Bali with the Dunn's

After Christmas we traveled to Bali to see some our friends the Dunn's.  During the trip we played at least 7 rounds of the game 5 Crowns (it is a game my parents brought and we played nightly with them also), swan a lot, ate some awesome food, laughed a lot and had a great time just hanging out with old friends.  The last time we were around the Dunn's - Shawn was the Children's Pastor at our home church and Jon was his assistant.  We laughed at how this was the first time we have gone somewhere with them that they weren't in charge of at least 30 kids.  Between the 4 of us we brought our own mini camp of 6 kids.  We stayed in the touristy area for a few days and then headed up to the mountains for the last few days.  Bali was a beautiful country and we enjoyed our time there however we are glad that we live in Japan the land of rule followers because the driving was a little nerve wracking at first and the 14 hour firework show put on by our neighbors was a little long.  Our last day there we decided to go to a waterpark instead of getting a hotel room since we would have to leave it by 8pm for our 1am flight.  Waterbom was fun and the girls even got a nap in our lawn chairs during the rain storm and finished out our last day in Bali swimming and hanging out in the Discovery Mall then sleeping on the floors of the airport.

The computer is not letting me put captions on the pictures - Bummer! 

Christmas 2014

For Christmas this year we planned a trip to visit friends in Bali so we spent Christmas day playing and relaxing with friends and then flew out the next day for a week of fun. 
This year we also hosted our second annual cookie/dessert Birthday Party for Jesus.  We invited friends to come over and enjoy some sweet treats and a bonfire and ended the night with poppers and singing Happy Birthday Jesus.
