Happy 4th!

Happy Fourth of July!

Sam enjoyed sparklers for the first time last night, and he loved every second of it.

We are all doing great. Sam is as active as ever, Aaron is really enjoying his job, and I am getting more pregnant by the minute. We've been enjoying the summer so much, and a lot of that has to do with our new outdoor living space. We have been hard at work making our back patio a nice place to relax in the evenings, and it has been a success. Aaron got a grill for Father's Day, and so we love to grill dinner and eat it outside together. The best part is the after-dinner entertainment. We have a really pretty small lake/large pond right behind our home, and a family of baby ducks makes a regular appearance after dinner. We come prepared with bread slices, and Sam loves to feed those baby ducks every night.

Living on the coast here in Florida has been such a fun cultural experience for us. Aaron has learned some new hobbies, and his favorite new thing to do is go spear fishing. He is getting really good at fishing, and he especially likes spear fishing. Essentially, he snorkels out in the ocean near some reefs, and throws a spear at a fish while he swims. It has been fun to see him enjoy new hobbies, and it has been delicious to taste the fresh fish he brings home!

Hope you enjoyed your 4th of July!


  1. Bethany! It is so wonderful to read how great you all are doing. Aaron is one brave guy, Yasuhito laughs at me when i tell him that i am convinced a shark is going to eat me if i go out into the water. I think mom had us watch Jaws one too many times. And hey, i would like to see some pregnancy pictures please! Tell Sam we say hi! Love you all!!

  2. Looks like Sam had a blast with the sparklers. I can't wait to come out and feed the ducks with Sam. :-)
    What a fun hobby for Aaron, I would like to see it in action some day!!
