We are moving to NORTH DAKOTA!!!!!!! I know, I'm shocked too. Not even Fargo, but 70 miles north (look next to Minnesota on the state line). Grand Forks is actually an air force base and it has an international airport. I ran the numbers on Mapquest and we are 1245 miles from Salt Lake City and 1056 miles from Colorado Springs. So much for moving closer to family... The base has mostly refuelers and a homeland security section (where Josh will most likely be working). It seems very similar to Ellsworth, but a little bit smaller. I forgot to ask about our report date, so more info to come...

Ally and I visited Josh last week and did lots of fun things. I can't remember the last time I went on an actual vacation, not just visiting family. We stayed in Jacksonville at a Hyatt (nice!). We ordered room service and went for walks on the riverfront. We took Ally to the zoo and the beach (really I was the one who wanted to go). Here is her first experience with a gorilla.
Josh with his baby girl. He held her all weekend and was very sad when we left.
All in all, it was a really fun trip. I was a little worried about flying with a 4-month old, but she was wonderful on the planes and in the airports. By the end of each flight she had charmed all of the people sitting close to us. I even got my checked-bag fee waived because she smiled at the guy behind the counter!
