Home from the detachment to Michigan + Touring Ft. Pickens

My weekend recap comes a bit late because I am busy squeezing this cutie who is finally home!!

Rob has been gone for the last two weeks on a training detachment to a small base in northern Michigan.  Since summer storms in Florida are inevitable, flights are often cancelled in July due to inclement weather.  VT-3, Rob's training squadron, decided to get around this by taking the planes, a group of instructors and around 50 students to Michigan, where the weather is much milder in the summer.   Rob's schedule on the det was completely packed - flying twice a day every day except for the two days of mandatory rest.  He completed all of aerobatics, all of forms, did two solo flights, and a cross country flight home -- all in two weeks!!  This is almost more than he has flown in the whole seven months he has been in Primary!  While the detachment was extremely beneficial in terms of training, I hated to let him go for two weeks.  We have been so spoiled by his schedule for the last year during flight school, I forgot what it was like to have him to leave for training!  Plus I am a huge baby about sleeping at home alone!  I kept busy and the time went by quickly but I am SO happy to have him home!

Luckily, Rob was not scheduled to fly today so we were able to sleep in and spend the whole day catching up.  We went to check out Ft. Pickens,which somehow we haven't done yet, then spent the rest of the day lounging on Pensacola Beach.
