Mandatory fun...

Well... we had a very busy week! Tuesday we went to dinner with a friend and his girlfriend so we could get to know her more. It was fun and we found a new restaurant that we will definitely be going back to! It's called The King and I and it's Thai food... when you come visit, if you like Thai we'll take you there! Yuuuuuum! 
Wednesday was pretty quiet, just had dinner and then hung out... and then Thursday was "Mandatory Fun Day" with Andy's Company for Easter. It was goooooood people watching! :) We (the wives) were reminded of how certain superiors like to abuse their rank... and basically act like jerks... but it humbles me to see how calm the soldiers were about it.. basically, the other 3 Platoon's  were standing in the shade, so 1st Platoon (who had been standing in formation for about 40 minutes) were hot and in the direct sun, so they went to a shady spot... well the second they moved one of the Sgt's starting yelling at them... ugh, ridiculous! IT WAS HOT!!! My friend Amy and I wanted to march over there and give him a piece of our minds, but instead.... we just vented to each other. Anyways, I was telling Andy about it, and he said that particular Sgt is leaving tomorrow! He's RETIRING! So.. that was how Mandatory Fun Day ended. It was a good day, lots of fun with friends... but after being in the sun for 8 hours, we were EXHAUSTED! So we came home, showered and took a nap and then met the Woodwards at Wendy's and came here and watched a movie. It was a great day!! 
Friday we got to sleep in, and hang out all day... then we went to a movie and just relaxed. Saturday we cleaned house, went to lunch at a local Mexican restaurant called Rodeo... I wasn't TOO impressed, but we agreed we will try it again... maybe they were having a bad night? 
Then Easter Sunday we went  over to our friends (The Woodwards) house for lunch and it was DELICIOUS! Scott cooked a big roast with carrots and mashed potatoes, and I made a green bean cassarole and brownies for dessert. We just love their family! Their boys are so so sweet and polite and fun to be around... and it's SO nice to have  friends who I really truly feel like I can talk about anything to and I know she won't judge me. Love you Amy and Kelly!! 
Then... our dear friends The Wootens came home!!! They had been gone all week visiting family in TN and it was so weird without them there!! They were driving home and called to see what everyone was doing, so they drove to Post, checked in and came straight over! What troopers! It was a mini reunion!!! So happy to have those 2 families! 
Andy had today off as well.... so we've been hanging out and just being together... it's so great to have him home! I love 4-days!
