We had a really good time together as a family during our time together. He pulled in Thursday and that afternoon we went to Keanna's soccer practice. Sydney's not old enough to participate, but she plays on the sidelines and does the same things the older (3 and 4 year-olds) kids do.
On Friday the base hosted a party to welcome the carrier here. They had a petting zoo, pony rides, female Taiko drummers, free t-shirts, hats and food, and a band that was pretty good....the girls especially liked dancing, the balloon animals and Bob holding them upside down.
And of course, the pony rides ...
And a balloon daisy for Sydney, dog for Keanna and Taiko drummers.
