Clap for a fun day!

Today was actually lots of fun! We went to the local gym and had a great workout. Then we went and bought a used washer and dryer. I took the girls to the base! We visited the PX and all I can say is WOW! i was blown away! We ate there and then went shopping. I did something that I NEVER do! I bought MYSELF a new dress and new shoes! I am SO wearing them when we see my husband on Saturday. As great as all this was, this was not the highlight of our day. We were on base looking for where my husbands barracks were. It took us 2 hours and finally we met a guy who helped us. We hopped out of the van and started walking. We saw where his company was and started squealing (girl style)! Well, then we look behind us and see three guys running and one of them is practically jerking their arm out of socket because they are waving so hard. IT WAS HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May I just say he looked AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I swear the girls and I were running and clapping and screaming and jumping! Obviously he was not allowed to stop but he waved and flashed "I love you's". It ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then we came back here, went swimming and had a pizza picnic in our room. As we were eating, the oldest said, "Let's all clap for a fun day!" I thought that was a cute way to end the night! We ALL agreed that our FAVORITE part was seeing Daddy!!! We LOVE him!!!!

Your post made me cry. I felt like I was there with you guys. There is just no way to describe to other people the way you feel when you see your husband for the first time in a long time. I am so happy for you guys. Enjoy your weekend and cant wait to meet you all!
