We recently got back from a week’s vacation in Hawaii! We went to the Big Island for a friend’s wedding and made the most of our time there, visiting friends, eating yummy food, seeing the sights. Here are some highlights.
Checking out the tide pools and turtles:
Checking out the volcanoes and steam vents:
Checking out nature and parks:
Hanging out at the beach and swimming in the waves:
And of course, baseball at the beach!
A hui hou, Hawaii, until we meet again!
Several weekends ago we headed down to San Diego to spend a few days with the extended family. San Diego is a wonderful place to visit with kids and we really made the most of our short time there. We went to the world-renowned San Diego Zoo. There we saw all kinds of animals and Oliver took the lead photographers role. Here are some of our favorites:
Here’s the photographer:
After walking all over most of the park we treated ourselves to a tram ride back to the entrance.
We also visited the Sunny Jim Cave…
…got sneezed on by a sea lion…
…and went to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
But the best time was had swimming in the pool:
Whenever we are out and about, the boys and I are on the lookout for Heart Rocks. We find them everywhere, at the beach, on trails, in streams, or even on sidewalks. I try to take photos of them when we find them and here are our favorites from the year.
I sweet reminder that love is all around. Happy Valentine’s Day!
We had beautiful weather Thanksgiving weekend and after eating ourselves silly on Thursday, it was time to spend some time outside. Over the course of the long weekend we visited some of our favorite haunts.
And that’s it, I’m all caught up! Perfect timing for relaxing with the family on Christmas Eve.
