Military Mondays-Family Weekends

This is the start of my new Military Mondays posts. I thought that it would be a great way to share information with others in the military as well as our extended family. This is also a great way for me to keep up to date on relevant info and learn coping mechanisms for our upcoming deployment. This lifestyle can be very stressful at times. I hope you enjoy these posts. I have some great ones coming.

Weekends are a great joy for us. They are most often the only time during the week we are usually all together. We love doing things outdoors and exploring our local area. Q-tip also likes to throw in a Mommy or Daddy day. Yesterday Q-tip and J went to see Shrek Forever After. I didn't have much interest in the movie personally, Animal is terrified of Shrek and Q-tip really needed some Daddy time. It turned out great for all of us.

That said we also love to travel, whether that be a mini holiday or a longer one. Memorial day weekend and the 4th of July are great times for a holiday. Long or short. We don't have anything planned for either of these times but Cedar Fair Entertainment Company is offering free admission for military both weekends. This sounds like a great mini holiday, especially since we were considering Knox Berry Farms for our last mini holiday but went to Sea World instead.


  1. I'm so freakin happy you posted this link. We have been wanting to take the munchkin somewhere before school starts and July is the perfect month for us. Thanks :).

  2. Can't wait to see more of these posts! I'm so glad you are able to spend some quality time together on the weekends!!!

    I'm surprised Animal is scared of Shrek!!! lol Poor guy!
