There's More To See Than Can Ever Be Seen

Title of this post was taken from the song Circle of Life from the movie The Lion King.

We are home! We had a wonderful time! I have this amazing video that I made with pictures from the trip, it's on my desktop right now. I've tried for two days to get this nifty little video to upload to Blogger and You Tube, but it just isn't working for me. Not sure if it's my computer or the operator. I have an incredibly smart brother in law who is way tech savvy. Maybe I can get him to look at it when he comes in...hint hint. Love ya Scott.

I have so many stories I could share! I had forewarned the kids that they would have to take their shoes off at the airport, and we went over how everything had to be scanned. They asked a lot of questions and I explained about the shoe bomber and how all of this was for our safety. As we went through airport security, and we are putting our shoes back on, little Mason looks up and says "Did I have bombs in my shoes?" My hand flew to cover his mouth. I tried to explain that we couldn't say things like that in the airport, but not really sure he understood.

It was simply an amazing trip, and I could go on and on about it. My awesome video would be even better, I'll just have to post that later. Thank you Mandaly for letting us tag along. Love you!

Other News:
Friday afternoon presented itself with some very challenging moments, none of which I plan on talking about on here.

Father's Day was really hard as well. We decided to just stay home and be together. Normally, I would have sent the kids running upstairs to jump on the bed and wake Mike up with hugs, kisses and gifts. It all felt wrong.

I sat and watched a new movie for the first time in a few months. I decided to rent I Am Number Four. Mike and I had a certain way we watched movies. He would sit at the end of the couch and I would put a pillow in his lap and curl up next to him. He would wrap his arms around me so that if there were any scary scenes he could hold me when I jumped. I'm a wuss when it comes to anything remotely scary. Anyway, I jumped a few times during this movie only to feel alone when he wasn't there to hold me. I miss him.

I am so happy your trip went well! I can't wait to hear all the great details!
I'm sorry to hear of your recent "missing him" moments. I can only say that I hope those moments will bring you fond memories that will make you smile even as you grieve each moment/tradition/holiday that will never be the same. My heart and thoughts go out to you.
