The Long Drive Back

My vacation has come to an end and I am on my way back to TX. Michelle came with me so we could knock out the drive quickly and safely. It was a long but beautiful drive.


 
 
Utah had had a few fires roll through.
 
Yup, we stopped to get gas in the Middle of Nowhere!

My Boy

This week I learned that long road trips with minimal stops can stress out my boy. Once in WA we stopped by the vet where he spent the night getting started on  antibiotics and IV fluids. He was a trooper throughout. He was back to his carefree self a few hours after I picked him up.


The hardest part of the trip was leaving my boy with friends while I take on a slightly longer work trip. He is such an important constant for me and to be without him is going to be harder than I thought. This is the snapshot I took as I left him and got in to my truck to drive away. Yup, I was crying.

Gettin' A Little Mud On The Tires

I enjoy playing in the mud and I finally fixed my lights so I can brighten my way ahead. While  playing in the mud, we might have disturbed the locals.

Playing on the Beach

 While playing out on the beach we found some one's leftover bonfire and figured we should stop and put it out. Need a light? No problem. I have you covered!

Cleaning Up the Droppings

While hanging out at a friend's house, I generously donated my time to help pick up the apple and pear droppings and get them out in to the fields for the goats and deer to enjoy.

It is all about creativity.

We took a little detour to Four Corners.

Moving the Team Out

Having joined the Army was one of the best decisions I have made. Getting to work with a team much larger then I have ever before this week was amazing. Pushing out the team was eye opening.




Oops. Not everything goes as planned.

Much Travelling

There has been much travelling in recent weeks. For a while, every other week I was not at home and was somewhere else in the world. Yup, the world. It has been fun but exhausting. I am eager to be home for a few weeks before my next adventure.

Dinner inside an old airplane in Colorado.

A really historic (forgot the name) tower in Kosovo.

View from the top of the tower in Kosovo.

Hanging out in Macedonia.

Still hanging out in Macedonia.

Creative Legos in  Macedonia.

Grabbing some dinner at the Varsity (family thing) on my way to Germany.

Enjoying the sites in Nuremberg, Germany.


I really liked this sign in Nuremberg.

Too Hot!

Today's award ceremony was simply way too hot on the black asphalt for an hour. Worth it, but still way too hot.

My Teammates

They are amazing. That is all. I just wanted to let you know how proud I am to be their leader as they continue to humble me with their work ethics.

They come prepared.


They can put away some pizza!

Celebrating promotions in one of my favorite things!

So many awards handed out to my teammates!

We keep tagging our unofficial mascot on our gear.
