The Good Chaplain and I just returned from visiting Mrs. Senior Airman and Senior Airman. Yep, Senior Airman returned from his deployment and is home safe. Thank you Lord for bringing both our men home.
Our trip to visit them in Alaska was bittersweet. Unless our good friends actually act on their plans to move back, we
We traveled the AL-CAN, the Alaska-Canadian Highway, initially built during World War II. It was and still is a popular tourist destination for people wanting to experience the drive. Lots of small towns, mountains and Dall sheep dot the way. In one small town we ran into a family of four also going to our base and struck up a friendship that lasted several years.
The drive certainly helped us bond and make memories as a family. And isn’t that what vacations are about? Getting to know each other again? Although I don’t look at moving as a vacation — the Good Chaplain does — I do enjoy driving across country seeing new sights and just getting to know each other again.
