Vacation and catching up

It's certainly been a while since we last posted a blog! I guess time does fly when you're having fun. :) Since our last post, we enjoyed another 1 1/2 months with friends and family in the states and have been back home in the Philippines for almost a month. Of course, the time in the states went by too quickly, but it was SO wonderful to catch up with friends and family.... Here are a few highlights of the trip:
It snowed in Indiana! Well, they were really only snow flurries, but with our tropical blood, it was a big deal. :)
visiting with Adam in Chicago...

Julie and Justin got to spend some quality time with Aunt Lynette and Uncle Chris in Dallas while Brian went to NMI (Nazarene Missions International) meetings in Singapore.
Justin's first highchair experience!
We had a great time in Denver with Julie's sister, Jessica - hiking in the snow, exploring the city, and hanging out with Jessica's fun friends.
Of course, watching the Spurs in the NBA playoffs was also a highlight of the trip... even though we didn't win, I think Justin fits in with the Rathburn family with his love of the Spurs! :)
One of our highlights in San Antonio with Julie's parents was taking Justin to the river for the first time! He looked pretty cool, but only enjoyed the water for about 5 minutes. :)
Well, there are literally hundreds of more pictures we could share - Grandparents can be quite the paparazzi! After anticipating and planning for so long, it was so hard to believe when our trip was over. We are so thankful for the time we had to see family and friends, and if we didn't get to see you, hopefully we can somewhere in the world, sometime soon! It is very good to be back home, though. We'll be writing more soon of other fun times in the states and of course, updating with more recent Justin pictures! :)

Life is good!
