I LOVE that I can log onto my computer, get on Skype and see my adorable little grandaughter babbling, smiling, laughing and playing in real time!

I feel so blessed to have had another exciting "Arabian Adventure". We were able to take a trip to the Red Sea which is on the other side of Saudi Arabia (between Saudi and Egypt). One of the many perks of working for Aramco is the company jets. They fly all over for business and if they are not full, you can request a ride for a certain time. A few days before, they confirm if they have room for you. The best thing is that it's totally free! The one downside is that there are no guarantees that they will have room for your entire group. So....Donna, Rusty and Abigail....we missed you alot!! We will go again. For sure!Wednesday afternoon the Masons met us at our house and we headed to the Aramco airport. There we met new friends, Randy and Jennifer, who are new-hires with Aramco. We boarded our jet and headed to Yanbu. It's about a two hour flight. We checked into the Holiday Inn and checked out the buffet.
All in all, a perfect week-end. We got back on the plane about 9:00 and got back to Dhahran around 11:00. So glad to be able to share these experiences with my family and good friends.....although Ivy, Calder, Piper and Taylor~ we missed you and wish you could be here with us!
