I have my baby back...

Alexandria is a volunteer for Civil Air Patrol. It is a civilian sector of the Air force....For the past 10 days she has been at Encampment in Shreveport! It is a meeting place to train and encourage the cadets. She had a blast and today was her graduation so... Jacob and 2 of Alex's friends, Cameron and Ari and myself.... drove to Shreveport to watch her graduate...It was a very nice ceremony and I am so very proud of her. It is a service to our country and now she says that she wants to look further into the Airforce Academy. She has always had a desire to become a military chaplain. It makes me proud she wants to do this. She is one amazing girl....She gave the boys a run for their money... There were only 4 girls and 50 boys....They did boot camp style excersizes and she kicked butt!!!!
They showed us a picture slide show and I loved seeing pictures of her in action! So here are some pictures I took of her after the Graduation.....

I thought this sign was cool cause it has Alex's full name. Alexandria is a city an hour outside Lafayette.

Finally a photo of Jacob smiling and with his eyes open!


This is a piece or a model of an older plane!!! I loved it in all its vintage glory!

Holy moly, look at the size of this plane!

I took some amazing pictures of Alex on the flight line but uniformed men with big guns came and asked me to delete them off my camera... To be honest I did not even realize I was taking pictures of the Airforce Flight line... I know that is a no no!
This photo came out fabulous.

Jacob and Cameron...

Ari Alexandria's BFF.

Boys, Boys, Boys.... Alex made several new friends.... They all made sure she was going to text them... It is so funny to me seeing guys try to pick up on my daughter... I remember being 15 like it was yesterday.... But she gets way more numbers than me...LOL.

Can you guess which one I will be Scrapping next? I have a favorite....Give it a guess???

Happy Sunday. Hugs, Amy
