I don’t think I mentioned this here but for 2 whole weeks my dh was in Afghanistan. Definitely not as long as the troops are deployed, but for a wife that didn’t marry a man in the armed forces it was ETERNITY! I’ve never been happier to see him than I was when he walked through the door this morning. And his daughter? She couldn’t stop giggling. It was the cutest, sweetest thing EVER! So, needless to say, this weekend will feature a lot of family time. Here’s what’s happening around town for you and your family to enjoy:
