Walla Walla

Well we've been back a few weeks and I was hoping some of the fam would send me a few pictures I missed. Anyway, that might take longer than I though so I'll post a couple pics from Wally World.

Jon and Mandy...Many thanks for making the drive again to see us! It was great to see you guys and of course, Congratulations on the little tike in the oven;-)

Weekend with the Mundy's

We had a great weekend with Chad and Rhonda the last weekend. It was great to see them and of course little Mason. Chad also convinced me to get into the frigged Puget Sound water. Even though my toes about fell off I had a great time and even found 4 new Nudibranchs. Enjoy a few pics and maybe Chad M will send me some he took as well.

Narita, Japan

We're off work and on the way to the good old USA. By chance we had scheduled the same flight through Narita as the Fly's (on their way to india). So we went into town and enjoyed the Narita Temple and ground. We also enjoyed a veeery nice bowl of noodles at the Raman House. If your ever in Narita its was a great pitstop.

Unique Links

New addition to our blog.
Every once and a while we come upon a unique and interesting site that effects us in a special way. Sometimes we email the web address to everyone or just enjoy the site and move on. I just added something called "Unique Links" to our Blog to record such sites. After reading the latest Conde Nast Traveler I again found myself wishing I could be on a plane to somewhere. ..anywhere. One article had mini biographies of photographers most powerful travel experiences. Gregory Colberts mixture of art, wild animals and the human subject really inspired me. Enjoy his site!
Ashes and Snow.

Ausie Girls

Well, Shoshanna and Hillary are back from their trip. My wife had a few issues with the camera so were going to have to wait for Hillary to send us some more pictures. Anyway, here is one we were able to download from the Koala Sanctuary. Maybe there will be more to follow if were lucky :-) Have a great weekend.

New Family Member?

Greeting Everyone,
I'm batching it this weekend while my wife heads to Australia. Anyway, I've been left with a couple different ladies while she's gone. Cienna and Kianga... It seems we MIGHT be the house where she resides permanently. Kianga means burst of sunshine in Swahili (honoring our recent african trip). Chime in on the name if you wish!! It seems Cienna is finally accepting her as a member of sorts into her domain. Her sore arm is healing and she now is pouncing even more at around 5:00 every morning. Anyway, enjoy a couple pictures I just took.

Hillary is Here!!!

We are lucky to have Hillary Hillier (say that 5 times fast) here for a couple days before the girls head to Australia. Last night we enjoyed a great meal at California Pizza Kitchen with the Fly's. Today I had the day off so we went down to Piti Bomb Holes to get some Scuba Diving in. Even though it was great fun but I'm not sure it will compare to the Great Barrier Reef they'll dive next week ;-) Enjoy the photos!!!

Heading out!

New Doc's Good Times

WELCOME to the new dental crew!!!!
(L to R) Dr's Scott Parker, Jonathan Visscher & Debra Visscher Matson.
They took on the Guam Dental Board Exam and passed. Debra and Jonathan will be staying and starting work right away. They are already getting into the island by starting SCUBA lessons...Sweet. Scott and his wife will be coming out in January! Can't wait till you guys get here. Anyway, no blogging over the last few weeks because of the time and stress dealing with the Boards. Now that those are over we spent a nice labor day out on the ocean. We saw 11 Turtles, 1 Sting Ray, 30+ big Barracuda chasing Mike and I plus a nice mix of nudibranchs. Enjoy the pics!!
