I think I just realized it's August! Where did July go?? It's a blur - a beautiful blur. Did we really go to Hawaii? It seems like a dream ...
Did I mention that we stayed on Pipeline? and were only a few doors down from a famous eco-conscious musician who also surfs? His initials are JJ. Unfortunately we didn't see him because he was touring Europe. Check out the beach. It was awesome! So big and we practically had it to ourselves.
happy hour on the beach
like our matching sweatshirts? this was at 7 am before a morning snorkel
shaved ice in haleiwa
sadly I wasn't home when Kim & Tony (who just brought their baby girl, Bella, home from SK) stopped by - but at least they got to meet the Brians and the kids!
The photos below were taken on our last day on Oahu. They make me laugh because we were minutes away from leaving the house, which had to be vacated because the cleaning crew was coming in. The husbands were ready to get in the car and GO but of course we (I) just had to take a few last minute snaps of the whole crew including Ngaoi (Y) and Grandpa are Diana's (and Chris') parents. They are also surrogate grandparents to Ruby and Kaneu. Ruby fell in love with Grandpa and I'd like to think the feeling was mutual. Every now and again she'll ask me where Grandpa is and tell me how Y gave her gum.
all the kids with Y and Grandpa
There are hundreds more photos to sort through. The next post will be of Kona!! Though it may be up in a few days because tomorrow the kids and I are flying to Virigina. Wish us luck as this will be my first solo transAtlantic flight with both of the littles. Yikes!!
