A Long Weekend on Majuro
I had the opportunity to spend some time on Majuro this last weekend and I jumped on it. I was able to get a ticket with airline miles and Fire I flew off for a long weekend away from home. Our friends had a room for us to stay in and since they work at the Diabetes Wellness Center, there were whole wheat banana pancakes with peanut butter for breakfast almost every day. It was wonderful to get away for a little bit, especially with Fire. He's changing from a baby into a little person more and more each day and I really enjoyed spending time with him.
While we were there, Fire got to spend time with his birth family and I caught up with my friends who are heading back to the states soon. We heard a concert at the convention center, spent a day out on a small island off of Majuro, ate in restaurants, took naps and I got to read and watch television. As D would say, it was the perfect trip because I was happy to leave and happy to come home.
Fire loved playing with the pots and pans in this cabinet

We stayed in the same room when we were in Majuro for Fire's adoption last year. This chair, covered in a blanket and pulled up to the side of our bed was where he slept:
Same baby, same chair, 11 months later:

Did you know that conchs really do sound like horns when you blow into them?
There's my water baby!
These ladies work with Kathy at the Wellness Center and they did the cooking out on the island- the chicken they barbecued was so good!
I met these wonderful people at the restaurant at the MIR. Mark and April were on Majuro to adopt Tess. Congratulations again!
