It's days like this that make me never want to leave Hawaii

She is getting so fun a t the beach.
I know it looks like a mermaid
but we called it a fish cause she doesn't know what a mermaid is.
Off to do our important work...snail hunting
She is very determined to relocate the snails. She will do this for hours
How cute is that bum. Thanks for the cute suit Aunt Shelly!
In her hand is one of the snails. They are pretty small but full of entertainment
Tickets for the gun show anyone?
Marty enjoying the Hawaiian lifestyle on the SUP
We love our life!
Now when are you coming to visit us?

My Growing Kids

Hanalei...Two Years, Two Months
My iphone
swimming with mom
playing in the sand
looking for crabs and snails
talking on the phone, She will say, "Can you hear me?"
books...favorite at the moment Queen of Hearts a valentines day book
singing...favorite is Wheels on the Bus
cupcakes and gum, she asks for them constantly even when there are no cupcakes to be seen
counting things
I think her favorite color is purple because she always is drawn towards it. If their is a choice of colored cups or spoons or shoes, she wants the purple ones.

Hanalei Loves "Clay-Doh" as she calls it.
Granny got here this play-doh kit for her birthday and she can't get enough.
She loves to poke it with tooth picks and cut it with the spatula
A trip to the waikele outlets. There are more of these rides here
than anywhere in the world... okay I'm assuming, but there are a lot!
What's this you ask? Potty training?
We have given it a try a time or two.
We have been successful once while playing outside.
You can guess what's in the bowl...fine I'll tell you. #2
We found this little guy in our house. Hanalei said, "Little 'C'"
She knows her letters A-Z and is now learning their sounds.
She is one smart cookie!

Waimea...Three Months
At his two month (closer to 2 1/2) apt
he weighed in at 13 lbs 5 oz
He is sleeping better at night. He gets real cranky in the evening but thank goodness he takes a binky. He loves to sit up or stand up while I hold his hands. Then he gives you some adorable smiles and if your lucky, a few coos.

Waimea as you can see is getting
bigger and more adorable every day
While Hanalei played outside on the playground,
Waimea decided to take a nap in the baby swing.
Murry our kitty is always with us. He is like a guard cat.
When we go on walks he is waiting at the end of our drive for us to return.
He slept a long time...Heaven
How did I manage to get such a cutie pie
(teddy bear was totally forced into his arms but he had a good grip on it)
Rusty's little brother Marty is staying with us for the summer.
Waimea was Marty's first diaper change
The Kids

Hanalei fights us every night to get in the bath
but always has fun once she is in. She knows it all leads to bed time.
Waimea loves the bath. It calms the beast. He kicks and kicks.
Hanalei got kicked a few times in the bath and says "stop it please"
Can you see those cute dimples?
Her hair is getting outta control but she is reluctant to let me do it.
Her first pony tail...back to the drawing boards
Do you see how massive my boy is?

I was excited for Hanalei to really get into the
decorating portion of Easter. Rusty always does.
SHe was very excited about getting the dye everywhere
But when it came to the eggs she just wanted to eat them
Waimea was a little cranky... thank goodness for binkis
The next day we had a Easter party at our friends.
Hanalei found a piece of candy that needed to be eaten immediately
while hovering over her next victim
Bubbles are a toddler pleaser
I have some cute men in my life
Waimea found some eggs too
this is what happens when you ask Hanalei to smile. Adorable
Happy Easter!
