ALOHA...

We arrived home this morning from Hawaii! We had 11 days of Beautiful weather, Wonderful Friends, and Fabulous Food! We Boogie boarded, Skim boarded, Surfed, Built Disneyland out of Sand (olivia & cadens Favorite), Rode Waterslides, Rope Swings, Water Elevator (the only one in the world, its so cool) Spa, Termes, (Shannon & Jenn's Favorite), Riding in Golf Carts, Night Skimboarding, Night Swimming , Kids Camp, Crab Hunting, Shopped & Shopped and just enjoyed watching the kids play all day!

Boston, Hayes & Olivia at our Pool in Ho' olei

All of the boys, and Little Princess running across the bridge at the Grand Wailea! She was the only girl amongst all the Craziness, and she LOVED it!
I would have to say one of my Highlights of the trip was watching Hayes run up and down after the waves on the beach, it was SO Funny! He is one funny little kid. Then of course Olivia would get brave enough and follow after him. It was so fun to watch Olivia & Hayes play with their little cousin Carson too, (we met our cousins the Curry's for a few days too) She would follow him around all day if you would let her.


Boston and Cory taking Surf Lessons, and they did awesome! Boston now thinks that surfing is his Favorite Sport. He got up the first time and every time since!
WOO HOO!! {Boston on the left and Cory on the right} Riding the wave at the same time!
This was Hayes & Liv's way of Boogie Boarding! Hee hee
Boston was either Skim Boarding or Boogie boarding {You couldn't get those
boys out of the water}
These two are so fun to watch play together, they are so imaginitive.

These boys were so much fun and they would let Hayes tackle them in the Shallow part of the water, it was so funny!
Oh and this little "Missy" may hang with the boys all day, but she is ALL Girlie Girl!!

The Results of a SWEET Vacation with Sunshine!! {Is that not the cutest little bum ever??!!}

Oh and I missed out on a Gazillion Birthdays...HAPPY BIRTHDAY To Kyle, Blake, Laurel, Todd, Kelly, Jaxon, Zak and Soon SOPHIE!! Hope everyone had a fabulous birthday! (this is all just Family too, April is a crazy birthday month)
