It was a good visit! We got into town Friday, late afternoon, and Andrew got right to work checking out all the "new to him" toys over Nana and Grandad's house. The weekend was packed with tons of family and friends! Two families that have always been real close with Trey's family were in town for the weekend. They watched the Tennessee game while my SIL and I went out for Pedicures. That was much needed!
Sunday was Trey's going away party. We knew it would be a short trip this time and wanted to give everyone the chance to see him before the deployment without going crazy trying to fit everyone in all week. Luckily, it was nice out and we were all able to spend a lot of time outside. The kids loved it!
|It may torturous for Andrew to stop playing for a second, but I wanted a picture with my boy!|
|These are Trey's best friends going back all the way to 9th grade. It's so great to see them all together with kids and all!|
|And here's my family, minus my youngest brother... he had to work|
|The best of friends lately... it's been pretty awesome|
|Here you have Trey taking advantage of not needing to shave :)|
|I broke the rules since you can't see Addy's face, but they held hands like this almost the whole time. |
|He could not get enough of this, which shocked us! He would of sat there all day if we had let him!|
Wednesday morning, Trey's parents had a playground installed in their yard. I know, right? These kids are spoiled. They couldn't get out there fast enough. I thought Andrew looked like SUCH a big boy!!
So all in all, it was great. Trey got lots of time with his family. His Grandfather even flew in for a few days, which was very important to Trey. He got to see everyone, really, and it all went so smoothly! (Minus our good friends, The McRoy's, who were all down with something and we appreciate them not sharing their germs ;) )
We are back now and still have a few days to enjoy together before Trey goes back to work. We're trying to take it easy, but starting to get stuff into storage as well. I worked hard organizing all the junk in the garage yesterday while Trey did a practice run with the stuff going in my van for the trip home. Tomorrow he plans to get the guest bedroom into the storage unit.
We have 27 days left together as a family and plan to make the most out of every second!
