When We Miss Our Daddy

Dave works a lot due to the nature of his job.  His shifts are 24 hours, and he works a lot of over-times as well, so it is not uncommon for him to be working a 48 hour shift.  Also, sometimes things line up that have him working a 72 hour shift, and he has worked as many as 120 hours in a row!  We always miss him, to be sure, but when he was on his most recent 96 hour shift we just couldn't stand it and had to go visit him.  The boys were thrilled to see him, of course!  They were so excited to see daddy, in fact, that it took them a while to remember that we were at the fire station and that they could go exploring!  But once they remembered where we were, they definitely took full advantage of it!

They also had a lot of fun checking out the exercise equipment at the fire station, too.  The line of the day was "Mom, why do firemans have balls?"  Took me a second to realize what he was asking and I had to laugh at that!

We had a really great visit!  We always have a great time when we visit daddy at work, but we much prefer it when he's home with us!  Still, we can't complain- he takes such good care of us and we are so extremely blessed to have him!!!
