Busan, South Korea

Haeundae Beach in Busan.

Grant in his pilot outfit! Yowsa!
We went to Busan, South Korea with some friends for the weekend. It started off with us being stuck on base for an hour and then taking the 2:25 train instead of the 2:27 train to Busan. Two taxis and three train rides later we made it to the beach. It's not warm enough yet to be in our swimsuits, but it was nice to have a change of scenery. We stayed with our friends Tara, Andy and their little boy Tyler in the Novotel Hotel right on the beach. We walked around Busan, ate copious amounts of American food, and visited a really cool aquarium. Good times!
Earlier in the week we said goodbye to Lt. Col. Stokes and their family at a Farewell. Grant just landed so I saw him taxi in the A-10 with his full pilot gear. Sometimes I forget how cool his job can be when we put up with crazy schedules, but a couple weeks ago Grant got his Sandy 1 upgrade finished. It means he can lead search and rescue missions for guys on the ground and in harms way. I'm proud to know someone who is a true hero. Did I tell you i'm the luckiest girl in the whole world?


  1. Joel wants to know if the pilots call it an "outfit?"

    Love you, miss you.

  2. What a sexy dude! How about that great looking wife he has! I made pictures from your prom night and will be giving a couple to Grandma and Grandpa. Love you and miss you lots!
