Namma, Matt's grandmother, celebrated her 94th birthday this week. The kids had a great time with festivities, from water balloon launches, water guns and the slip n' slide, to ice cream cake, there was no shortage of activities...or food. Believe me, quite an affair! For us, it was fantastic to play with the cousins and spend some time with them after so many years away.

It was with much sadness and heavy hearts that we had to put Dudley dog to sleep today.
The kids said their good byes, and took some time with him, but that didn't make it easier.
He's been with us since well before the kids came along, and even in his very old age, he never snapped or even gave us cause to be angry with him. He was an amazing dog, who logged over 40,000 flight miles, traveling with us as an important part of our family, no matter where the military orders. At age 15, he'd surely lived a full life, still loved a walk in the evening, and a treat when offered. We're going to miss him more than words can say.
