Finally

Husband and I recently took a picture that’s been 5 years in the making. In almost every unit that we’ve been in, they let families/couples take pictures in front of the jet for Christmas cards or family photos. And every year since we’ve known each other, there’s been some reason why we couldn’t have our picture taken. One year we found out about it after the fact, a couple years Husband was away for training, and last year I was out of town for work. Every year when we’d get Christmas cards from other military friends smiling in their token picture in front of the jet, I was so envious. Finally, this year we got our picture! I know Husband wasn’t excited about it, since it involved three things that normally don’t appeal to him: 1) smiling (nicely) for photos, 2) going into work on a day off, and 3) being the focus of attention. He was a good sport about it, though. I’m not sure how the pictures turned out, but I’m certain I know who had the biggest smile in the picture.

It seems so simple, doesn't it? But when it comes right down to it...it's really hard to get a family pictures! Just wait till you add a couple of kiddies into the mix!

Glad you got your picture :)

Congrats on getting your photo! Mr. Top Gun HATES pictures, and we have yet to get our picture in front of his plane... Alas, we have photos of us, and of him in and out of the plane, but I cannot get him to find the time to actually pose in front of it and get a friend to snap it! With baby Top Gun on the way, I am pushing this issue like CRAZY this year!!!

We'll see how it goes... It might be easier to get one with him once he is actually home for one, right? Either that, or i'm going to have to stand on the flightline and snap it myself :)
