Wii love Sushi

Our friends Matt & Sarah had the fabulous idea of a Wii/sushi party. Brilliant! I am new to sushi, but I think I can finally say that I love it. The sushi tower had many varieties and maybe my favorite was the vegetarian with nothing but avocado and rice, but I still think that counts! And who doesn't love the Wii? We think its a blast, especially with a large group. My favorite game is tennis. Here are some pictures of the action:


Friday evening was our ward luau. A couple from Hawaii put the whole thing together and it was really great. Mike performed with the young men and Emily performed with the young women. Aloha!

Med School Party

On Friday we went to the med school party at the Children's Museum. Besides exploring the museum, there was plenty of laughing, dancing, seeing friends, and greeting the new students. It's crazy to think that we've been here for over a year and that Mike is officially a second year student. One year down. How many to go? We're not counting! We're just taking it all in and having a blast. We love Winston-Salem, we love Wake Forest, and we love being here together! Month long vacations apart are no longer allowed!

Remembering Machu Picchu

Mike returned this week from a month in Peru. One of the
highlights of the trip was, of course, Machu Picchu. The
pictures and stories remind me of the trip we took during
the summer of 2005. It was the most amazing place I've
ever been. It is easy to see why it was recently named
one of the new seven wonders of the world!
