1 Quick beach time with Daddy before he headed back into work.
2 On a hike with Angel and April - Ben has a stick to beat mommy with :)
3 Anyone know what this is?
4 More swinging time!
5 The Old Pali Rd - part of the hike.
7 Old old papaya tree!
8 Look at those fruits!
9 Likeke Falls!
11 Sam enjoyed romping all around.
14 On a run at Pearl Harbor - playing in the sprinklers is always fun, especially huge ones!
15 One of our favorite bike-runs around the fish ponds - looking for Mr. Hammerhead shark!
16 Then went down another big one.
17 Trying to catch a picture of this guy is hard unless you head him off in a tunnel!
18 Out on a long training run with the boys - 9 miles pushing stroller. Not sure I'll do that again any time soon. My pelvis felt like it was going to fall out later in the day. BUT it was a great time to homeschool - captive audience with book in hand! ha!
19 Out at the beach for Mikko-Dakota's 4th birthday party.
20 Fun to see the boys swimming again - we've only been home less than 48 hrs by this point :)
21 Doing a little "stomp" dance he learned from Uncle Steve!
23 My friend Liisa, the photog and mom of MD.
24 Finding "bones"!
25 Love this shot of Sam!
26 And this one of Ben!
27 Sitting and watching Big Brother's tricks.
28 He kept rolling off the back of the rock and cracking up. He'd roll off in slow-mo with a smile on his face.
29 Sam looking for a good high point to jump from.
30 How about this?
31 Funny mommy serving dinner in a dump truck :)
32 Our friends from the C5 out on a hike with us!
33 And Kathy and Caleigh, of course!
34 The bunker-top crew snacking.
35 Sam loves to shimmy up anything pole-like.
36 New friend Caleb (5) gettin' a little crazy for the camera :)
37 The gang - thanks Kristi!
38 Ben hikes in the pack on the way up and on his own on the way down. He loves to be on his own. Big boy now!
39 The harness is a life-saver. When he wipes out I can save him centimeters from a nose-plant. He doesn't want to hold hands (and granted I'd rather not, either, because then I have to hunch down a bit).
40 Sam really worked hard at getting all the way up this pole. He finally succeeded!
