Nickle Ride

For those of you who don't know.... The Army is full of old traditions. The Nickle Ride is on of those traditions. In flight school it is a tradition that the first day you fly the helicopter you pay your pilot instructor a nicle from the year you were born. Well...Clint had his Nickle Ride this past week. I was so excited to hear how it went, and then he got home and he was all bummed cause he said he did'nt fly that well. All I could think is "you're not supposed to be able to fly well. It was your first day" But then I reminded myself that Clint is a perfectionsist. (One of the many things I love)I was so happy to hear that on day 2 he was more than happy with the way he flew. So here he is finally flying helicopters. AMAZING!!!!!!!
Congrats on your Nickle Ride Clint

Fall Festival

One of the things that I love about living on post is all the activities that are provided. It seems like there is always something fun going on. A few weekends ago there was a fall festival on post. The festival fields are so close to our house we just walk on over every time there is anything going on. The Fall festival was extra fun because there was lots and lots of Chili to eat. There was chili with pasole or chili with peanuts, or just basic chili. Something for everyone. They served it in small servings so you could try lots of different kinds. Yummy!!!!!!!

They always park the helicopters on the field and let everyone check them out.It's so cool to see these amazing machines. And to think Clint will be flying one soon.

We met up with some of our friends. Brandon Jack and Natani Atsity

And as always....Ruby had a blast. She loves playing with all of Clints flight buddies. What a fun life.

This is how we spent the first day of November

It was our last chance to go to the beach before Clint started flight school. As of today he is a flight student. We are so excited.

Mas and Pas in Alabama

Ruby has been so excited to have Mas and Pas visit her in Alabama
From the moment we picked them up at the airport she couldn't stop talking
She kept saying "I love you Mas and Pas"
She wanted to cuddle all night with them

We have done lots of fun things with them. We have been to the helicopter museum

And we have been down to the beach

Ruby played frisbee with Pas

Got burried in the sand

And found lots of seashells

Is that Ruby

Before we left Salt Lake City to come to Alabama, Clint's talented sister took some incredible pics of Ruby and her cousin Sophia. Look at these two little models. They look so grown up and like they totally knew what they were doing. It is fun to have the photos so that Ruby can remeber her friend and cousin. I can't get over how adorable they are. More pictures to come.

Ruby started school. I cried, but she has been so excited. Especially to ride the bus!!! Here at Ft. Rucker they have a Pre-K program, the bus picks them up and drops them off and Ruby just couldn't be happier. We are excited to see what this school year has in store for her. I just can't believe she is old enough to go to school all by herself. What a big girl!

Ruby getting off the bus after her BIG first day!

Can you even believe how cute this backpack is?

Clint and I have a new obsession.... The Hunger Games. It is all we can think about. This is the first book in a series of three. We read the first two books in a week and now we are impatiently waiting for the third and final book to be released on the 23rd of this month. Unfortunately for me Clint will be gone at that time and unreachable, but he has made me promise to wait and read it with him when he gets home. I'm not sure if I can do it. The night after we finished reading the second book "Catching Fire" Clint said I kept talking about it in my sleep. I am telling you....you become obsessed. Let me know if any of you read them.

Today Ruby was trying to be real tricky at the pool and it didn't end so well.

She was such a big girl and even told Clint that she would be brave and wouldn't cry if he would just hold her. She was true to her word and did such a great job. Clint and I couldn't believe what a trooper she was.

And this is the finished product.

the beach

For my birthday we headed to the beach again. I love being able to go there so quickly! We went to a state park beach that was really calm, it was perfect for Ruby. We snorkeled a bit and just played in the water. We also went to dinner with some friends, then hit up the mini golf! It was a fun day, and nice to spend my birthday with Clint, since he was gone last year.

happy birthday Ruby girl

Ruby turned 4 on July 5th (I know... I'm behind on my posting of this wonderful event) However I have been a bit busy with the move and unpacking...
So we celebrated Ruby's bday with my family before we moved. I love the look on her face when the cake is in front of her, What Joy!!!!! I was so glad she got to celebrate with family, I was worried she would miss everyone on her actual birthday and I was feeling so guilty for ripping her away from everyone.

However, the day of her bday we went to the beach.... and she loved it! She wants to go everyday. It's so great... the beach is just an hour drive from our place in Alabama. We had a fun time playing in the sand and swimming in the waves. We are happy to finally be together as a family. Wha a great way to celebrate.
