 3:30 p.m. and we were there to greet him and make sure he made it to the hotel. We actually pulled it off without the immediate family knowing that Soldiers' Angels made it possible for this soldier to come back to the states for less than 48 hours of leave so that he could participate in the ceremony.

The Star of the weekend, LEX. He was ready to get out and see everyone.


I kept Lex while they all went out to eat, and he and he made himself at home on my hotel bed.

It's been a long day, and it's almost midnight and we are just winding down. That early morning wake up call is not too far away. Stay tuned for the big ceremony tomorrow.
