Pre-deployment Daddy Dates

Generally, I think that deployment is pretty rough on the family.
Everyone misses Daddy and Daddy misses the family.

But there is one good thing about the sobering situation of a dooming deployment...
One-on-one Daddy Dates!

My husband takes the time to spend special one-on-one time with each kid. 


And even arranges time to take Mom to a few special locations... 

*sigh*  
I love to hike...
And its been a long time since I got to romp around in the mountains just me and my Love...


And thank you, husband, for the wonderful times.

The great thing about Daddy Dates is that you don't really need a special excuse (ie deployment) to make special time for the family.

Do it.  Go spend some special time with a Loved One ;)

Hey, Lady! My hubs just deployed - Navy, will make most of a six month deployment (our sixth). This is day 2 without Daddy for us.

Stay strong! Have faith! And give your hubs an extra hug tonight for all the wives who can't hug theirs. <3

I really feel for you and your kiddos. I couldn't imagine being away from my other half. Savour the time you have before he goes and look forward to more of these special moment when he gets back. xxx

Thanks girls, it is always so inspiring to hear what is going on in your neck of the woods, as well.
