Actually, it is not for 1000 days. It is just that 3 years times 365 days plus June 27 through June 30, 2008 equals 1098 days, and that is way too cumbersome to convert into a blog headline. Futhermore, our release date will not be determined until May or June of 2011. Therefore, 1000 Days sounded just about right, more or less. Having noted all that, we are humbled and thrilled (Pres. Uchtdorf would refer to the feeling as "joyfully overwhelmed") about having this marvelous opportunity to serve in La Mision Mexico Veracruz.

Final Hawaii Pictures

On our last morning we snapped this photo on the steps of the berm. The beach is behind us about 20 yards. Becca's backdoor is behind the camera about 20 yards. We are all wearing our new Red Dirt Shirts which they make on the island from rusted red volcano dirt. They also make Red Dirt Shirts there for Moab, Utah and Zion National Park. The Red Hills of Utah, you know.

I thought I was all finished taking pictures until Bec spotted this large garden spider on the neighbor's house. We were literally loaded and on the way to the airport, but I couldn't resist a final nature shot. The spider is at least as big as a silver dollar. Nothing like a good Kodak moment. Aloha Oe.>

You were right, Dad. I do like these pictures. It is so hard to tell my tan nephews apart! Except the littlest one, of course. I'm glad you guys had a great time.

(I bet Jane loved the spider...eee)

Hi Brother and Sister Hansen! I just found Jane's blog this morning - so happy to have found her after a few years - and wanted to say hi to you both, too! Good luck in Mexico!
Love from Atlanta,
