More Visitors Escaping Snow

Our dear friends Rick and Wendy Picariello from Boston are visiting us this week.  We should just turn our home into a bed and breakfast!  We love having visitors and sharing our lives here with those we care about.  It makes it more real and continues that bond of special friendship.  Asher and Anna were quite devastated that their kids Isaac and Isabella didn't come along but the kids are still having fun tagging along on yet another Thorson tour of Hawaii.

Mary with Diana Carvalho and Wendy Picariello.  Diana and Wendy are friends from high school.  When Wendy heard Joel and I were moving to Hawaii, she knew Diana was here and hooking the two of us up.  Diana was the first person I met in Hawaii.  She came and rescued me and the kids from our long stay in a hotel every now and then when we moved here and were waiting for a house on base, and her family have become good friends of ours here.  Wendy has really enjoyed catching up with 2 long term friends.  Diana is my friend who just happens to see all the Lost actors.

The Thorson's, Carvalho's, and Picariello's enjoying dinner together.

And OK "Losties" know how we have been here a year and I have been trying to hunt down Lost actors and filming locations to no avail.  Well, Rick and Wendy have been here for 4 days and just happened to stumble upon them filming today while driving around the island in a car we lent them.  They don't even care about the show!!!  Unbelievable!


  1. It is so cool to see Rick and Wendy with you guys! You are probably getting pretty good at showing people around Hawaii. Glad you are having fun!

  2. Of course the non-Losties found them. You guys look wonderful and it is so great to Rick and Wendy relaxing and having a great time.
    You are becoming quite the tour guide...maybe you should consider hiring yourselves out. Keep having fun, so I can keep living vicariously through you.

  3. Some day Mary. You too will run into 'Jack' or 'Hurley'. And then we all won't stop hearing about it :)

  4. Thanks for such a great time, Mary!! I must get a copy of that picture with the girls!
