First Blog Entry

Okay, this is our toe in the water. Hmmm, not too bad.

I'm writing from the beach house in Ocean View, Delaware. We are here with Katie's family enjoying time at near-by Bethany Beach. We flew in to BWI Thursday afternoon, spent the night at Katie's house, then drove here Friday and went to the beach that evening. The water was cold and the tide low, but we enjoyed it.

We went again Saturday. The water is still cold and the waves even higher and the sun hot and there were a lot of people. It was wonderful. Pictures to follow.

We started the week on Monday driving to Fish Lake, Utah for a family reunion. Three of Max's sisters and several of their children, grandchildren, and great-grand-children were there. Mary bought a fishing license and rod, reel, and tackle and went fishing for the first time every. Mary, Lincoln, Samuel, Julia, and David all caught about two dozen yellow perch in two days. Becky, Max and Isaac were the cheerleaders. We came home Wednesday in time to get ready for our 6:00AM flight the next day.

Max will tell you about his trip to Kuala Lumpur in a later post.
