I have two best friends. One of them is my husband and one of them is Alicia. My husband and I spend as much time together as possible, when we aren't working. Alicia and I spend time together when we need a friend. The thing is, Alicia has another best friend too — her husband Ben. Ben is a first lieutenant in the Army National Guard and will be leaving for Afghanistan in November. Although this good weather has been thankfully hanging on quite long this year, the rain is coming, and so Alicia, Ben and I ventured out for a photo shoot before he takes off to his multiple weeks of training before Afghanistan.
To see all of the photos, visit http://s558.photobucket.com/albums/ss26/charis2105/Alicia%20and%20Ben/?albumview=slideshow. Here is a small sample of the photos. My biggest challenge in this photo shoot was keeping Ben entertained. We did have to take a break to throw rocks at ducks at Riverfront. Don't worry, we only came close to hitting them.
