We had such a wonderful time together – lots of laughs, peace and quiet, the sounds of birds dancing in our ears, clouds drifting by high above the trees, and cool breezes at night. Enjoy the pictures and little vignettes from our trip by clicking the photo above 🙂 Funny side note from last night – just before bed Sam had to use the bathroom. He was so deliriously tired that we heard him talking from the bathroom loudly “We got there TWO HOURS EARLY!” then “We were there at EIGHT and setup by NINE!” or something to that effect. Then “I SEE YOU IN THERE!” So I went back to peek – he was yelling at his reflection in the toilet paper holder – the little mirror ball thing at the end! Tooooo funny!
Thanks to great friends who have kids about the same ages as ours, we were able to enjoy a relaxed beach party to kick off the weekend. The party continues on Monday and Tuesday when I take the boys camping 🙂
And TODAY is my brother’s birthday – I am so happy that Ben and Doug are connected by a birthday that is only 1 day apart. I hope you are having a great day, Dougo! I love you very much! Talk to you in a bit 🙂 Yer sis…
Thank you to everyone who sent us fun presents and wonderful clothes! I hope you enjoy this uncut video of Sam and Ben performing a series of thank-you episodes. They were so funny, but you know what was funniest was watching them watch themselves! Squeals of laughter as we all huddled around my little camera to replay the video (before it made its way onto the computer, and now finally onto the web). It’s 8 minutes… I thought you might enjoy seeing the boys vs getting a card or email as I have not been good about posting video lately! We love you! Click here: 2010-feb-mahalo-the-sam-and-ben-show
Mom and our friend Sean (a manager at our favorite restaurant who is always so nice to our kids) came along. Mom even brought me a latte! Small split shot soy…say that three times fast 🙂 It’s raining out now – it’s been a really dry January – but it was nice to hike on fairly dry ground for a Hawaii winter. Usually the roots and red clay dirt are way slick! Mom did a great job keeping up with us on her first real adventure since getting sick. I don’t even think she whooped today!
