Well, I have been meaning to post...but haven't until now. :) Mom, Zeb, and Azariah got to New Zealand safely. They stayed at Nana's (our moms mom) house for the first part and got to see quite a few of our cousins. The wedding went really well, and the two newly weds are on their honey moon. The rest of the family took off to the beach for a week, and went fishing, playing on the water toys, and had a blast in the sun with out us. We are all jealous here at home in the rain.
Mom is leaving for the airport today and Zeb is going to go back to our grandmothers house. Mom and Azariah will arrive tomorrow night and all of us here are soooooo excited to have her back. We have been only half surviving without her! We were able to talk to her on Skype for the first part of the trip when they had internet...but nothing is the same as having her there right next to you...ready for a good hug. We have had lots of help with people giving us meals and inviting us over for dinner while she has been gone, and it has been such a blessing.
Well, in the first part of the trip we got lots of calls on skype (a free online webcam program, you can talk through webcams to each other) so we took a couple snapshots
They aren't the best pictures because they are taken with a webcam, but you can still enjoy them. Azariah is really giving the smiles now. He has learned to scoot with his feet on the ground so they have to keep an eye on him now... he loved to go under the furniture.
Hope you enjoy
