The Disney Cruise

We just got back from the Disney cruise. I have to say, it was pretty fun!

What a handsome guy!

The dolphins were a little scared of ray. They wouldn't get too close to him.

All cleaned up for formal night

Ray doing what he does best. Entertaining the kids!

The Drill Accident

Ray was working late Saturday night on the house installing our shower door. All of the sudden I heard him kind of moaning, "ow ooh ooh ooh aw!" I walked in and saw blood all over the floor leading to where Ray was washing his hand. Basically what happened was while Ray was drilling a hole through the door, the drill bit broke causing the drill to jump and drill right through Ray's middle finger. He said it was pretty crazy seeing the drill through the other side. He had to actually reverse the drill to get it out of his finger! But he is fine. Luckily, the drill missed the bone and any nerves or soft tissue.

The thing I love about Ray is how easily he sees the good in things. As he was walking out the door to the emergency room he said, " I am so blessed. This could have been so much worse".

Then, when he got home from the hospital at 1:00 a.m. he actually finished the shower door!

I just love that guy!
