He's leavin' on a jet plane...

We took Travis to the airport this morning to send him off on his deployment. Although I will see him one more time next week, the kids won't, so this was really good-bye for them. Noah was sad and was asking why Dad had to go away and when he got back, would he would have to go away again. Lily was just as disagreeable as ever and didn't want to be sweet. Of course she doesn't understand that he is going away for a long time, but I'm sure she will start asking about him soon when he doesn't come back. I know there will be lots of situations like this to come, so I will have to be prepared for them.

On a lighter note, before Travis left we were able to spend some time with our families. It's always nice to get together with family and have some fun.

All the cousins were gearing up for a water balloon
fight, but most of the balloons didn't make it to the
actual battle. But, it was a lot of fun anyway!

Sam gave Travis a sweet going away card.
