Ryan is finally home safely from deployment. Yay! 6 months and 1 day. It seems like forever and nothing all at the same time. It's a very odd thing to experience. We all picked up pretty much where we left off and by the time we were back in the hangar Ian was already talking to Daddy about the Wii.
Enjoy just a couple of photos from our homecoming. More to follow eventually. :)
A photo of the boys and I waiting just inside the hangar for the planes to fly overhead. Beautiful shot by Amanda of Kimberlin Gray Photography, even if it was shot at an angle that makes my rear look larger than normal. ;)
The boys receiving their first hug from Ryan. This one is SO sweet!
A friend of mine took this snapshot (her husband returned the following day on the ship). Please notice that both boys are holding Daddy's hand. They both insisted, as did I, that we hold Ryan's hand. None of us were willing to let go only a moment after getting him back.
