One of my favorite parts about being a parent is reliving my own favorite childhood memories. I love creating and sharing first time experiences with my kids. It is rewarding on so many levels.
On June 22, 2011, the kids experienced their first plane ride. Their Uncle Jared was graduating from Army Basic Training in Columbus, Georgia. We were excited to be a part of this experience with him. The kids were so ecstatic to ride on an airplane.

The next morning we were up bright and early to get ready for the Turning Blue ceremony at Fort Benning for Jared.
After our walk along the Chatahoochee we decided to go to The Cannon Brewpub.
It consisted of two main areas, a bar side dining area, and a pizza side dining area. The pizza side dining area was quieter and had more of a family oriented feel. It had a wood-burning pizza oven and a 1920s Mathushek piano player. We tried a sampler of their home brewed beer and the kids had their very first root beer float. 🙂
It was back to the hotel and to bed for an early rise the next morning. We headed to the National Infantry Museum in the morning to attend Jared’s United States Army Infantry Graduation Ceremony.
Needless to say we are all proud and love our Army Soldier. With Jayson being a Marine he is very proud his brother has followed in his footsteps by joining the military.
God bless America!!
