Warning Number 1: Lots and lots of pictures are to follow this announcment.
Warning Number 2: That is not a beached blue whale it is just Big Momma so don't worry.
Seriously no more than ten minutes after landing this happened. Do you think he could be anymore at home?
This magical little Ipod was what saved us on the plane ride and at night when Michael and I weren't ready for bed. Oh thank heaven for Barney and Yo Gabba Gabba!
Just lovin' Daddy and Waikiki. Our evening destination.
"Ba bye Daddy!" Michael got some serious and much needed surf.
Little guy was too cold to go into to the deep alone. He was so timid about the waves when they were non-existent and then would charge them when they were crashing?! Crazy little dude.
One of our few family photos thanks to the kind British girl on the beach. Can you tell which way the sun is shining? A little bit squinty? :)
This is Jack's new facial response to "smile." Of course we think it is the funniest, cutest thing ever but to the outsider it is probably just ugly.
Here is another family photo. Fat neck included for your viewing pleasure.
In order to keep this a fairly positive blog post I won't directly comment on this photo. Let me just remind you that you asked for it.
Total cheese and bologna with his "juice." Who knew that a water bottle with a pop top could make all the difference in convincing a kid that it's not actually water, it's "juice?" Genius.
Just kickin' it.
Once again my little Ham with his gnarly teefs. Can anyone say braces?! :)
This is of course a picture of Josie, her companion and I. I really didn't mean to see her since it's against the rules but we randomly saw her on the street in Laie when we went to pick up Michael's brother. It was the perfect accident and Jack was all shy and excited like she was the love of his life. Good times.
This was such an amazing trip and we are transitioning back home pretty well. Jack woke up Sunday morning after getting home and the first thing he asked for was the beach. What a doll face. I am so glad that we all got what we needed. Michael surfed his brains out, I finally got a tan and Jack got some special alone time with Mommy and Daddy. Priceless.
