He Is Back....

These are pictures from Tyler's return. We went to Houston yesterday to see the soldier's being escorted in by police motorcade. Tyler was on the second plane to arrive so this happened around 3 p.m. It was much too hot so Annabel was not able to make the trip with us, but Mel and I, along with Carly and Colette we able to see him arrive. I can't begin to tell you how good that hug felt knowing that I would not be telling him bye again, at least for a while. His unit has 120 soldiers and they were all treated free to dinner at Golden Coral. It was so emotional seeing them all enter and the customers and workers cheering for them. We stayed the night since this morning their was a program to welcome them home with speakers and a luncheon.

The following pictures of Tyler's homecoming to Annabel. I think the words will say it all...there wasn't a doubt in my mind that she remembered who he was and I think it warmed his heart also. I asked him the first three things he wanted to do when he returned and number one was to see Annabel, then his dog and after this his bike!
