So, how was the trip? What did we do? Here are some highlights the kids would want me to share:
- snowy walks
- family gatherings
- pigeon hunting
- old toys
- soda (or as they say in Iowa--POP!)
One of my highlights was taking Kyli prom dress shopping. My sister, mom, and two nieces joined us. Kyli obliged us each by trying on one dress each of us picked out. She is such a good sport.
Holidays with family is the only way to go during deployment. Even if the struggle requires tolerating arctic temps. No matter how much I love family and family time, this body can never live in Iowa again. California and North Carolina have spoiled me rotten. Snow is a novelty.
Now, we are back to 60 degrees...and raking leaves...in January.
It's day one back from vacation and I have a million things to do. Yet, here I am writing a blog post. So much better than laundry and grocery shopping and raking :)
Happy New Year everyone!
