Celebrating Our Independence In Jersey

We had a wonderful trip to Jersey last week to visit my sister Diehnee and the rest of "Team Hognon" as well as spending the 4th with the Duckers who live just South on the Jersey Shores. We kept very busy in Summit, welcoming a new fire engine to the Chatam Township Fire Dept, playing at the children's museum and spending good time with family. Sophie enjoyed meeting Sarah and Jack as well as Uncle Chris. Jack kept Sophie busy the second she arrived! Thanks D and crew we had a blast!
We spent the 3rd-5th with our fellow Holt buddies Rich, Jackie and Mya Ducker whom we share a very special bond with. They were with us at the same time in Viet Nam to be united with their beautiful daughter Mya Grace. The girls had a wonderful time with each other and the parents did as well. We had some wonderful food and laughs with great friends. We plan on keeping the girls in touch as much as possible. Thanks Duckers, it was very special!
