Bokka’s 60th Birthday Disney Cruise (VIDEO)

For my 60th birthday (May 28, 2010), all I wanted was to spend time with all the kids & grandkids.  And what better way to do that than to go on a Disney Cruise with all 15 of us?!!!  Everyone had a blast, especially the kids.  Since I was still recovering from my back surgery, I could not participate in all the events … but I did my darnedest to keep up.

Lo & behold, Koby just put together a FABULOUS video montage to remember our wonderful trip together.  Click on the link below & ENJOY!

One of my 60th birthday gifts from the “kids” was a photo session by Shannon Wright of Pure Photography.  These gorgeous photographs were taken quite some time ago, but here a few to enjoy:

Meet our Israeli Family … the Aravas!

Not only did we have the greatest weekend hosting Temple Israel’s guide, Kobi Arava, & his daughter, Yeela, & son, Aviad … but we gained a whole new family.  We cannot wait to take all our kids & grandkids on a family adventure to Israel, with Kobi as our guide.  The grandkids will see Israel through the fun, exciting, activity-centered eyes of the expert, Kobi.  Stanley & I continued to learn more about Israeli life & history through Kobi’s incredible story-telling.  We already miss the 3 of them.  Thank you for coming into our lives!

Aviad, Yeela, & Kobi Arava

The grandkids had a ball introducing the Aravas to life on the lake … boating, waterskiing, jumping off the boat in the middle of the lake.  Here are my cuties, enjoying the great Michigan summer weather this past weekend:

Koby’s Debut Drum Solo (VIDEO)

Look out, Gene Krupa!  Koby Ben-Ezra made his public debut, last night, performing a drum solo at the West Maple Elementary School Talent Show.  He was fabulous!!!  With full arm tatoos, this kid got down & delivered a beat that just made you want to move.  He’s definitely a rocker.

Charlie’s Hat Trick

We all cheered as Charlie scored 3 goals & 2 assists that day to help the Blackhawks win their game.  Great skating, Charlie!  Not pictured: Janis & Harvey Eisman who trekked in from Flint to root on Charlie.  Jan & H, we love you guys!!!

Happy New Year 2010!!!

Sending an arms-full of good wishes your way for a fun, healthy, & prosperous new year!
