Summer Updates 2008

Hello everyone

There is plenty of news about the Banos family these days so I figured I would take the opportunity to update everyone (just in case you didn't already know).

In PWAC CC generation 2 news Betsy and I are both pregnant again! Baby Vaicius is due in January and Baby Rinehart is due shortly thereafter in February. If I am late and Betsy is early these babies might share a birthday - now that would be cool.

Lucy spent 3 weeks in Atlanta visiting Nana and Papa-T and hanging out with her cousins, Liam and Wes. She had a great time but I missed her like crazy. I was away from her for 2 weeks and doubt I will ever do that again - it was too long!

Christian and I spent a week traveling around Portland, Seattle and the San Juan Islands, where we visited with Richmond who is out there working again this summer for Wilderness Ventures. He took us sea kayaking, which was one of the coolest things I have ever done.

Little Luis finished a triathalon - how cool is that??? I am very impressed. Luis and Anne headed up to watch him compete and captured a few great pictures:

Josh turned 31 and was in town visiting for the week of his birthday. While he was in town we all got together for a birthday dinner (and doberge cake) to celebrate:

It dawned on me recently that I am the only one of the cousins living in New Orleans these days (other than Molly P but she doesn't have a choice at this point). So, will one of you please move back to NOLA? Just checking...

Please let me know if you guys have any other news-worthy information as I am sure I left out some interesting things.

Edward and I will be in town and in Thib from August 7-14. He's gotten soo big, is talking all the time and can't wait to see everyone! He's very excited about getting on the airplane to go and visit Mimi and Pepere. I'm finally feeling a little bit better after a very rough few weeks. Oh, and by the way, I just might have a bigger pregnant belly than Julie already, so watch out!!!
Hope everyone is doing well- thanks for the updates, Julie!
