Sightseeing with JaRissa

Saturday morning and we'd seen all the houses we planned to see. JaRissa was off work. We headed out for a drive along the Turnagain arm, up to Beluga Point and Bird's Creek.  We enjoyed the drive, the conversation and de-stressing after the busy week.

Not sure of the  mountain names taken from Beluga Point
Love this girl! Larissa and me.

I'm sorta smitten with this man too! 

JaRissa - our ADVON (military term -  Advanced Liaison)

Lots of texts for a retiree! LOL  I think he was communicating with Mark, realtor

Gideon Arrives

About 0100 we received a phone call from Bre. From the sound of her voice and the symptoms she was describing I knew she was in labor and suspected she was in or nearing transition. This was five weeks early and there had been no warning signs or expectations that Gideon would arrive early.

Gideon had his own plans and joined us TODAY. Bre nearly had him in the car, but arrived at the hospital, one push, and here he is.

He's really quite big for his age - 5 lbs and 4 oz and 18 inches long. He's having a bit of trouble with breathing, but other than that is doing well.

We are praising God that Gideon arrived safely and that he is doing so well.
