So, it was a REAL bummer that John wasn't able to be with us and participate in the week. We had a good time and it was fun, but it would have been so much MORE so if he had been there, too. He's out of the hospital now, hurrah, after a successful procedure yesterday to remove some of the problematic gallstones, enlarge the bile ducts and recover. He'll still have to have his gallbladder out in 4 weeks or so, but the 17-day hospital ordeal is at least over. And now we can start planning to get together again, this time for real...maybe at Christmas!

And that's the end of the photo-bombing, I promise! :)
