Last Month in the U.S.


Michele visiting us in Seattle.
After our baby was born we were able to spend a little bit of time with some of our friends and family in Seattle, California, and in the South. There are still quite a few people very dear to us who we have not seen in a long time and we are so sorry we were not able to get together with everyone before leaving.
We are a little obsessed with our new baby right now so please bear with us as he is in every single picture . . .

Celebrating Natey’s 2nd birthday before we left. The best thing about being in Seattle over the past year has been getting to spend so much time with my little niece and nephew – Mia and Nate. I will miss them so much and can’t wait for them to visit us in Mozambique!
