July 30th - Quarterly Awards Ceremony FEWarren AFB

Yes, this afternoon we attended the quarterly awards ceremony at the air force base. As usual it was a moving experience. I am an honorary commander for the support services squadron, last year it was the 90th med group. I must say that the msg took the majority of the awards! yay for them!

We just finished Cheyenne Frontier Days, the 'Daddy of 'em All', where we had the largest crowds since 1997, which was the 100th birthday. You can google it, or go to to read all about it. In a 10 day period there are 4 long parades, 3 free pancake breakfasts, Wind River Dancers, rodeo's, night shows (George Strait, Taylor Swift, Sawyer Brown, etc.) All in all a crazy 10 days that are a lot of fun! There is a huge carnival midway too, so there is things to do for all ages. The population of Cheyenne doubles for about 15 days...and the start up is when they run the steers/cows/calves right down Interstate 25! It is really something to see! We are pretty glad that the madness is over for another year :)

We're headed to the mountain for the weekend...and maybe until next Wed, since it's going to be very hot here next week. I'll not have internet on the mountain so won't be posting for a couple days.

Have a super day wherever you are and whatever you're doing!
