In the middle of March our friends from the great white north came to visit us. We had lunch with Mark and Tania Murphy, their daughter Malia (from Utah) and son Jack and grandson Benson. We went to a Thai restaurant and had a great time catching up. Then we invited them to our house for dinner on Saturday night...they pulled a joke on us and called to cancel at the time they were supposed to arrive...little did we know they were already in our driveway...those funny guys!!!! We had another great meal and then talked and laughed about the good times in Okinawa. Their family is growing up and Malia...wow..she is beautiful and very fun! In fact...she and another friend from Okinawa came to Lilly's blessing on March 2nd...it is so much fun to see old friends!!! It makes me very grateful for all our wonderful friends that we have met around the world!!! We are so blessed!
