Sunday was the last day of Graduation weekend. Michael only had "base liberty" that day so we just stopped at different places on base. There were a lot of little things he needed to buy to take with him to Tech School so we did that. It's kind of fun going to all the mini malls and the BX on base because everything is cheaper and TAX free. A shopaholic could get into a little bit of trouble there. :)
We took Evie to the park on base again because it was just that awesome. Within the one park, they have three different park areas. A toddler spot for 3 years and under, a slightly larger play structure for ages 3 to 5, and a regular-sized play structure for 5 to 12 year olds. I hope whatever base we move to has a similar playground because I feel way more comfortable with Evie playing on equipment closer to the ground when she's still so small. As you can tell, she had a lot of fun.
Sunday was a very "chill" day for us. Although the weekend was fun, it had been long and slightly stressful for all of us. So much went on and none of us got as much sleep as we'd have wanted. We spent a lot of time driving around that day, just talking.
Michael had to be back to his squadron at 4:30pm so he could pack up his stuff and help get the dorm ready for the new trainees who would be arriving on Tuesday. It goes without saying that telling him goodbye was one of the hardest things ever. After two months apart, four days together was just not long enough. But such is the life of a military family I suppose.
