Back home again!

We arrived home yesterday to nearly 4 feet of snow!!! We decided my "skateboard" looks more like a minivan than the Saturn. Daddy and Granty are out trying to get us cleared out today. Our WONDERFUL neighbors snow blowed most of the snow for us! It's still coming down today just in time for Santa to make his visit tonight. As we told Grant, Santa had fun vacationing in Hawaii too and he saved some of his visits for tonight!

Whale Watching

The last full day we spent in Hawaii we all went whale watching! Unfortunately we didn't get a great picture of one. Since I was holding Maggie in the sling I wasn't able to stand up at all so she and I didn't see any whales just a couple of tails. Peter and Grant however saw a whale jump entirely out of the water! Pretty cool!

Big night out

While in Hawaii Peter and I were able to go out on a couple of dates! Thanks to Grammy and Gary and Sue we enjoyed some special moments together!

Aqua Man!

The Wedding!

Here are some pictures from the wedding! You can see how beautiful the landscape is as well as the lovely couple. Afterward we all went to a restaurant together to celebrate. The boys were able to play on the beach while the adults tried to celebrate!

Yesterday afternoon we spotted Santa boarding his boat to make some rounds around the island! Maggie got an up close and personal visit while Grant got a view from Daddy's shoulder's!

More from Hawaii

The last couple of days have been fantastic! The weather is just perfect! Crystal clear blue skies and water, warm toasty sun and an occasional adult beverage for Peter and I! Grant and Maggie have been having so much fun with their cousins and we're all super excited for the wedding this afternoon!

Greetings from Maui! We are having a wonderful time! Here are a few pictures from our first couple of days! I'm sorry to hear about everyone being snowed in back in Spokane! Feel free to shovel our driveway and/or sidewalks if you need some extra shoveling to do! Ryan, Dean and Sharon have had quite a go at getting our here with the bad weather. It looks like they will all make it in this weekend. The kids are doing great! Grant is LOVING the hotel pool which has a sandbox island in it! Maggie isn't super jazzed about being in the water but she LOVES to hang out by the pool in her super cute bathing suit! She even met a new baby friend! Can you belive that baby is her age! And I thought Maggie was a big baby!
