Guess Who I Ate Breakfast With Bright and Early This Morning?


That's right. . . . Adjoa!

Through Jill, we heard about 2 Utah families that were in Ghana and coming home Wednesday. We quickly threw some plans together {ok, it took about 3 hours} and she boarded the plan a few hours later.

Then Robert and I were in a mad dash to get the house ready. Don't be mad. I wanted it to be a surprise.

Weren't you surprised????
