This past weekend was the last drill weekend for my hubby's unit (before all the training begins) Since it was the last one, some of us wives in the FRG decided that we wanted to do something special for the soldiers. We were very fortunate that a local Jack's donated sausage biscuits and hashbrowns for all the soldiers. Below are a few pictures of the breakfast:
The donated breakfast for our terrific soldiers!

Below are a few pictures of the bags. The staff at Jack's took the time to write a special note on each and every single bag. How awesome are they?!? I must confess that when I got back in my car with the boxes of food I cried...it was just one of those proud patriotic moments and I could not help myself.

Also this past weekend, my hubby's unit had a Family Day at a local museum and park. It was a lot of fun...very H-O-T, but fun =) We started the morning off playing outdoor games, then went to the museum for a program, eat lunch, then tour the museum. Below are some pics of family day:

Jack and Wesley got in the humvee's and talked to each other from across the field on the phones.

The wonderfully yummy cake that Wendy (one of the ladies in the FRG) made! She is sooo talented!!! We are so lucky to have her!

Me with my little brother, Jeremy. In case you did not know, my hubby and brother are in the same unit and will deploy together. They both deployed in 03 (but with different units). This time they will be together. It's difficult having one family member deploy...and even more difficult to have 2. Lots of prayers....

Madeline with her flag craft. I tried to come up with a few craft projects for the kids to make to keep them "quiet" during the program. (It worked for the most part)
Jack with his craft.
Jason and I told the kids last night about the deployment. It went a lot better than the first time we tried to tell them. I will go into detail on another post though...just wanted to let everyone know that the kids now know.
Hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend!
