I do wish we had those kids and that Ben was done with school, but I would not give up where we are or any of the experiences we have had to get here. People tell us all the time to take advantage of this time, this time with no kids where it is just the two of us. Well, we are definitely doing just that! This weekend we took a ferry out to the island of Bohol. I know some of you are asking why we need to go to another tropical island when we already live on one. Well, Bohol is like the quaint, quiet, old fashioned, restful, calm, clean, no traffic, no people, no stray dogs, no garbage, better version of Cebu. We needed a break from this place and Bohol was the perfect place to do it. We spent time relaxing in a hammock by the ocean, eating great burgers and home made pizzas, climbing the chocolate hills, having lunch on the Loboc River, seeing tiny monkeys and huge pythons, crossing a hanging bridge and just enjoying the history of this place. We loved every second of it (maybe not the power outage from 7am to 7pm on Sunday). We were also mindful of how very blessed we are to be safe and healthy and alive after the horrible disasters in Japan.
I cannot wait to see where we are five years from now! Happy Anniversary Babe. I LOVE YOU!

|Tarsiers....tiny, awesome little monkeys native to Bohol|
|I don't like heights and a "hanging bridge" didn't seem really safe, but it was fun anyway|

|We went to a butterfly sanctuary, I loved it|
|The Chocolate Hills (this doesn't even do them justice, they were amazing)|
