Our Saturday with the Colorado Army National Guard Special Ops.....

>> Saturday, August 1, 2009

This morning, I got up early and drove the girls to see their daddy in action. He was flying in support of the Colorado Army National Guard Special Operations para-drop training that they did today.

I have to admit that I've never seen a para-drop before -- but this was pretty freakin' cool! Here are some pictures and about a 20-second video of the flyover they did.


In light of baby Stellan's recent hospitalization, My Marine took this photo this morning to show our support and prayer for MckMama and her precious baby!

So cool! My little bro just finished his Marine basic, can't wait to see him next weekend, haven't seen him since November.
Thanks to all those serving our country and the strong wives (and husbands) at home supporting them!

Wow, Jen, those are great pictures!! My kids enjoyed the video...they love anything that flies in the air!

I bet your heart skips a beat everytime you see your hubby in is marine uniform...how could it not? There's something about a man in uniform, right?

Love the pics of the girls in the huge open meadow!! They must be so proud of their daddy!

That is totally awesome!! You and the kids must be so proud! What great photos, and how fortunate that the kids got to watch their dad in action... way cool!! My hubby's a computer engineer....... not nearly as exciting. ;-)

Wow! I know how proud you guys are! I see a very familiar patch on one of the arms of the soldier jumping out of the plane. My dad is a retired SGM from 5th Group Special Forces. I heard that there was an SF group working with a group of Marines these days. As a former Army Brat....I know how special your soldier is! Thanks for the great pics!
