Bowled over

Nathan's two weeks of official leave is over tomorrow. Can you believe it's been two weeks? We have been partying hard over here at the Tiki Hut. It has been so fun to have Nathan home! and I have been avoiding the computer. I just haven't wanted to waste any time! But now it's time to catch up....


Bowling with John:






John has kept a list of fun things to do with his dad, and bowling was right at the top. Each and every phone call from Nathan, John would run down his list: bowling, snorkeling, wrestling, and the water park... so far they are 3 for 4.

John's score wasn't as good this time as the last time we went bowling, but his form was awesome! Here's a funny from John: the kids and I went bowling the weekend before Nathan came home. That makes it sound like we bowl a lot. Not so. Thank goodness for the bumpers! That night John said in his prayer "...and thank you that I got one strike and two spares at bowling..."

He totally beat me...

coming soon - scuba-ing. glider rides. a jam session. and a Lost casting call.

Those pictures are hilarious! John is such a pro! I'm glad you guys have had a great 2 weeks of leave with Nathan. It will probably be nice to get back into the regular rhythm of life now that his leave is done too. Fun!

Wow! I think you may have a future pro bowler on your hands. Check out that form! And a strike and two spares, sheesh!

Can't wait to hear about the Lost casting call, and the other stuff too. ;)

OK - back to work is good. Home for dinner is good. For a minute it sounded like this was just a break in the deployment.

It sounds like you've made the most of the two weeks. I'm looking forward to reading about more.
