Surprise! 2000

To celebrate Tammy's 25th birthday, Luke thought it would be great if her mother would make a surprise visit . . . so we planned the surprise for in November of 2000. 

To start out, the surprise was on Rachel . . . Click for larger viewupon checking in at the desk in Los Angeles, CA, she discovered she had left her passport at home.  (Australia is like home -- who needs a passport?)  With plenty of time to spare, she called Randy who arranged to have it flown out on the next flight.  This fellow handed the expensive, but oh so necessary, passport package to her after it had come down the luggage ramp.

The majority of the time was spent with Tammy and her Australian family.  To follow are some photos of the trip, to see a larger view just double click on the small photo.  Most of the photos are of the boys, Michael 1 1/2, and Joshua 2 1/2, in-laws Bob and Bernice Pannekoek, cousin Daniel Cinzio and his new bride, Tammy, and of course, Tammy and Luke.
