More pictures direct from Okinawa:
I love the sign that says “Meet Jared”

And this:
The writing says “Jared, Best wishes Nice name”
Tell me that didn’t make you laugh out loud!

I look at how long it’s been since my last post and it makes me feel so lousy. These 10 hour days have been rough on our schedule, and all our spare time is spent cleaning up and running errands, so it’s easy for me to set this to the side. It’s been a busy month and it’s hard to believe there’s only 2 months left until RJ’s return! We recently had more friends head out so please remember all the soldiers, airmen, sailors, and Marines in your prayers long after RJ comes home.
The most exciting thing to happen the last few weeks was Jeff’s birthday! He turned 7 and we had a fun party at our local kids museum.
Hard to believe that the little boy who started our adventure as parents has survived for 7 whole years!!

I guess this is a chain, but it recently opened near my in laws and I’ve heard good things so we went and picked some up the last time we were there. It was pretty darn yummy, AND they have a military discount!


but is this REALLY the guy you want giving a national security briefing? He’s not much of a communicator…

This dinosaur thought FJ would make a good snack, but it turns out he’s not very filling!

Can you identify this shape?


On our way into the kids museum in Everett.
Man, they’ll let anyone drive a bus these days
