Best weekend in San Antonio...Sunday!

When Jenn and I planned our Saturday date night which was "Billy's Birthday Celebration" we thought Billy didn't have to go into work until 1400 on Sunday but that wasn't true...he had to be in at
So, after John Pierce and I went to church we decided to take daddy some protein bars, Gatorade and monsters!
We got to watch his flight do emergency evacuation drills out of the dorm onto the drill pad...
 The little specs by the "outhouse" looking building is Billy and his trainer
 This is Billy's flight and he is weaving in and out of their rows, yelling I suppose.
 Billy and his trainer walking to us.
 Please excuse their feet not in sync...they are babies?
 I love these two boys! 
This makes my heart melt.

We really love going to daddy's work.  I'm so fascinated with what he does and the trainees and everything the TI's have to do.  I really wish I could put on a uniform and play trainee for a day just to see what they do!  We also love it because we get to see daddy for a few minutes and it fills Billy and my "love tanks" since he's so tired when he comes home, it's supper then fall asleep on the couch pretty much every day so we try to stop by his squadron every time we are on base...and sometimes we make special trips to base just in hopes of seeing daddy! 
 Sunday was a perfect end to our great weekend because I got filled with the word at church, we got to see Billy for a few minutes, John Pierce got to love on daddy and we got to see him in action, sort of! 

This weekend Billy's best friend from Moody is coming to visit and we are so excited!  Hopefully Billy will get off at decent times this weekend so they can spend time together!  Charlie is such an amazing guy, I'm so glad to have him come visit and spend time with us...he is definitely someone we want in John Pierce's life long term!  I promise to be a better blogger and take pictures! 
Happy Wednesday friends,

Best Weekend in San Antonio...Saturday!

I am so excited about this post!  I really don't know why except this past weekend was so much fun and I'm so excited about everyday from now until the end of the year!
I think I told you that on Saturday I was going to have a spouses brunch at our house...well we had 4 spouses show up and it was perfect.  A small group of ladies, chatting, eating yummy food and getting to know each other better, what could be better?  I'm an awful blogger because I forgot to take a picture of us. Grr.

Then Saturday night the Becks and the Sparks went out for date night...the second since I had John Pierce!  I'm not much for leaving him, I don't like pawning him off on leaving him with others...unless your CeCe! 
Big thanks to Nay for keeping him for us!  This night was so much needed!

We went to Sushi Zushi, downtown and it was delicious!  Jenn and I were talking about how being there made us feel like we were in the young and hip crowd, again, ha.  We were surrounded by college or fresh out of college "kids", eating, drinking, laughing and having a great time...It was such a great energy to be around!
Then we tried a wine bar, we lasted long enough for me to go powder my nose...this bar had a french feel to it and was very quiet...not our scene!  So we ventured a few more blocks to SWIG.  They had a fabulous cover band...when we walked in she was covering Adele, and doing it fabulously.  Then she did an Amy Winehouse, I was hooked.  We ventured outside which was the river walk!  This was the place I've been raving to go to since we moved here and I had no idea!  We sat outside, had a few martini's, people watched and occasionally heard the band...really we just people watched!
It was so great to get out without the baby, feel like an adult and not a just a mom, have delicious food, wonderful conversations with great friends, laugh and people watch.  Walk around enjoying the cool breeze that Saturday night had to offer...a rarety.  And most importantly reconnect with my love after two and a half weeks of barely seeing each other!
My handsome other half! 
Can we please draw attention to his triceps?
Our date for the night! 
We love this couple.  I've mentioned them before but here you go Chris and Jenn...names to faces.  It's a rare day in our house where Jenn and I don't get together and play with John Pierce and Jack.  They are 6 months apart and as John Pierce learns to play more him and Jack have more fun, it really is great to see them play together! 

Tomorrow, I'll blog about Sunday, it needs it's own day!
Happy Tuesday Friends,
