Hello Hawaii

Mark and I had an AMAZING time in Hawaii. We spent an unprecedented 8 days away from our kids, work, and everything else. It was our first time to Hawaii, and we celebrated our 15th anniversary (9 months late!) by scuba diving, snorkeling, EATING, resting, watching dolphins & whales, and touring a bunch of different sites on Oahu. It was FABULOUS!!!

Carol and Karen's Reproductive Efforts

My kids with their Burton cousins (Karen's kids). Mine are the ones with the craziest and/or somberest faces ("crying baby", "congratulating-self-6-year-old": back right), "I-need-to-be- the-center-of-attention-at-all-times-12-year-old": center, "making-rabbit-ears-girl", and "four-eyes"-front right).

Barbie Laptop

Kyle with one of his favorite toys....the Barbie Laptop. At least Hailey has one brother who shares some of her interests.

Maybe it is just because I have four BOYS, but I don't remember making scary (bloodshot) eyeballs out of my hard-boiled eggs on easter. It seem to me that my sisters and I drew lovely Easter chicks, or bunnies, or some pastel-colored designs on ours. Leave it to boys to warp this otherwise happy spring-time tradition!
