Fort Bragg, NC
The Tompkins family spent the last few days at Fort Bragg visiting family. Jon’s nephew Joey and Teaya’s cousin Nathan both are stationed there. The first day we saw Joey and he took us down to his motor pool to see some military vehicles. Madison had a great time climbing on some high tech vehicles!

Madison couldn’t understand why they call this a water buffalo.

Madison says ” I don’t always sit in a HMMWV but when I do, I sit in the commanders seat.”
After checking out the base we went back for dinner and Joey got some cousin time with Madison.
By our campground we could watch and feel the vibrations of the blackhawks running ops throughout the night.
The next day we met up with Nathan, Samantha, Leala, and Joey at Fantasy Lake. They basically turned a lake into a waterpark.

Later that night everyone came back to the camper for dinner and a bon-fire.

Sunday we went over to Nathan and Samantha’s house for football. Good food, great company, and a Patriots win…can’t ask for more than that!

Aren’t they cute!

This was probably the last time we will see Nathan and Joey until they get back from deployment. Be sure to keep them and their families in your prayers! We love you guys!
