|General Schissler talking about Jon.|
|Congratulating the Air Force's newest Lt. Colonel.|
|Giving flowers to one of his three favorite girls.|
|What I didn't see behind my back as Jon gave me my flowers.|
We also had a party to celebrate after the ceremony, and were able to share that fun time with one of Jon's co-workers, who also pinned on the same rank just a few months before. Congrats to you both!
|Poor Liz didn't get a chance to get the cake she wanted, so her's reads "...and Liz too...yea!" I am only responsible for the blue cake! :)|
|Here's a happy baby, sporting an outfit from adoring Grandparents.|
|The girls received musical instruments and are enjoying learning to play them.|
We also celebrated Jon's birthday, which is the day after Valentine's Day. Ellie wasn't feeling too well so we limited the celebrations on his actual birthday until she was feeling better. We all got some yummy cherry pie, though!
After some reading with the girls (they always love to sit with Daddy!) Mommy took the family on a surprise outing. We went to a place nearby where you can have lunch and see some neat cars. An added bonus was the kids' play area inside the restaurant! We'll definitely return there. :)
|Jon and Miranda, each awaiting their lunch. You can see the cars are just outside the window of the restaurant.|
|Ellie and the Rolls. (One of two there.)|
|The mobster car--a 1939 BMW. It was amazing!|
|Sweet, adorable baby. She didn't really care about the cars. :)|
|She did care about getting a nap!|
|This Maserati was calling my name....:)|
|And so many Lamborghinis, so little time.|
Of course, I couldn't get pictures of all the Porsches, Ferraris, and other awesome cars we saw. The one of the Batmobile didn't turn out very well--so if you want to see it, you'll just have to come visit!
