I have been so blah lately. I have no energy. I want Justin to be home so life can get back to normal. This underway has been harder then the rest for some reason. I just feel empty.
I'm getting really excited for our trip back home. We are going to be very busy but it will be worth it.
Not much else going on here. I am going to see My Sisters Keeper tomorrow with a friend and I'm so excited! It should be a really good movie.

We are planning to go back to Washington for a few weeks next month-ish. We have a ton of things planned and I have no idea how we are going to do it all. If anyone wants to get together let me know. All of this stuff is not set in stone and we are more then willing to make time to see everyone.

We knew Justin was going to be gone this Father's Day so Landon and I took a few pictures to send to him. I also wrote a few letters with them along with what his gifts were. We can't wait for him to be home. Even if we just saw him it's never easy being without him.
I'm very lucky that I married someone who is such a great Dad. He loves Landon with all of his heart and you could see that the day Landon was born. Justin would hold Landon all night until he fell asleep and now as Landon gets older they have sleepovers in Landon's room or in the Living room whenever Landon asks. Justin hates being away so much but when he is home he really makes up for it. He really is an amazing Dad, and for that I am very grateful.
Here are the pictures we sent with him to open today.
Father daughter dance. He had no idea what song we were going to dance to. When it came on he couldn't help but get teary. It was the song he used to sing to me when I was a baby and wouldn't stop crying.
Landon and my Dad at the beach in South Carolina. I'm so glad that they get to come visit us every new place we move to.
Happy Fathers Day. Hug the ones you love and always remember what they mean to you.

Our trip was amazing! Erica and I have decided that every time the boys port in the states we will be going to see them. I guess I should start putting money away now for those random trips to come.
We drove 17 hours down. We got in at almost 7 am. Thankfully I called the hotel at around 2 am to make sure they would have a room ready for us. The guy was super nice and super helpful. Normally they don't let people check in that early but since we were staying a few days he said it would be fine. He even made sure we had the room closest to the door!
We got in, took showers and tried to fall asleep. We slept for about 45 min before the boys started calling to tell us that they were almost out of work. Nice. So the boys got to the room and we decided to go out to lunch in 2 hours. Erica and her husband headed to their room to take a nap and we hung out for a bit.
We went to lunch, headed to base so the boys could buy new uniforms, went shopping at the NEX and then went back to the rooms. Landon really wanted to go swimming so we did that for a few hours. He loved it! We had such a great time and what made it even better was that we had the whole pool to ourselves! Then we went back to our room and took a nap, got dinner then went swimming until 11 at night.
This is us at the pool the first time. I was already getting burnt after a few hours out there.
The next day we headed to Disney World. We went to Animal Kingdom and the main park Magical Kingdom? We had a lot of fun...but we will NEVER go back in the summer time. It was soooooo hot and the lines were way too long. Landon had the time of his life meeting a few of the characters. All he could talk about was wanting to meet Pluto.
Donald, Goofy and Pluto.
We went on a few rides but not much. The main ones were pirates, the tea cups, a safari and we also saw a Nemo musical (Which was AMAZING!).

I'm typing on Justin's laptop all the way from sunny Florida! The boat pulled in a few days ago and yesterday morning my friend Erica and I decided that we were going to drive. Yes drive. All the way down here. It was about a 17 hour drive in all. We were so tired when we got in this morning. We haven't done much today but lay by the pool. Tomorrow we are going to head down to Disney World for the day so it should be a ton of fun! I will try to get on and post pictures tomorrow when we get back. I have no idea when I'm going to be home since I think we are going to take our time getting back. So I swear I'm still around!!!

Since we have had a little bit of rain I have needed to come up with things that we can do inside and that won't make a big mess (rainy days are my cleaning/lazy days!).
I decided that we were going to do an indoor safari complete with binoculars.
Step 1. Cut the paper down to size (so it will completely cover both rolls).
Step 2. Staple (or glue/tape) one end of the tp roll to the paper.
Step 3. Put the other roll right next to it and staple it down.
Step 4. Roll The paper all the way around making sure you glue (or staple) it down along the way.
Step 5. Make holes on each side for string.
Step 6. Put string in holes and tie.

Hello! All I have is one movie review...but I have 4 for nooks!!! Enjoy! Let me know what you thought about these if you have seen/read them.
This one one of the best little kid movies that I have seen in a long time. It is a tear jerker so bring some tissue!! I highly recommend this to everyone!!
Bitter is the new Black!
This is such a funny book. I have laughed out loud so many times. She is a bit bitchy so be warned. I will have to come back later and tell you all about this one.
I give this 5 out of 5 stars!!!
The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
Good book. I love these books and I'm glad that I'm reading them. I LOVE the movies.
I give these 4 out of 5 stars.
My Sisters Keeper.
With this coming out in the movies I wanted to read it. It was a very good book about a girl who is suing her parents for rights to her own body. Very powerful, amazing book. A must read.
I give this one 5 out of 5 stars.
Handle with care
Really good book. It's about a very sick little girl and her struggles. I can't go much more into it without ruining it.
I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.

- No more snow! Just rain, and I love the rain!
- Sprinklers, swimming pools and slip-n-slides! Last year my neighbor and I made a 100ft slip-n-silde down her hill. It was one of the best times last summer. We are hoping to do the same this year. Until then we use the military housing pools and sprinkler park (and it's great because they are free!).
- Subfest. Here on the Subase they have Subfest every 4th of July weekend. It's rides and all that good stuff and then really great fireworks. While we could see them from the house, we love going and sitting on the lawn and watching them.
- BBQ'S! We love having our friends over for good food and board games! They will be more fun since we refurnished our backyard. Lol.
- Vacations! We love taking little (and not so little) trips. Most of the time we plan to go home for a few weeks.
- Camping! We LOVE going camping! We bought all new 20 degree LL Bean sleeping bags for this year and I'm so excited to use them!
- I love that Justin will not be deployed this summer like he was last year. He will be gone a lot, but at least I know he won't be gone for too long.
- PICNICS! We go sometimes during the spring and fall but summer is the best time. We like to go almost every other weekend during the summer.
- The food! While I'm sure I could make some of it during other seasons....who makes kabob's on the grill in 2ft of snow?!?!
- Family time. We spend a lot of time together while Justin is home, but during the summer we all go outside and play while dinner is cooking and we do a lot more little day trips. Since the days run longer so does our time outside.

When Justin leaves I read and clean a lot. I mean a lot! I'm on book four since he left last week. CRAZY!
Landon and I are doing good. We went to the park to have a picnic the other day and ended up going to the splash park (for the second time this week). Last Sunday we also went to the beach with Michael and the boys. We had such a great time. Landon flew a kite for the first time and was so good at it! Here are just a few pictures. I will come back later today to add more after I put them together.

Hello! It's time for Tuesday's at the Table! This week I'm sharing an old family favorite. We used to eat it all the time no matter what meal, Justin claims that it can only be for breakfast. It might seem a little gross to some but it's SOOO good I swear!
