He's finally HOME!!!

Last Wednesday was such a great day!!!  After two years Ben is HOME safe and sound.

He looks and sounds pretty much the same....

He thinks everyone looks blonder... we think his hair is darker.

BUT... He is different.   More calm, the same.... but better!

What a GREAT day!  We are sooooo glad to have you home Ben!  Love you!

The Countdown!

There are 8 days left!!!  Morgan mad this chain a few weeks back and I think it has made time slow down!  


Last month we went to Hawaii with Russ'  mom & dad & brother and sisters (& spouses).  We had such a great time... here are a few of the pictures.

Russ always has to find an "off the beaten path" hike or waterfall... this was literally a hike through the jungle!  Lots of fun!

We had to stop at 24/7 a restaurant featured on Man VS Food.  The pancake challenge was to eat three 14" pancakes with toppings in less than 90 minutes.... Unfortunately our whole table could only finish 1/2 of our order!  They tasted real good though!

Hanauma Bay... turtles, eels & lots of fish... on my!

This beautiful sunset picture was taken right across the street from our hotel.  Gorgeous!
