It means that we spend most of our special occassions and holidays with just the two of us - and that can be a little lonely.
On the up side, it means we have been able to take the opportunity to travel to fun and wonderful places to visit them. In May, I was able to visit Mom and my sisters in White Rock and then to visit Sunni in Seattle and travel out to Orcas in the San Juan Islands together. We went whale watching and saw most of the members of the local pod of Orcas.
While we were there, Chris called to let us know that Asher Benjamin had arrived in their family. Mother and baby are doing well. We can't wait to snuggle him. He is so lucky to be in Chris and Rachel's special family:)
