Ben making albuquerque proud
Doesn't our mayor dress like a retired tourist in Florida?
Watching Daddy on stage
Is this not the cutest face you've ever seen?
Ben received an award for his brave service in Iraq or Afghanistan on the fourth.
Oh, he didn't go to the desert?
That's ok, they still gave him "the highest honor bestowed upon an Albuquerque citizen."
Oops! He felt really badly about the whole thing, and you should have seen his face when they announced what the award was for! He looked at me (on the front row of thousands of people) and wanted to melt into the floor. Nonetheless, he bravely accepted his award and will donate it to his Guard unit, where people have actually served over there. And I'm glad we went because Benson was in complete awe for the first fireworks show of his life saying, "Wow. Woooow. WOW!" as each firework lit up the sky. Holidays are so much more fun with kids.
