A Loud Shout-Out!

This blog is a very loud shout-out to all of our friends and family that fed and cared for us during our whirlwind visit to the U.S.   (This is also a chance to give kudos to our kids who did an awesome job on the crazy ride of "visiting America"...they rocked it!)

We had over 35 "scheduled visits" with friends/family.  The majority involved food...which explains the weight gain that Jeff and I experienced (well, the bags of peanut butter m-n-m's and boxes of Tastykakes contributed as well).  However, despite the 1300 miles of travel in the tri-state area, one cross-country flight, countless calories...we certainly enjoyed the fun, food and fellowship!

Enjoy some snapshots of the "people" we visited.
