feeling patriotic

Today I had the opportunity to attend the Armed Forces Salute Luncheon at the Von Braun Center, because my business was a sponsor and needed to fill a couple seats for folks who couldn't come. It was really nice, definitely better than I had been expecting! The food was decent, but the best part was that I got to see the 82nd Airborne Division Chorus sing. I saw them in concert a couple years ago in Guntersville; if you've never seen them, you have got to make every effort to the next time they are nearby. They are incredible. I also got to see Gen. Richard Cody - the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army. He was great, and it was definitely awesome to hear him speak. Anyway, all in all a surprisingly fantastic time. I felt like saluting someone and saying the Pledge of Allegiance when it was over.

I also uploaded some pictures from last week when Bridger visited. Go check them out in my flickr account! I love this one of Uncle Nathan giving Bridger a raspberry.


  1. I was so happy to see the pictures of my family tonight!!! Miss you.

  2. Patriotism is in the air with July 4th coming up soon. Can't wait to see the fireworks this year. My folks are coming into town for my birthday and with be here through the 4th. This is the first time I can remember us actually planning on going to see a fireworks display - we'll be headed over to Point Mallard!!
