As excited as I am to have Geoff heading home safely from Iraq, a teeny part of me is sad b/c that means that El and Grant are moving back to Texas! I've been so spoiled over the last year in being able to catch up over long weekends and such, so having them be so far away is bumming me out a bit! One bit of consolation: They're headed to Arizona for Capitan's Course in the fall and then will be back in North Carolina at Fort Bragg! :)
El and Grant came up last weekend for one last little trip before flying south... we had planned to go to the Smithsonian Kite Festival, but it was storming and rainy, so we had a nice lazy morning around the house. We headed to Tyson's and met up with Kasie and Marguerette for lunch at Olive Garden (yum!) and had a great time catching up with them!
El and I watched Twilight while Grant napped... well, we started Twilight while he napped, but the poor thing was overtired, so he was back up in action after a half hour! Later, Joe babysat while El and I had a fabulous dinner at the Melting Pot!!
It was, of course, not enough time to spend together, but it was such a nice treat to have visitors!
