Last night we picked Daddy up from the airport. This is the first time that we actually picked him up. Of course I had to make a big deal about it.
Tuesday after school we went to the craft store to buy some poster board. Ben knew we were making a "sign" for Daddy. In his little brain he was thinking "stop sign" so when I asked him what we should write on the sign, he said "stop Daddy."
Here we are making the sign. CC was screaming at first since she didn't have a brush in her hands. So, I let her join in the fun:
And fun she did have!
The paint was non-toxic and washable, so CC didn't get sick and clean up was a breeze.
Of course Steve was delayed. He was due in at 19:30 but since they had to replace a battery he didn't get in until 20:39. To kill some time we watched the planes take off and land in a parking lot, and Ben LOVED it!
We arrived at the airport and only had to wait about 20 minutes for him to come out.
Ben on the lookout:
Finally Steve walked out! Notice how Ben is crawling up his body. Steve gets big hugs like this every time he gets home, and I hope they will always be this way.
Ben just had so much to tell Steve:
Here Steve is putting Ben down so that he can say "hi" to CC. I love how big Steve's smile is here. This makes being gone all worthwhile
notice how Ben just can't leave Steve:
What a fun little outing we had!
