Jordan's Visit

Hard to believe that our week with Jordan has already come and gone - what a great time we had! I think we were able to do all the things he had hoped to do...and then some! But we also had plenty of time just to hang out, laugh and work on our pool game (which still needs much work!) We did eat at the Cheesecake Factory, spent an afternoon at National Harbor and spent time at the cemetery as a family. Jordan was able to see some old friends - from the "old neighborhood" - on two occasions, spend a day with his day at the Marine Corps Museum and a day with just his sister at Kings Dominion and he and I covered some miles at the malls. He loves to shop:)



I love the relationship that my hubbie and my son enjoy - my two men:)
This picture was taken at National Harbor - just on the other side of the river on Maryland's shore. Lots of restaurants (unfortunately, the one we chose was less than much), cute shops and amazing yachts! It was the perfect place just to spend time together.



That afternoon - well, that whole week! - just made us all smile! Jordan was also anxious to get "back home" as he said:) It makes me happy that he is happy with the Air Force and what he is doing right now. He is still maturing and growing - like all of us - but he is a good young man.....that makes his mom and dad proud!

  1. Sounds like the perfect week. I am soo glad you got this time with him. I know how you feel too I think watching your son and his dad and their relationship. I like the relationships my adult kids have with their dad too. I am also glad to hear that he is happy with what he is doing and was anxious to get back. Makes your mama's heart happy to know they are happy with their lives huh? Have a GREAT week. HUGS

  4. Glad you got to spend some time with your airman! Tell him thanks from us for his service. My BIL & SIL are in the AF and it is definitely a sacrifice.
    Thanks for your kitchen compliments... glad you liked our paint color. :) It is Kilz "Cowboy Hat" from walmart. It goes well with Kilz "Spiced Sugar" if you need a cream to go with it. I'm just sayin'. ;)
