Happy Gotcha Day!

On February 27, 2010 our family of five flew to Chiang Mai to get Rebekah.  On February 28, 2010 we got her and we became a happy family of six!  Happy Gotcha Day, sweet Rebekah Deer!

We went out for dinner tonight at a new Thai place here in Okinawa.  Rebekah said it was "Aroy" (delicious in Thai).  Gotcha Day is technically tomorrow, but tonight worked better for our celebration.  We sang "Everlasting God" by Chris Tomlin on the way home, as that was our "Deer Song" that we sang while we waited for her to come home.  Lastly, we ate homemade chocolate oreo ice cream, which Mark made for us.  Two years and counting!
