GIADA LYNN KOVAL

Born: July 21, 2013
Where: Ancona, Italy
Weight: 8.4 lbs

Hey Uncle Tom,

Thanks! We are so excited and feel so blessed to have Giada. God is good!
Yes, one of the reasons we liked the name Giada was because we didn’t know anyone else with the name and it is a rather unique name. Plus, it is an Italian name. Then after we named her, we found out our next door neighbor’s girlfriend is Giada! Too funny. And Lynn is not only mom’s middle name, but mine too 🙂
Glad you liked the pictures.
Have a good day!
Rebecca

McGraths fish House in Salem or for more fish than we can eat

2013/07/06

Pat. Sierra’s landlord, found this place acceptable. It’s a good fish place. A little in the expensive side.

My snapper was fresh and well prepared. The halibut was good also. There was leftovers as too much food was ordered.

CMD and Sierra and Craig and Suzy all were stuffed.

Afterwards we went SW despicable me. It’s a well done funny movie.
