VTC and Birthday Cake

Yesterday was a neat day. The unit set up a Video Teleconference with the Lincoln Armory for Mother's Day, and I was lucky enough to be one of the soldiers that got to participate. I got 10 minutes to talk with Erika and Benjamin. I could see them great, but they said that they had a little bit of a hard time seeing me. There was a little bit of a delay, but overall it was very, very cool. The 10 minutes went by really fast, but being able to talk and see them was well worth it. Talking on the phone is great but being live is so much better. I really hope that I get another chance to do it again. Benjamin waved goodbye at me and was a good boy the whole time. At one point he tried to crawl off the table but mommy was there to grab him. It definitely made Monday easier to deal with and my spirits have definitely been lifted. Here is a picture from Ben's birthday party of him enjoying some cake.

Benjamin and I loved seeing you as well. We were both in a very good mood after we saw you. He is now banging a tractor he got for his birthday into the walls yelling Dada!!, Dada!! It is funny

Sack, We were talking about how much Ben is a spitting image of your baby pictures. He is your mini me.

Dan says the picture of Ben with the cake on his face reminds him of the Blueberry Pie Night at Ameristar
