Well, since Pinky informed me that it's been a little too long since my last post (like you're one to talk!), I'm finally updating.

Grant's brother, John, moved to Okinawa just about a week ago. Before he left, we had a going away party for him at our house. The good thing about our house, is we only have neighbors on one side, so we have this huge empty lot next to us. Pefect for a party like this. As you can tell from the pictures, it was an absolutely beautiful day, and we had a nice cool breeze blowing through to keep it comfortable outside.

We rented a bouncy castle from the base (which, in case you didn't know, is the cool thing to do around these parts when you have a party). The grown-ups enjoyed the castle - or rocket, I think - just as much as the little kids, but we didn't get any pictures of that.

Melissa, Dave, and Mookie had to go to a wedding that day, so they were only able to come for a short time to the party, so they came back over that night after the party was over.

Anyways, the party was great, even though it was for a sad occasion. We'll miss you John!
