So, I had a great summer. Went on a trip to Texas, spent some time with family, took my son Tristan around Fort Hood, where an old friend of mine let him sit in the turret of a track vehicle and push some buttons. It was a lot of fun, although we stayed so busy that it felt more like a field trip than a vacation. 

Either way, now that I've been back a few days, the old grind has started kicking back in. Tristan goes back to school on Friday, my wife and I are both back into our work schedules. I'd like to thank JayTen for helping me with the admin portion of my contest at the end, since I wasn't sure if I was going to be home yet or not. 

Here are a few pics of my trip. It's good to be home, but I could have used a few more days...or maybe weeks, away from New Orleans and work.
