A FABULOUS GIFT

There was one last gift from all our children that they presented to us at the end of Richard’s birthday party,  Organized, prepared and printed by Saydi, it was something we will treasure forever.Selecting from literally thousands of pictures that everyone had sent to a drop box, Saydi, the master of digital books produced an astounding collection of photographs from Bali in a large format book that delighted everyone. All had contributed to the cost and ordered their own smaller version.

None of these pictures will really do the book justice because they are just pictures of pictures, but for us, as we viewed the real thing, it was almost like being there again! Memories flooded our minds!

This is one of our favorites as several of our 16 kids found each other at the airport in Bali. Do you think they are excited? And don’t you think Julie is an adorable baby, sticking her head our of Aja’s baby carrier (the real baby….toes sticking out… is asleep inside).

One of the the things that made us LOL was the fish tanks where people could dip their feet in while tiny fish nibbled the dead skin off their legs and feet. It was a win/win. The humans were cleaned up and the fish were well-fed.

The daily adventures were quite incredible. Th
