But first some pictures that began our journey:
They day before we left for Great Falls, Lucy was completely oblivious to the fact that she would have to ride in the car. There was a visitor to my bed who completely took over the entire bed, and I felt random and snapped a picture of myself in the mirror on my bedroom door.
After work that day we left for Great Falls where my in-laws live and where my plane was taking off. The next morning I was at the airport and ready to go for my 6:00 a.m. flight- FIRST CLASS BABY! My first time ever flying in first class and it. was. awesome. Before we left I saw the sunrise and it was pretty much one of the best days ever. I flew Great Falls to St. Paul, St. Paul to Cincinnati and Cincinnati to Richmond. The day actually went really fast and the longest layover I had was 45-minutes. The second I got off the plane in Richmond and saw Jeff it was such a relief. So good to see that man. Jeff had to finish up some paperwork with his class so he dropped me off at the housing facility where he'd been living the last four months and I just relaxed. We went out to dinner at a favorite Mexican restaurant of his called Los Bandidos and I had a Marga-rona. After dinner we freshened up and met some people at a bar on the base called The Hideaway. There was lots of conversation and karaoke. Jeff had to finish packing up his room so we left early.
The next morning was crazy. Jeff had to be up and ready to go by 7:00 a.m. and dropped off for his rehearsal. I had to go back and load the rest of his stuff into the car and then get myself ready and out the door by 10:00 a.m.
The graduation was really nice and I was and still am so proud of my husband. They had a nice celebration after for all of the graduates and their families before everyone busted out of there faster than a chicken in a room full of coyotes (Interesting thing I just did there).
