Thanks for the Visit

Grandpa and Grandma Perigo came to see us a few weeks ago. We had a great time. Although, most of our plans were "postponed" due to Cameron's PRK surgery recovery (who knew getting your eyes fixed was so painful - but three weeks later Cameron can finally says it was worth it) we still managed to do some fun things. And just hanging out was great too.

Thanks for coming. Thanks discovering that little bear museum for us. Thanks for teaching us how to make "octopus" hot dogs. Thanks for the walks. Thanks for all the frisbee. Thanks for the notebooks and drawing the horse on the front page (Austin has brought it for show and tell and brought it to two friend's houses to show off his drawing of a horse {aka Grandma Perigo's horse sketch). Thanks for taking Landon to the bus stop a few times - that made him feel special. Thanks for helping Cameron with the kids while I went to Utah. Thanks for taking Cameron to all of his appointments. Thanks for teaching us how to play chess. Thanks for scrubbing the cupboards - and introducing me to Old English varnish (they look SO much better). Thanks for sticking up for me when Cameron didn't like my haircut. Thanks for endless stories and games of "ball". Thanks for spending time with the kids. They loved every second.


The sad part about people coming over is they always have to leave. It's always rough when our families go back home.

P.S. Tomorrow is the day we are "supposed" to find out where we are going. Cameron's office has a huge map with colored pins for each resident in each of the bases offered. The word is that they are going to take the pins out through out the day and by the end there will be 5 pins representing where each guy/girl is going. *cue execution music* {I'll tell you as soon as I know-after they pick me up off the floor and give me an oxygen mask}

Aren't Grandpa's and Grandma's the best. Glad you had a fun visit! Jared had the PRK done too and it was a rough recovery, but so worth it! Hope you are feeling better Carmeron!

Oh my gosh! I can't believe the wait is over. It has felt like more than a month for me and I am not even the one moving. I am excited to see where you are going!
I am glad you got to have all that help! It looks like you had a great time while they were there.

What a fabulous visit! Grandparents are the best. It is so hard to say goodbye! And I am dying to know, but I don't want to know, but I am dying to know...yipes! If I'm feeling like this, I can only imagine how you must be feeling!

What's the news? What's the news? What's the news??

Wow. Can't believe Cameron's recovery was so bad. I had Lasik quite a few years ago and I was fine after a day. Sounds like I picked the right one to do! Glad he is feeling better now.

Can't believe you find out today! I'm nervous (and excited) for you.
