Here are a bunch of photos from our amazing vacation the the Philippines with my sister and her husband and their 3 amazing kids!! What a blessing to be able to spend such sweet time with family! The beauty in the Philippines is awe inspiring, we love it there! (Just double-click on the picture to see it bigger.)

Andy doing the zip line in front of the volcano, Mt. Mayon.
My turn at the zip line, it was really cool . . those are trees below me . . . it was pretty high up!
5 out of the 6 cousins . . . we couldn't get Zoe to hang there . . . she was being very disobedient . . hehehehe ;) ! (left to right, Kayla 10, Ben 6, Eli 4, Gabby 6, and Zach 8) It was sooo special to be together!
Eli and Kayla at the wakeboard park . . . the kids had SO much fun there and really surprised both Andy and I with their bravery and willingness to try it out!
Gabby kneeboarding all on her own, she was a pro!
Gabs and Kayla on the kneeboard.
Andy and I in front of Mt. Mayon . . . it was a beautiful day!

The kids climbing on the ruins there by the volcano . . . so much fun!
I love getting a good family photo . . it doesn't happen very often!
ALL the cousins this time . . . Zoe too! :)
Another picture of the gang!
The boys!! SO TOUGH!
My (Bethany's) Dad showed up and surprised me!! It was so great to be able to spend some time with him, and he had fun being with all his grandkiddos!
Tubby time!!! We don't have a bathtub at our house here in Malaysia, so when we are on vacation and there is one, they REALLY enjoy it!!
Andy at the wake board park . . . he had such a blast . . . he ripped his hands up and got really sore muscles . . . but he said it was very worth it!
The kids hanging in the backseat of the car on the way to the wake board park . . . bunch of goofballs!
Hope you enjoyed these photos . . . we are looking forward to seeing a lot of you this upcoming year when we are stateside!!
