We returned form our Carnival cruise on the Carnival Conquest today. What a great time we had! Everyone had so much fun we are finally resting. It is tough to have that much fun for 7 days in the warm sun. Not really. We did it!

Jeffrey had a band concert this October, his first at the local high school (Campus High). He did great! I shot some video and took a couple of pictures. The video is pretty good except for the fact that we sat behind ‘big ears’ with a tall head. Jeffrey is on the right in the third row back with the blonde hair and white t-shirt.As you can see from the picture, his grandparents came to cheer him on.
