Well this weekend was like all the rest which means we didn't really do anything.  This is what our Saturday morning talk sounds like...
Aaron- "what do you want to do today"
Me- "there's not much to do... same crap different day... pools, beaches, golf, bowling"
Aaron- "so what do you want to do"
Me or Aaron- "Blake do you want to go to the pool, go golfing or bowling, or go to the beach"
Blake- gives his answer and we normally end up doing it

For the most part this happens every Saturday and Sunday unless of course we have something planned with friends ahead of time which usually means we are going to the beach.

Friday we decided to go to a restaurant that we have heard good things about, Meskla Dos, it's suppose to have great burgers and BBQ well we apperently don't have the same taste in food as some of our friends and most others on the island.  So we ordered 2 things, Blake was going to split with me.  Aaron paid and noticed the man took his money and then turned around and put together a burger no gloves, nothing.  The other man was glove-less as well gross right :/  Well we got our food and Aaron decide to try his burger.... can we say salty, to the point where he took 1 bite and couldn't eat anymore, his fries were the same way.  We have never gone to a restaurant and ordered food and turned around and walked out without eating.  So we ended up at another place that we like and then had Gelato for dessert!  If you're a regular reader you know that's my fav!!  Although I was sad they didn't have mint :( it was still good!

Saturday we hung out around the house and did nothing really.

Sunday we drove down to the Navy base and went to the pool.  Blake had a blast as usual!

With all of this said we are sooooo ready to be home again with the endless options of things to do!  Jacksonville, FL has it all and we can not wait to be back :) I think we talk about things we look forward to about being back stateside daily and it just makes me excited thinking about it... even though it is right at a year away before we turn over the house!  I keep telling myself that it'll go by quickly but I'm not so sure.

Catch Up

Again we haven't been up to much these days, we have both been working and them we hang out on the weekends.  I have come to appreciate my weekends these days!!

We have been going to the beach quite a bit here is Gab Gab from this weekend, here is some pictures from Ritidian and Tarague.  Here is the pictures from today Funday Sunday!!

The USO and MWR brought Toby Keith to play for both the Navy and Air Force bases.  We wanted to stay for the whole thing but our little Munchkin got tired and was ready to go home, so we left way early.  Here are some cruddy pictures that I took with one of our phones, htey aren't great but they're proof :) 

This weekend we went to GabGab (the link above if from then) and had a great time and after a lot of talk, convincing, and Blake arguing, and angry with me I got him to go snorkeling with me!  He had a blast and saw lots of fishies and cool stuff... can't compare to the aquarium :)

Last week Aaron called me at work to tell me that he was going to be deployed again before we leave... not really a huge shock but something that wasn't written in the Mustang's (LDO) schedule till last week when they found out someone wasn't coming as a replacement.  Sounds bad right... well when the schedule was made months ago we always kinda thought that there was a good chance it would change and I told him that IF he was going to be deployed again and he was going to Iwakuni, Japan that Blake and I would be there in a heart beat.  We absolutely LOVED it there and I am soooo excited to be going back, except this time it will be in Dec and when it's cold.  We are going to be going for at least 2 weeks this time, last time it was right at a week.  Blake and I got sick so that left less time to explore.  So this time I am coming prepared and although there is a very good chance we will get sick we will have 2 weeks :)  Aaron will leave Dec 10th or so and we will be leaving a week or so later.  So it'll be a Japanese Christmas for the Gaither's this year!!!

Since he will be deployed up until about a month and half before we leave I will be doing the household good pack out and shipping my car before he gets home!  The pups will be going back home the beginning of Dec before our trip (only 2 months sooner than the original plan).  From December to April when Aaron get home we be busy busy for me but it'll help pass the time :) and then we'll be homeward bound.... YAY YAY YAY!!  I can't even stand it I'm excited.  

With all of that said I have been looking on the internet at plane ticket for Japan, things to do in Japan, houses in JAX, schools, in JAX, cell phone service for when the time comes.... so much to do but from what I'm told is a long ways off!!!

Anyways, I hope everyone has a great week and I will try to update next weekend!
