I did not take many pictures of family events in 2004, mainly because I did not spend much time with our family this year. I started the year in Machu Picchu with Adele. We were into the 2nd week of our 3 month world tour. We returned home on the Spring Equinox, March 22nd, after an incredible journey and adventure.
In April we drove up to Colorado to visit Crestone and Mesa Verde (pictures to follow eventually). We met a lady in Luxor, Egypt, on our 3 month "World Tour" who owned a house in Crestone that we were curious to see. We also drove out to see the Tibetan Buddhist Stupa dedicated to the previous incarnation of the present Karmapa.
In May I returned to Louisiana for James and John's Baptism. Unfortunately, I got my flight time wrong and missed my flight. I caught the next flight out and arrived just in time to see the end of James and John's Baptism. I stayed a couple more days and visited Mom, Marc, Jackie and Steve and met John and James for the 1st time. They were about 6 months old. I cannot recall anything else about my visit (that's the problem with not taking pictures!).
In August Adele and I returned to the Big Island of Hawai'i with her daughter Christy to swim with the dolphins and have fun. We had a fantastic time; I love Hawai'i. Mahalo baby :-)
In October Adele and I joined David Wilcock and others for David's cruise through the Caribbean to heal the Atlantean Wound. That was a fun and interesting experience. Adele and I did some snorkeling and swam with captive dolphins for hte 1st time (we obviously prefer to swim with wild dolphins). Although again unfortunately, I did not take any pictures. I really dropped the ball with my photography this year :-(
Mom and Marc came out to Sedona to visit us for Thanksgiving. We went to ENCHANTMENT RESORT® for Thanksgiving dinner and experienced an incredibly cold dining room and somewhat disappointing (for ENCHANTMENT®) food. I felt really happy to see Mom and Marc again and really enjoyed their visit. Mom looked good. Marc and I did some hiking around Sedona. Specifically, we hiked Cathedral Rock 1 day. Another day we hiked part of the way up Thunder Mountain.
Adele's friend Schae came to visit us the week after if I recall correctly. Schae was fun, and we had a great visit with her :-)
For Christmas we celebrated at our friends Adam and Carmen's house in Cornville with other friends. other than that, we spent most of the year getting settled into our new house and adopting a new dog named Mandy (Mandy is now living with someone else because we could not keep her safely inside a 6 foot tall fence). And that was my 2004.
