Happy Fall

It's been a little while since I've posted an update but here goes. Things are good here in Vegas. It's still warm but I'm hoping that the cooler weather will soon arrive. Fall is my favorite time of year but in Vegas you don't really get the sense Fall has arrived until about November. Anyway, the last few weeks have been a lot of fun for us because we had company. Dave's parents came for a visit the beginning of September and stayed for about a week. For me it was nice to have them here because they were a big help with Mia. I was able to get things done that are normally hard for me to do with Mia, ie a haircut, so that was great for me. Corrinne and Dave were especially nice in offering to babysit one night so Dave and I could go out for dinner without having to chase Mia around. Usually what happens is one of us sits at the table by ourselves and the other one plays with Mia until the food arrives. So needless to say we enjoyed every minute of our dinner and we also were able to go bowling. Besides, I know Mia loved hanging out with her grandparents. It was an enjoyable evening for us and we can't thank Cork and Abe enough.

In the middle of September our great friends that we were stationed with at Hill AFB in Utah came for a visit. The Dunn's and the Litz's, they are all at Luke AFB now. The weekend was awesome. It was nice catching up with close friends and it really makes us appreciate our friendship. The air force sends us all over the place but someone was looking out for us when they stationed us all so close together. We're hoping that we can get as lucky on our next assignments. We'll be keeping our fingers crossed. Anyway, ramble, ramble. We miss them and can't wait to see them all again. Lucky for us we'll be seeing the Dunn's over Thanksgiving in Minneapolis. Dave, Mia and I will be spending the holiday with Dave's family there. We're really looking forward to it.
