Day 1 - Honolulu

Woke up early this morning to make our flight to Hawaii. A long layover in Honolulu allowed us to spend the afternoon at Pearl Harbor. Wow!!

The names of those who died that day.

The memorial is built directly above where the USS Arizona still lays today. Of the 21 ships destroyed that day only 3 of them never returned to service.

Gray enjoying his turn on top of the USS Bowfin submarine.

Of course Sean couldn't resist touching.

So many shiny knobs, buttons and thingy-ma-bobbers I wanted to touch and take pictures of.

What an amazing piece of American History that I ashamed I didn't know more about.

Since I am a super lame mom I'm using another photo from my friend Gretchen. She took great photos of our kids on Halloween. Here's a picture of Bryn and her good friend Morgynn.

Bryn's costume may warrant a little explanation. She is Gir from Invader Zim in his dog costume. So basically her costume is a cartoon character's costume. My head was spinning when I was told by Bryn that she wanted me to make her Gir costume. Despite my reservations it worked out perfect. Hunter's old neon sweatshirt was the perfect base. We took the zipper off and sewed up the front and then added the felt pieces. She can even where it as a sweatshirt now that Halloween is over. The girl has vision.


zombie #1. the picture is by our good friend gretchen.

Kickin It

Picked up these new kicks last week. Tried them out last Thursday and it hurt so bad. Did I really run a marathon a few years ago? Looking forward to another attempt tomorrow. My buddies Nirvana and Shakira are coming along for the ride.

Bill Clinton

President night at Cedar Lodge. Hunter pulled of Bill Clinton but the accent could use a little work. Hunter's favorite fact was that Bill likes fast food. He's also up to date on the whole Monica situation.

The evening was incredibly fascinating. So many presidents I knew nothing about. McKinley was the biggest surprise for me.

Silly bands

Oh silly bandz..... Oh silly bands.... How I despise you silly bands. Consuming my life. Oh the conversations I've had with my children about the economics surrounding you or how so and so has the Halloween glow-in-the-dark 24 pack. I now use you as bribes and incentives. I know.. I know... I'm such a bad mom for not hunting down the desired silly bandz pack of the week. The one glimmer of hope is that in 20 years my children will be having a generational conversation with others of like age and they will reminisce over the perfect silly bandz trade they made in 4th grade. The black penguin for the purple pixie. A perfect score. So, I've heard.
