Spouses Excursion

What a fun day!

We left at 9 this morning in a convoy of 4 vans totaling over 30 spouses. After riding in the vans for about an hour and a half we entered White Sands Missile Range. We listened to a short briefing on what would happen that day and loaded ourselves back into the vans!
Though we knew it was coming, a simulated IED went off in front of us and still took us by surprise. We were in the middle of a firefight for about 2-3 minutes until the good guys came and killed OPFOR! Yay!
We saw SO much today it's hard for me to remember it all. If you want to see pictures you can "like" 5/1 on facebook.
Hopefully they will post some pictures of my absolute favorite part of the day which was taking a ride in a MATV or an Military all terrain vehicle. We ran over some big shrubs and cacti and just had a great time off roading the desert in a giant military vehicle! I'm sure all us spouses were quite a sight with our helmets and sunglasses on! Let me also add that I can't believe how heavy those helmets are! I felt like a baby without head control haha! I can't imagine wearing that thing all day with all the gear on top of that. Just another reason I'm proud of the hubs!
I also got to drive/steer the SUGV, (the WALLE robot) and when I drove it into a table I quickly handed the controller over to a friend, who then ran it into a soldier!
Well I'm off to work on some Scentsy stuff, I'm going to take this opportunity to plug my website again! www.cozyden.scentsy.us
Thanks friends, I'll try and keep up on the blogging :)
