“I was talking with A’marie (my oldest daughter she is 5) about how daddy will be coming home sooner than expected and she was through the roof (as expected). I go upstairs to get my youngest from her nap to come down and see A’marie putting on dada’s old uniform she is so excited she decided to walk around in his gear. You bet I pulled my camera out, set up a few flags and snapped some pics. The photographer in me couldn’t resist something like this. Little goof ball is so excited and so proud of her dada. We even did some poses where I asked her to close her eyes and make a wish. In which she told me “I can’t tell you silly or it won’t come true ” Little smarty pants.” – Kim Fleury
