This is a retro-post.
When Andrew was three weeks old, he embarked on his first major excursion to attend Uncle Tyler's Commissioning as a Second Lieutenant at the US Air Force Academy. We decided that the commencement ceremony might be a little too much for us, as it was outside in Falcon Stadium, and a long multi-hour event. Andrew hung out in the sling for most of the commissioning activities. He got to meet Great Aunt Kathy, Mariko and Devon, and Uncle Devin and (soon-to-be-future) Aunt Kathleen for the first time. He dressed for the occasion in his Air Force Fightin' Falcons hat.
The trip also marked Andrew's first night in a hotel, the Colorado Springs Marriott (also the official home hotel of the Air Force Falcons football team!). He slept extremely well and enjoyed being the king of the king-size bed.
After the family returned from the commencement ceremony, we attended a party thrown by Monique's family at their cabin west of C-Springs. Then our family along with Uncle Devin and Kathleen made our way home and got to spend some quality time.
