Hello Everyone!
We are back from our relaxing and fabulous Island Adventure. Nananu-I-Ra was a great place to start the trip, and we met some great people along the way. By the time we left they all knew us, and we were the veterans of the establishment. We saw reef sharks, stingrays, sea snakes (very poisonous), eels, coral, tons of fish, toads, lots of lizards, wild horses, pigs, and more mosquitos and flies than I'll ever be able to count. It rained a bunch, I guess there was a cyclone (kind of small hurricane) off the coast of Australlia, but we also got sunburned. From there we headed out to Suva for some great rainforest, waterfalls, and swimming. We are leaving Fiji for New Zealand on Monday(at 3am), and we will miss the laid back lifestyle of Fiji. But we are excited for what lies ahead. It is amazing how far away you do feel, but it is so nice to hear from everyone and for keeping us posted. Julie I need some pictures of Cooper!! We stayed in our first (and not last) dorm, 8 people from all over the place and no one snored!! It was only $10 :) The Rainforest Lodge in Suva was quite different with it's balcony room over looking the lagoon, and amazing waterfalls and swimming holes. One had a great rope swing, and some Fijians did backflips and dives off the rope! We will write again soon from New Zealand, and we send out love from across the world! We will be watching the Superbowl Tommorrow, Monday at 11:30am, crazy huh! Go Seahawks!!!!!

Hey Mols and Conor: The pictures are amazing. I just started my new job this week (yuck) and looking at these photos, I'm already ready for my next vacation. We're making friends here, had dinner last night with 2 old friends and 2 new. The new girl turned out to be a windbag and trapped Mark in their living room showing him pictures of her dog when she was growing up. It was pretty funny...I could tell he was trying to get away from her. Today, we have a couples baby shower (at a bar) and a super bowl party. Nothing, compared to what you're doing, but still fun.

Mark caught his first mouse a few weeks ago. We should have stuffed and mounted it like a trophy kill, especially since it made him scream like a little girl the day before.

That's all the news from Raleigh for now. Can't wait for your next installment!

Hey guys -- Fiji looks amazing -- clearly not as beautiful as the Sunset district -- but pretty damn cool for sure! We missed ya @ our Super Bowl party last night -- Connor -- fear not -- i bet a good chunk of money on your Seahawks so I was as mad as you could be -- also -- i drank your share of beer -- which is awesome! Cooper enjoyed his first super bowl -- i've attached a photo of he and i enjoying a budweiser.

We miss ya -- Cooper took his first steps today -- that's right -- the little man WALKED! Pretty unreal stuff -- he'll meet ya @ the airport when you come home and show off his new skills.

Have some fun for us!
