Keith arrived home Tuesday night just in time for dinner. After a long drive from Alaska to Florida, he was pretty tired, but very happy to see everyone. The trusty 4Runner has successfully made another trip across the country. The speckles on his bumper are bugs. There we tons of dead bugs all over the front of his truck. Yuck.
Joshua, Daniel and Grandma showed Keith the wonderful Welcome Home Daddy sign the kids made.
Megan was excited to see Daddy, but I would say she was just about equally excited to look for Meow-Meow. Eventually the cat came out of the truck, and I'm happy to report she survived the trip just fine.
We went out for pizza. The kids barely let Daddy get a word in the entire night. They shared all their adventures with him.
Keith and I are heading out tonight for a 3 night vacation without the kids. We are heading down to Disney to do a little park hopping and stay at the Shades of Green. Early next week I'll post some pictures of our weekend. We are pretty excited to be vacationing.
Keith has some great pictures from his trip. We'll both post those next week, too. Things have been a little busy around here. We are happy to report that we found a house that we LOVE and will be closing on it July 25th. I couldn't be happier with the entire situation. I'm so excited to know that this is the house that our kids will grow up in. It's beautiful, absolutely beautiful. The current home owner has fantastic taste in decorating. We don't have to paint anything! We just have to unpack our boxes and throw a few noodles in the pool (Joshua's requirement, I asked him if there was anything he was going to need for his new room and he said just a few noodles for the pool! I could take a lesson in contentment from him, he's always so happy with what he has!). What is extra special is that we will be the third generation of Coast Guard families that have lived in this house. Of course, that would be no big deal if we were still in Kodiak AKA Coast Guard City. However, I'm not sure anyone here in Altamonte Springs really knows anything about the Coast Guard. I've already been asked if it's something like a beach lifeguard. :)
