My Marine is HOME!!!
I can hardly BELIEVE I am saying these words! After almost eight long months in a far away land, my husband, father to my son and love of my life is safe and sound at home !!!
We picked Rich up from the airport last week... anxiously awaiting his arrival! Here is a picture of Robbie when he saw his Daddy for the first time in months!!
The video above brings tears to my eyes and the song has been on my I-Pod and one that I have listened to every single day since Rich deployed.
Here are some pictures of Rich seeing the family for the first time. Above he is with my Mom, Robin and my Dad, Ray. Below, Rich is with his Mom, Carla and his Grandma, Lynn.
Here is one of the professional photos that the newspaper took of our little family !
After seeing all of us, the first thing Rich wanted to do was eat some good old fashioned California MEXICAN food!!! So we went to one of our favorite spots in Old Town San Diego...
We had a blast at lunch catching-up and sharing with our Marine. I just couldn't resist taking this photo of my Dad with the Dos Equis Beer Man!! All of the waitresses at the restaurant were talking about how much my Dad looked like the famous; "Most Interesting Man In The World"! ha ha
WELCOME HOME, MY DARLING RICHARD! THANK YOU GOD!
" I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O MOST HIGH." Psalm 9:1-2
