Phew, it's all over...we finally did it.  If you didn't know, Wendy and I got married on

October 20, 2001 in Las Vegas.  If you couldn't make it, click here for our wedding site

that we used for communicating all the details to our guests (and it has pictures!!).


After the wedding, we went on a 7-day cruise on the Carnival Elation around the Mexican

Riviera.  Stops in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas were all great, with Cabo

being our favorite spot.  After all of the stress of buying a house in Ventura and preparing

for our wedding, it was really nice to just relax on the boat, lay out on the Mexican beaches,

and eat tons of food...


Mom and Dad, after years of traveling around in their RV, are finally getting ready to settle

down.  While they sell the RV, they are renting a small apartment in Las Vegas.  They both

really like Las Vegas, and it is only a 5 hour drive from Ventura...


After spending the summer with us, Amy, Tony, Kay and Charlie went back home to Japan.

We're still waiting to find out what Tony's next assignment with the Marines will be...

given the September 11th incidents, we're all a bit on edge that he may be called to the

front lines...
