We loaded up on the army bus at 9am, and off the Ruidoso, NM we went. It was a great bus trip. And a nice bus too. The kids LOVEd their goodie bags. It kept my kids entertained the whole 3 hour trip. The kids started off sitting together in 2's, but as the trip went on, we realized that there were empty seats, and they spread out. They each had their own row. It was nice.
I worked on my talk for today, and then even had time to design 2 WordArt packs. It took me the whole 3 hours. I was just putting my laptop away when we pulled into the picnic area.
We BBQ'd and played games and hung out. I think that the guys had a great time. Me? Well, I didn't know anyone there. Hanging out with single soldiers isn't really my thing, you know. And because Captain America was so heavily involved with the planning of the event and the execution of it all, he wasn't available to hang out with. I'm not the most outgoing of people, so I just kinda walked around and looked uncomfortable - LOL!
But, the kids had fun, the soldiers seemed to have fun, Captain America seemed to have fun, so I had "fun by proxy". After food, the kids got to do a pinata, which was a highlight for my kids. They just LOVED that.

The group decided that they were having so much fun at the park, that they didn't want to go to "funtrackers", the Mini Golf/ Race cart place. We just stayed and played hores shoes/catch/frizbee/cards, whatever the guys were doing.
VanDam and JoeWe left at 4:30, and got back to Ft. Bliss at around 8:00pm. After cleaning up, dropping off the supplies and such, we got home at around 9pm or so. We fed the kids, bathed them, and sent them off to bed. We were able to bring home most of the uncooked steak from the BBQ, so I weighed it out, bagged it up, and now have 12 dinners for myself! No ground turkey this week! Woohoo! We also brought home a dozen cinnamon rolls, some Oreos, and some of the most WONDERFUL looking carmel nut brownies I've ever seen. But, since I'm still hard fast on the diet, I'm resisting. Only 4 more lbs to go.
OK, I fixed the preview. Yesterday, I was giving out the "If love is a drop....." part, and today is the "If love is a petal", and yes, it's spelled right - hehehe. I was designing after midnight again. Bad me, I know. All spelling goes completely out the window at that point. And yes, I know this one isn't "Sunday" themed, but I'm tired, so this is what you get - hehehe.
