Caribbean Cruise 2008

All three of our kids said that this was the best family vacation EVER!

Emma loved the pool! She and Brittany spent hours in it. 

We swam with the sting rays in Grand Cayman. This was SO cool! Emma LOVED it!  She pet the sting rays and they would splash her a bit. She knows the sign language sign for "more." When they would swim away, she would sign "more," so we go  find another one! We all enjoyed this immensely. Back in town, Keaton found a stuffed sting ray and bought it for Emma. How sweet is that?!

We played at the beach in Cozumel. We rented wave-runners and a sailboat. Emma was all about the pool!

We visited the Altun Ha Mayan ruins in Belize. We ate lunch at a local restaurant, where they provided markers for you to write on the furniture and walls. Rick was happy to oblige! 

Next, we went to Roatan, Honduras. We went to a resort where the jungle meets the beach. It was beautiful! We rented a kayak and snorkeling gear. Emma LOVED playing in the ocean!

From There to Here...

We were high school sweethearts.
This is our 1980 prom picture. 

   We married in August, 1983.

Brittany was born in August, 1984.
Here, she was one week old.

Kyle was born in March, 1987. 
When he was 3 days old, he died and went home to be with the Lord. 
What a blessed reunion that will be! 

Brennan was born in July, 1988. This is one of our favorite photos of him as a baby. He was four months old; Brittany was four years old.

      Keaton was born in March, 1990.
