One more week and then he gets to come to Utah and see his sweet, new little granddaughter. I know he can't wait to be here with us.

More Blessings

Sunday walk on the beach. This was a beautiful little beach that was mostly used by locals.  
We loved the Sea Turtles. That were so amazing. We could just sit and watch them for hours. These guys were just sunning themselves on the rocks. 
Sunset at A Bay. The name is very long and starts with an A, but everyone just calls it a Bay. It truly was the most beautiful place to watch the sun go down. 
This was called Akaka Falls. It was such a huge drop. It was very rainy here and we got quite wet on the walk back to our car. 

We were so blessed to be able to go to Hawaii for 11 days!!! Now we know why they call it Paradise. It truly is the most beautiful place. We met our dear friends - the VanOrmans - from Medicine Hat, Alberta and had such a great time with them. We played on the beach, watched beautiful sunsets, swam with the Sea Turtles and many, many more things. Just thought I would share a couple of pictures of our trip. 


So, I am feeling like I have so many blessings right now that I just had to share a few. We have a very precious new grandbaby in our family!!! Ella Margaret Rodee was born on October 29, 2008 at 10:54 AM. She weighed in at 7 lbs. 3 oz. She has tons of black hair and dark eyes. Of course she came one day after I left Utah.  Another blessing we have is that we were able to video chat with Marci and Christian right after Ella was born - that was amazing. We didn't feel quite so bad about not being there with them. I told Rob that the money we paid for my laptop was worth every penny, just to be able to do that!!!!! So here is a picture of our latest little sweetie!
