Fun Times & a Somber Day

Today my stepson Sgt. Allen Benthin deploys for Afghanistan with the 644th Regional Support Group: Task Force Scorpion [[400]] .  Keep him and his fellow soldiers in your heart and prayers until they all come home.
These pictures are from the week we spent with him and his girlfriend Stephanie at the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and lastly Las Vegas...we had an awesome time and didn't want it to end.
