A few weekends ago we traveled to Abilene for a very special reason.
To welcome home Captain Trent Brower {B1 Pilot for the AF} from a 7 month deployment.

Nathan and Trent have been best friends since they were young!
It was such a great feeling to welcome him home.
We missed the actual landing of the plane and then stepping off...due to an extremely long wait at the visitor check in. We drove from Dallas to Abilene in less than 3 hours and then had to wait in a 1 1/2 hour line to get into the base.
Understandable, no doubt, but we were a little disappointed to miss the actual "welcome".
But, he's home safely and reunited with his family and that's all that mattered!!!

Welcome home Trent! Thank you and your family for the sacrifices you make to keep us safe. We love you guys!

I don't have any pictures of the weekend other than some of Mason and Kloe playing! But they are so stinkin' cute. I even have a video of them. They were painting on paper and then started painting their hands. Next? Hand painted high fives!!!
