Homecoming Pics

Blogger is working again, so I can upload some pics from my boyfriend's homecoming ceremony. They aren't the best quality, but they give you a good idea.

The gray is a long curtain, that separates the tent into two parts. On one side are the families waiting for their soldiers, and on the other, the soldiers.

Then the curtains opened to magically reveal our soldiers standing in formation. Imagine the restraint and self control those kids (not to mention us adults) had to practice upon seeing our soldiers standing there, but not being allowed to run up to them until after the short ceremony.

Me and my soldier. *Sigh* What bliss. (Don't ask me about the weirdo walking in the background.)

Thanks for sharing the pictures! You two make such a cute couple!

Weird guy could easily be cropped out. If you don't have a program to do that, let me know. I'd be happy to do it for you and then email it to ya...

You guys look so incredibly happy!! It must be so nice!

Weirdo in the background had me cracking up. I think the reflector around his waist just added more humor to it.

Ahh...congrats, congrats :) I love the whole "revealing" the soldiers idea. I remember last year, they marched in and then we had a statement from the commander and then the kids just shot out into the gym like lightning. Good times :) Enjoy!

I think you should definitely get one for laughs! Some Lomos are hard to come by in the US, and we have to pay outrageous prices on eBay. Next time I'm traveling in Europe I'm going to keep my eye out for a couple of models. :)

Eeeeek! I am beyond excited that you guys liked 'Arrested Development!' It's one of those shows where, if you watch from the beginning, it's hard not to get hooked! You'll have to get the second season if you can!

I'm also tickled that you thought of me. :)
