Pool & Potluck

At the last minute, a few of us from the squadron decided to meet up at the O Club pool this afternoon and let the kids swim around a while, then we went to the CO's wife's house and had a potluck.

As the kids were swimming, we noticed off on the distance, a boat appeared. So now that the picture is uploaded, I realize you can't really see it, but just to the left of the island is a grey boat. We believe it is the one Nick is on....but I haven't confirmed it yet. The kids didn't know any different, so as soon as we saw it creep from behind the island, all the kids went running to the edge of the pool yelling "Hi" to their daddy's and waving. It was exciting to see it!

After the pool, we hung out at the Hagan's. She made sloppy joe's and we all brought some extras... we ate out back in their huge open yard overlooking the runway. As we ate, we watched 2 53's take a "birdbath" (wash the helicopters). As well as several take off and landings by P3's, a few jets, and a C17. Talk about great entertainment while you eat! It was awesome!

Here is a quick clip I caught of Addison and Richie 'making music' together.

My attempt at getting the three kids to look at me and smile. It didn't work out too well.
It was a great time had by all! The kids wore themselves out, and Addison fell asleep in the car on the way home. Trevor is watching a quick video, and I wouldn't be surprised if I walked out there now to find him sleeping on the couch as well.

We were supposed to stop by my friend, Julie's afterwards, but it got too late, and I had to get Addison home to bed. So we are going to visit her tomorrow....AND she just informed me that the commissary has rhubarb!!! So after our visit, you better believe I will be buying the entire stock of rhubarb and coming home to make some rhubarb coffee cake!

Also, upon returning home tonight, I got an exciting email from Nick saying he would be coming back tomorrow for another overnighter! Yay!
