We're SO Close!

Thank SO much to everyone who has been viewing the blog! We appreciate all the times you have visited the page to help us bring up the view count. We are enjoying our last morning at the beach before we pack up to come home. Ja-Z and KT will update the bog again once we arrive in Amsterdam so please keep visiting so we can hit our 20,000 goal and give you guys a special treat (in addition to our return).

We're counting on you to bring us to 20,000. You can do it!


  1. Safe Travels to all of you. Can't wait to see those smiling faces tomorrow. Love Momma

  2. Dear Lizzy Baxter,

    Well, it's 6:16am Tuesday Feb. 1, 2011 in Herndon VA and Mommy and I are getting up for work. It's about 3:16pm Tuesday Feb. 1, 2011 Tanzania time and in about 9 hours you will be leaving Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for Amsterdam and home. We will be at about the end of another day's work, when you fly home.

    As you pack and leave Pembe Abwe on your charter flight to Dar es Salaam, we look forward to your return, your stories and your pictures. We're very glad you went! Safe home for everybody!
