Pre-Deployment Leave

Clint is leaving for Afghanistan in 2 very short weeks, so for the past 2 weeks he had his pre-deployment leave. It was so much fun! We went and spent those weeks with our family and friends in Utah. On the 18th we went to Lagoon with my mom and dad. It was so much fun! We went on the skycoaster, Clint had never been on it before. It was a blast. it was such a fun double date. Then on Sunday we got together with Clint's side of the family for dinner. It was great! Our nieces and nephews are so stinkin cute, and so much fun to play with. We love spending time with all of our brothers and sisters. Throughout the week we went to dinner with a bunch of our friends, it was so great to see everyone. Thursday, they had a fathers and sons shooting competition with all of his brothers, a nephew, and our dad's. They had so many guns there, and had so much fun. Clint of course was the winner of the competition, best shot of them all. He had a great time. I went to dinner at Zupas and for a drive up the canyon with my mom that evenin, it was great. Then Friday and Saturday Clint and I and my mom and dad, went out to the west desert and camped in death canyon. It was so nice, perfect weather. We went four wheeling and shooting while we were out there. We slept in the four wheeler trailer. The moon was full that night so we could see everything and the stars were so bright, it was wonderful! Sunday we took family pictures with my side of the family, up Big Cottonwood canyon. They turned out great. Last week we did much like the first, spending time with our friends for dinners and such. Also, while we were there our parents gave Clint his birthday/christmas presents. He got a new 160GB video from my parents, and this great essential oils kit from his. We started our drive back to California on Thursday and stopped in Las Vegas for the night. We stayed at the same hotel we stayed in the first time we saw each other. We rode the New York New York, ate at Hard Rock Cafe, and went to the M&M Factory and Coke Factory. It was so much fun. In the morning we headed home to San Clemente. It is always so fun to take road trips together. Clint keeps me laughing the whole time. He is my best friend, and the best companion I could ever ask for. He had to go to work today for the first time in 2 weeks, and it is so lame haha. We had such a fun time together. I love him so much, and am so grateful for him.
