It's a New Day

It's a new day today and it's beautiful. I'm guessing it's in the 60's. The guys aren't home from wrestling yet, but should be soon, then we're off to enjoy the festitivies here on post. April is the Month of the Military Child. They always do a celebration. BBQ, Jump House, Bull Riding, Arts, and Crafts, etc. So I'm ready for them to get home! Last night when Chad got home we went and released 9 balloons celebrating Jordyn's 9th birthday and had 9 flowers tied to them. Jacob picked out a Red Rose, Jack a Yellow Rose, me a Pink Rose, and Chad picked the Purple and White Carnation (purple was her favorite color). We then went out to eat at a Greek Restuarant that's just down the road from us. It was WONDERFUL. All 4 of us enjoyed our meals, the atmosphere was wonderful. We came home and I jumped in a shower, then the boys got ready for bed and Chad and I relaxed for a while.

I found this little survey over at My life as a transplanted Yankee (Traci's).
