tsunami

Hi All,

Just wanted to say a quick hi since I finally got some internet. Seriously internet access in NZ is hard to come by unless you are willing to pay an arm and a leg. Thankfully we met up with our old neighbor, Dean, and he had an internet card so we can gain some access. We met up with him and some friends yesterday at a concert in a small town. We got into the concert about an hour before it ended and for FREE!! We searched and finally found Dean in the sea of people!!!It was so nice seeing him and catching up. We stayed with them last night at the motel!

We woke up to the news and instantly heard about the earthquake in Chile. Yikes. What is happening in this world. Unfortunately the earthquake was not only felt in Chile but there are tsunami warnings in NZ. The east coast is only affected but the waves are expected to be between 1 and 3 meters. Just want you all to know we are safe and away from the coast.

I will try and write more in a day or so! Hope all is well and we miss you guys! I can almost say, we will see you NEXT month!!!!!!!

Love,
B and K8

We're glad to hear that you guys are safe and sound. We watched the news most of the day wondering how you were doing and to see how Maui would come out and it has turned out to be a non-event so far. We had Wyatt yesterday and turned her facing forward in her car seat which made it much more fun to take her for a ride while we did some errands. She had her first swim lesson at the Y as a Super Shrimp today but we missed seeing her as we were glued to the TV tsunami watch. We'll look forward to your next post. Love, Dad & Mom

We are holding off on Wyatt's first b-day and Jeff's 36th until for you get home so we can do all(including yours) on the same day! An on going tradition on the Heacox side to combine b-days. We can't wait to see you! Enjoy, keep having fun!
