picking Daddy up at the airport

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!
