There are quite a few pictures but I feel like they really tell the story of that day so it's hard to leave any out but I will do my best to narrow them down.
We had to arrive at 4:00 in the morning that day. I planned our outfits around our usual warm and sunny San Diego weather but it ended up being rainy that day! Of course! By the time we got in the building we were already a little soggy but that wasn't about to damper our moods.
We waited inside for about 30 minutes and then they told us we could head out to the tarmac because the plane would be landing soon!! Eeeek! It was still dark but at least the rain stopped for a while. The girls got right up at the front to watch the plane land.
Finally, the plane landed and the guys started to disembark. Since there were two units on the plane, we had to watch another unit get off first. We stepped back and watched as they were reunited with their families.
Emerson told me she wanted to be the first one to hug Daddy so once I spotted him in the crowds I told her to go for it.
It's a good thing Jamie didn't capture me during this moment because this is where the ugly cry started. :)
Best feeling ever!!!
