We turned right around and went back to Texas for ELDP (previous years had gone to C-Springs for NORTHCOM and the Academy which would have been better). This is Ft Sam Houston and it was really cool.
In the Quadrangle they have peacocks and deer roaming around
as it was Spring, the birds were full-on putting on a show
it was quite a sight to see
the deer were completely domesticated
I think these three are a little late for this lady.
look at the eggs
it was a really amazing thing to see
This is the old BAMC (Brook Army Medical Center)
The San Antonio Riverwalk
The Squad 3 Amigos
We then went to see the working dogs at Lackland.
they took volunteers to get bit...I didn't raise my hand
can't outrun that cop
Then we toured New BAMC
and the Center for the Intrepid
where they rehabilitate wounded warriors
an impressive facility
but I had to miss the rest of this trip to drive home for the birth of this sweet little guy
he was so quiet and observant, just like his sister was when she was born
his beautiful mom
almost 9 lbs
end of school assemblies for the oldest two
oldest boy of ours up on the back row, he did a great job!
finishing up Kindergarten...now it's almost time to start 1st grade
visiting their new brother
holding him for the first time
One of the former YW from Kadena was able to fly out and watch the kids for us so we could be at the hospital...she was a true livesaver for us.
Bringing the little guy home.
I then got to eat lunch at the cafeteria with the older two.
and our daughter's assembly performance
they had her sing that Oklahoma is the best state, so I asked her after if she believed that and she said no. So proud of that girl. So I asked what is, and she said she didn't know but it could be CA, FL or NY or VA...
He is such a good baby! We tell all the kids that they make it easy to have more when they are so sweet.
at the two week well-baby appointment
such a good big sister
and we leave you for now with Commissary trip with Dad
