WELCOME HOME DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

September 1, 2007

The count down was finally over!!! Daddy was coming home!!!! Mom, Iain and Jessica picked us up and we headed down to the airport. When we got there his plane had just landed so the wait wasn't going to be to long before we saw Him for the 1st time in over a month!!!! Jack was pretty grumpy waiting he thought he was going to be there already when we got to the airport. I was so excited I was like a little girl. My stomach had knots in it. I just couldn't wait! When he finally came up those stairs and we saw him for the 1st time I got all teary eyed and Jack screamed in excitement. I put him over the waiting gate and he ran to him and said "DAAAADDDDDYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!" They just hugged it was awesome! (Mom has pictures of there Reunion I will post later!) We left the airport and went to the Denver Aquarium which was awesome and we all enjoyed, then back to Fort Collins. But 1st we stopped at a Pizza Place in Windsor to get lunch. Then we went home and just hung out as a family for the evening. It was so great to have him home.

We went out to breakfast with Ryan's Dad a Bob at the Breakfast Club. Then we stopped by Mom and Iain's to visit for a little bit. Then we were off to Kohls to get Ryan some new jeans for work and then Bed Bath and Beyond to get a wedding gift for our friends Mike and Erin. Came home and got ready for the wedding. It was a beautiful wedding. They had it at the Ellis Ranch in Loveland. The ceremony was outside and then the reception was inside. It was a night filled with dancing great food and lots of friends. Jack made a new girlfriend named Mazzy she is about 6-7ish. They played and danced the night out!

We had a lazy day. Just hung around the house Ryan and Gillian took a nap together. So cute. We just tried to get in as much family time as we could. Then we went out to Jackson's for lunch with our friends Jim, Beth and Jason. Then off to the airport to drop Ryan off! I was all teary eyed the whole way down there then when he hugged and kissed me is when I lost it. He just held me and said that it will just make it that much better when we do live together again. After we left the airport I took the kids to Sonic to get dinner. That was fun. While we sat in the car eating dinner and watching planes head out. Jack would say "Good Bye Daddy I love you!" every time he saw a plane. So sweet!
