What a weekend!

Man, what a great weekend.  Sure, there was a lot of driving.  I mean, I’m sitting in class right now after just getting home this morning at 0400hrs but hey, it’s all part of the experience.

The fam and I went up to VA this weekend to observer Memorial Day and to celebrate my step-daughter’s 13th Birthday.  On Friday, we made a stop at Arlington National Cemetery to pay respects to this country’s fallen.  It was my step-daughter’s first time and I hope she got something out of it.  I know that every time I go there, I get amazed even more every time.  It is truly an amazing place.  If you’ve never been, I highly recommend going one day.

Other than that, we just visited family, went to a water park on Saturday where I got thoroughly baked and lobster-red from laying out in the sun for 6 1/2 hours.  Good times.  Then we made it back home for some good friends, good food and good beer.

I hope everyone took the time this past weekend to pay respects to the fallen in their own way.  And to also take time to unwind and get with friends and family and relax and celebrate the unofficial opening to summer.  To those who couldn’t be with their families who are still serving over seas, my heart goes out to you and don’t worry, you’ll be home before you know it.  Thanks to all the family who made my weekend what it was and especially to my wonderful wife who makes life itself more fun than I could ever imagine.

I love you all!!
