Good ol' Utah

Near the end of April, me, Londyn and Sam said a literally tearful goodbye in Atlanta. He got to walk us all the way to our gate (which made it more dramatic). The next time we would see him was at an airport in Germany. We just weren't sure if it would be a few weeks or a few months. It ended up being just one month, but still a long one month. Any amount of time without Dad and husband is too long. We just wish he could have been with us while we spent that month in Utah visiting family and friends. Me and Londyn both got the flu and were sick a lot of the time, but my mom and dad took the very best care of us, as usual.

Court and Jett doing a performance at the Children's Zone at Gateway in Salt Lake. That place ruled. We could've spent everyday in there. If only you could see the whole sequence of this Bee performance

Grandma Scheid came to visit from Wyoming to see all three of her great grandchildren together at the same time.

My Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Toni made the drive all the way from Mesa, AZ to come see me, londyn, Courtni, Jett and Lyon (and of course the rest of the crew as well).

An amazing reunion and the first time me and Londyn met sweet Josie Williams.

After a month Londyn and I arrived in Frankfurt, Germany on May 20th. The airport there is a little different than airports in the states. You were not allowed to get to the baggage claim unless you were a ticketed passenger. Which posed a problem for me, my baby, stroller, car seat and 4 large suitcases. I met another Army wife going through customs and we were both so stressed about how to handle all the crap we had... but when I got out there, Sam, as usual, had pulled through for us. He had somehow talked his way past the guard and helped us with all our stuff. It was so amazing to see him after so long... especially right at that moment. One more reason, of many, I have the most amazing husband!!
