I'm Leaving On a Jet Plane...

Hello everyone.  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend; we sure did. Lots of cooking, baking, and activities this past weekend which I look forward to sharing with you this week.

The daddy arrived home from Washington, D.C. on Friday afternoon. The little ones were so very excited to pick him up from the airport. Unlike departure, we didn't park and enter the airport, rather we just pulled into the parking garage and Daddy met us with his luggage. (Departure was a bit hectic managing the run-away preschooler and my husband thought it might be easiest for us to not exit the minivan!)

Just a couple of cute shots at departure and arrival.

P.S. My husband took the "good" camera with him to Washington, D.C. and left me with our very first "point and shoot". As you can see from the departure images, it was on its last leg. It didn't last the first week my husband was gone and I ended up purchasing a new "point and shoot", thus the arrival/restaurant photos.

Benjamin insisted on taking his Fisher Price airplane with us to the airport.

At security before Daddy had to board.

Goodbyes are always the hardest.

Last minute hugs.

So excited to pick up Daddy from the airport.
Captivated by Daddy!

All smiles from the backseat.
Luke gets some Daddy love at the restaurant.


  1. Hi Val,

    Love the departure and arrival pictures! They are awesome!!! I have missed you lots. Hoping all is well for you and yours! They kids are all just as precious as can be!

    Thank you for the prayers for all of us. It's been tough, but I know God is getting me through. It means so much that you cried with me. We need to catch up more soon! Take good care of yourself and know that you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers, even when you aren't hearing from me all the time.

    Hugs and Love,

  2. Awe these pictures are so sweet. Glad to see he's back with his fam and the kids are so happy :)

  3. Glad Chris made it home safely.
    Looks like everyone is glad to having Dad home. I'm sure you are too.




Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
