July 4th 2010
July 4th!!Since Chad was deployed for the last 4th, this was our first one spent together. It couldn't have been better and will definitely be one of my favorite memories. We didn't really have a plan to do anything until last minute. One of the beaches on base had a big "Beach Bash." There were thousands of people...THOUSANDS! They had live music, food, games, and fireworks. It was mostly just a bunch of drunk Marines, but it was still fun. We camped out our little spot on the beach in perfect view of the fireworks. A lot of our friends showed up. But Ashley and Zach were the only ones that stuck around with us until after the fireworks. Chad was cracking me up! I have never seen him dance like he did! We would walk up to the stage and dance like nobody was watching! We even got free Redbulls out of it! lol I love seeing him have a good time, he deserves it. Makes me smile. :) After the fireworks Chad, me , Ashley, and Zach had our own little dance party on the beach. Later Chad took me down to the water and told me how much he loved me and is going to miss me. He keeps apologizing about how he keeps leaving me, but I just remind him that I'd wait forever for him. And that's the truth. This lifestyle is hard, but just like I always say, I'd do anything for Chad. Anything.
