Kuala Lumpur

Our dear friends, the Priedemans, moved to Malaysia at the beginning of 2011. We were so sad to see them go, but knew that we would keep in touch with them, whether they liked it or not. With Burke arriving in the spring, we figured the soonest we could visit was in the fall, so we started to plan a trip to Kuala Lumpur (KL) for Eid al Adha.

Well, it actually happened, and we were able to visit. We spent three days in KL with them and then spent a few more days on an island, Langkawi. They were the most gracious hosts, and they went above and beyond in making sure we were comfortable and cared for. Leoni had a hard time with the time change, having hallucinations several times about needing to comb her hair the first night, but we were so blessed to deal with that in the comfort and company of friends. The best part was just being able to visit with them and their children. Leoni loved having the attention of "older girls." and Burke liked anyone and everyone's attention. We can't thank them enough for their generosity. My only regret was, why didn't I take more pictures?
