Las Vegas to LA, California... our last stop before heading to PNG!
Naomi turned 4 months old in the airport!
We visited my aunt and uncle near LA and headed up getting a chance to see our friend, Ope as well. :) Unfortunately I am not so good at picture taking with a baby and 4 year old yet...
Then we were on our way again...
Naomi had her own bed on our 11 1/2 hour flight from LA to Figi!
From Figi we went to the Solomon Islands for a brief stop before arriving in the capital of Papua New Guinea, Port Moresby... here we were waiting for our final flight... Jonathan loves to make Naomi laugh!
And here we are... in Wewak, Papua New Guinea~!
Thank you all for praying!!

And we are off.... now from Tennessee to Las Vegas to visit my sister and family... and my mom flew in too!
We did a lot of sleeping on the planes!
It was so fun to be with my mom and sister and family again!
My sister Ruth, Jonathan, Naomi and I enjoying the sights
Jonathan waiting for the flash flood to come down the rock.

My sister is 6 foot 1 inch but this tallest man is WAY taller then her!!
We enjoyed a family get together to celebrate three birthdays in our family! Jack, Jonathan and Alena! Very fun!

Our last mother daughter photo, all cozy and warm before we left for PNG!
We left Halifax, Nova Scotia in the very early morning and it looked like this!! We weren't sure if the plane was going to leave! But it did! Just a 1/2 hour delay!
Our last glimpse of snow for 2-3 years!
Naomi seemed to enjoy the plane rides, but not the freezing cold snow!
We had a variety of activities on the planes... we ate...
Jonathan always seems to be able to sleep comfortably!
And Naomi did too!
And then we arrived in Fargo, North Dakota... but we were missing Jonathan's coat... hence the very large sweatshirt... thankfully it was 50 degrees F in Fargo for the few days we were there! And he didn't need a coat anymore after
We went to visit Marcie who has done so much for us in PNG! Whenever we need something from Walmart, or Jacob needs a part for something in the workshop, we email Marcie and she sends it our way, very quickly!
Bob and Marcie and their daughter Laurie.. we had a great visit!
Naomi helped pack up our suitcase after our trip to Fargo!
We just had our babies 3 weeks apart! Eli and Naomi :) Future friends :)
And our other sons, Sarah's James and my Jonathan.
They loved playing together!
And then back to the airport... the airline gave Jonathan this cool little wooden plane that he played with until we got on the next flight!
