365 | Project 2015 Week 8


February 15 - 21, 2015

Day 46 {2.15.2015 Beach} They could play all day in the sand. I wish our favorite beach was closer!

 Day 47 {2.16.2015 ZzzzzZzz} I just LOVE sleeping pictures of my babies! So my little man has a twin bed and you would think he would have lots of room since he is only 4, but nope not enough! He has all his babies sleeping with him too and has to line them up and they take up over half the bed! LOL!
heart em
  Day 48 {2.17.2015 Kinect}  He loves when he gets to play with the Kinect! I love it because he is so cute and great exercise! He has been playing hard all day, so he should pass out tonight!


Day 49 {2.18.2015 Waiting}  We look forward to Wednesday's so we can watch Skyler at Karate class... But we now have to wait outside.  We can watch through a small window but not the same.   Liam just wants to go inside and join his brother!


Day 50 {2.19.2015 Details} Bellybutton ... Before I know it Skyler's belly will lose all his baby features!

Day 51 {2.20.2015 Power Ranger} Power Ranger Protection is serious business!

Day 52 {2.21.2015 Fun Day} Sat came and went with a blink of an eye. We had another game and then a little late birthday party for her! Very special day for my baby girl!

Day 39 {2.8.2015 Beach}  Visiting the turtles one last time before my SIL left and I felt a little creative with my edit!  Turtle Bay is so beautiful!  This is the only way I could actually paint! LOL

Day 40 {2.9.2015 Early Riser} Even with staying up late last tonight to say goodbye to his Auntie, Liam is still an early riser. At least Chloe has someone to eat breakfast with.

Day 41 {2.10.2015 Twins} They are so twins! Yes, I dress them the same a lot but look their actions are the same too! Silly boys!

Day 43 {2.12.2015 Routine}  Right away after school she knows her drill.  Homework, Chores, Play!  Even though she doesn't need glasses she loves to wear them for pretend.


 Day 44 {2.13.2015 Monkey Boy} I couldn't help but laugh and sneak a few pictures in before he ran off. He has been messing with his diaper a lot lately, so maybe potty training is in the future!


Day 45 {2.14.2015 Cheer} Chloe and her dolly all ready for the big game! Love watching her cheer!

365 | Project 2015 Week 6



Such an amazing week we had!  My family enjoyed showing my SIL the Hawaii life!  We made the most out of the little time we had together.  Unfortunately the weather was very unpredictable, but we didn't let that rain on our parade.  Chloe and her Auntie went Parasailing on day, which I was too scared to bring my camera and it's a good thing since we got soaked on the boat, but seeing the excitement in their faces is forever imprinted in my head.  The other must do while my SIL was visiting was go on a Whale Watch boat ride.   After two cancelations we actually got our boat ride and let me tell you it was AMAZING!  I have been on this island for two years and finally saw a whale!  Our last full day was spent relaxing on our favorite beach! We were there for over five hours that is the longest we have ever stayed at the beach.  Our time together went by way too fast, like always, but it's easier to say goodbye when we know we will be on the Mainland again in less than 10 months.   There are many things we will greatly miss on this island!

Day 33 {2.2.2015 Bike} Skyler was so excited to show his auntie how he can ride his bike without training wheels!  We are so proud of him.  I think we will need to buy a kick stand soon!

Day 34 {2.3.2015 Weather} Rain... Rain... Didn't keep us away! It might have been raining outside, but we still had a blast exploring the island.

Day 35 {2.4.2015 Ride}  Faster Faster! Chloe, my husband and sister in law all left for a luau so I have some quiet time with my boys... Yay not very quiet, but they are having a blast

Day 36 {2.5.2015 Joy} Joys of a Hawaii Baby... Soaking up the rays!


Day 37 {2.6.2015 Whale}  Couldn't think of a better way to end the day than with a Catamaran Whale Watching ride! Towards the end of our two hour ride this beauty made an appearance! We were so excited! I have been in Hawaii for 2 years and finally saw a whale!!!

Day 38 {2.7.2015 Picture Time}  "Mommy can you stop right there and take a picture of me"  She is so adorable!  I love that she has such an interest in Photography as well!

Stories in Seven Blog Circle | February

February has arrived and that means time for another edition of Stories in Seven.  A week ago my husband's sister came to visit and it was her first visit to Hawaii.  We didn't have too much time to go swimming at the beach, so we made a quick trip to Turtle beach and to take a chance of seeing some sea turtle and soak up the beautiful view the beach has to offer.  We didn't see any turtles this time but the sound of the remarkable waves and the view made up for it.  Liam fell asleep about 5 minutes before our arrival and he was impossible to wait up, so daddy to the rescue and carried the 30lb sack of potatoes lol!  Once we made it down to the beach the kids did their thing.  Chloe loves climbing up on the rocks and towering over Mommy.  It really doesn't take much to be taller than me.  After a few minutes, Chloe made friends with a little girl from another country.  It was so cute, she can seriously make friends everywhere.  About 15 minutes into being at the beach a huge wave came and got Zack a little wet, along with Liam's leg and he finally woke up.  Baby boy was a little confused on where he was at first.  Must be weird falling asleep in a moving car only to be awaken on a beach with crashing waves.  Skyler now surprised us all.  He LOVED LOVED LOVED this beach! I have never seen him play with the waves with such excitement.  He would walk out when the ocean was pulling the water back out and run squealing with excitement each time a new wave came back.  Just like his older sister, Skyler made friends with two Japanese girls and it was so adorable seeing them play.  The language barrier wasn't holding them back! As you can see, we didn't plan for the excitement and play that this trip gave.  Skyler was literally soaked up to his neck when we were done and with no towels in the car he had to ride back in just his underwear. OOoops! We are always learning something new everyday right?  As you scroll through these images you will get a glimpse of our adventure and let the story unfold.

Baby Girl Turns 9!

My baby girl turn 9!  Yes, I called her a baby, she will always be my baby girl.  When she hears me call her that, I get the biggest smile on her face!  I cherish every moment with her because before I know it, I will be helping her pack her bags and sending her off to college.   I love capturing my kids right away when the clock strikes midnight and seeing her cuddle her "Chloe" mermaid made it so much more special not to mention soooo adorable!  The day of her birthday, the boys and I went to the grocery store to find her the perfect cake and SCORE!  Pink cake with a bow, I couldn't ask for a more fitting cake.  Liam on the other had a different idea, he took the cake while sitting in the cart and put it upside down. OOOPS!  Luckily, not too much damage was done.  The day was perfect and memories are instilled in our heads forever!

365 | Project 2015 Week 5


One month down already! Wow crazy how January just flew by.  We had a pretty relaxing week, gearing up for my sister-in-law's visit.  This is her very first time visiting us, so we greeted her with the Hawaiian Lei.  It's so beautiful and sad to see it wilt away :(  She was also so lucky to be able to attend Chloe's opening ceremony for Cheer/Basketball, along with her seeing her first game!  Chloe of course was amazing.  She is such a natural!
