Liberty Market

What a great Sunday surprise to get to do an impromptu lunch with 2 sibllings and my dad

 Wrong camera but these two men in my life crack me up with the non-smile

Just a pose

Go Cardinals

Right camera, still lack of smile

And ps would recommend Liberty Market,  Yummy vegetable sandwich and great desserts!


The name I gave our friendly neighborhood skunk I ran upon last night.  

Simon = No Bueno

Long summer

Words cannot describe the pride I have for Pvt McKay 

Officially out of training and on to the Army reserves and then NAU (ps with the two campus shootings today I wonder what is safer, college or Army???)

At ease soldier 
And the first jeans, make up and contacts in months!!!

Anxious for TP

3 failed attempts- send in the process improvement experts

Cage kickers family day


Handing out with Charlie Company and Pvt Mckay.  "She may be weird but she's smart as hell".  She's got the coin to show it

Graduation tomorrow - then she is home bound

Thanks Taylor

The college girls have received all kinds of attention for their selfies during the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game.  They should follow Taylor on Twitter. The use of filters, and the pose but not pose would have helped them in their overall shame.

And I do love a good filter (Chrome currently my favorite)

Discrete result.......

Sara's doppelgänger

CEM "it's not awkward at all that you took a picture of the Jimmy John girl"

Tarzan "yeah but doesn't she look like Sara"

PVT Delka

The last thing I said to REM when she left to go to Fort Leonard Wood was to find an ally, someone had her same value system and could be a trusted friend while she was away from home and from everyone who loves her.

When she first left and I got my treasured Sunday phone call I would ask if she had found an ally.  The couple weeks this caused a tearful REM so I quit asking (because then I was the crying one).  Early on she kept mentioing Delka.  I somehow knew this was the girl that would be the one.

I finally got to meet her at the basic graduation.  The ying and yang between this two soldiers was amazing to watch.

Fast forward to my routine face time with PVT McKay.  Not only do I get to talk to my daughter, but I feel I have gotten to know this one.  I  (because I cry now, geez) cant even get through writing this without getting emotional on how thankful I am that these two found each other!

This is one cool human!
