:: Hawaii - O'ahu - Part 1 ::

:: Here is a brief overview of our trip to Hawaii. We have so many pictures it's unbelievable. So here is just a little bit of what we did and where we spent a huge portion of October this year ::

:: We hung out here for two days, this is where JJ learned to swim without water wings. It's called Ko 'Olina and we came here for a three night stay on our honey moon. It was quite surreal to be there with our boys - Loved it! ::

:: Most days our boys were ready to have dinner by 5pm which meant we left the beach around 4pm as to avoid any meltdowns. Which meant that we missed one of the most beautiful times of the day; dusk. This day we stayed on through to 6pm. The boys had been given some surf boards from people that were leaving the island, within two hours each boy had been given their own board, by two different families....can you say blessed!?!?! Those boards were worth $20 a piece! It was so fun to have them for the few days we did! ::

:: Here are the photos Mr. L took while the boys were enjoying the surf on Waikiki beach ::

:: Cole holding up Diamond head on his board, this wasn't planned but Mr. L was fast at the draw with the camera! ::

:: We hit up the Army Museum @ Fort DeRussy - which the boys just got a kick out of! ::

:: Here is what our set up looked like every day we walked to the beach...we had quite the system for the poor little jogging stroller, it's supposed to be for just one babe, but we did fine fitting both of them into it ;) - plus the camera bag, cooler & beach bag on the back. I carried the floaties and surf boards ::

:: Lilly pads in the Hilton ponds ::

:: Since the boys needed to be home, bathed, fed and bedded before we were ready to settle in we sat on the lanai and watched the sun go down - this was our view from the Ilikai on the 20th floor ::

:: I'll be back with more photos, but really they are just repeats of the above photos, so just bear with me ;) ::

:: Happy Saturday Y'all - I'm off to make pavlova and get ready for an Indian feast tonight! ::
