Someone pinch me! Please! After a long 5 1/2 month deployment, my honey is home!!! Homecomings almost make deployments worth it...almost. Time stood still yesterday as we waiting in anticipation. Logan seemed oblivious to the significance of the occassion, happy to run around with the other kids. With lighting and heavy rain moving in, we had to wait it out a little longer than anticipated, but the moment was so worth it after they finally landed, canopies opened, and they waved us all through! Logan and I couldn't seem to get to Daddy fast enough. I couldn't seem to kiss him long enough, or to see his eyes through my own tears to really know that he is there, standing in front of me grinning from ear to ear. It took Logan the walk back to the hangar to realize who was standing with us. Once he realized it was "Daddy", Mommy just faded to the background and took it all in. I melted to see Logan reach for him and insist that Andy hold his hand as they walked around the hangar. Logan wasn't even a year old when his daddy left and my one true fear was that he wouldn't remember who he is. Logan definitely proved me wrong. Today they laid on the floor and played cars together while I watched in pure joy.
**A special thank you to Cara who, despite being sick, made it out to capture these wonderful memories for us! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Cara!!!
