Maui, Day 4

The rehearsal dinner was fun and the location was even better. This is also the place they're getting married tonight. We just walked around and enjoyed the views, ate delicious food and enjoyed good company. Ryan and I just got back from a walk along the ocean and had a yummy breakfast. Pancakes with Macadamia nuts! Ummmm.....We're hanging out by the pool today and then we will get ready for the wedding. Here are the views from the wedding location, Ryan and I and the boys from Hermosa!

Maui, Day 3

We went to the luau last night and the setting was unreal. It was good food, good company and a lot to look at. The sunset was beautiful so we took a lot of pictures! Here are a few. We spent all day today by the pool relaxing and enjoying all the people here for the wedding. Ryan loves the water slides at the hotel so I don't see much of him but I am hanging with the girls and getting some much needed relaxation. We are off to the rehearsal dinner which is taking place at Randy Travis' house. In case you don't know who that is...he's a country music singer. Ryan went with the groom there today to help set up a little and he said it was unbelievable. I will take pictures and post them tomorrow. Tomorrow is our last full day here :(, but also excited to see Jeremy and Amelia!

Maui, Day 2

Another day in paradise! We went to the most delicious BBQ at the groom's mom's house las night and it was unreal. We had seared tuna and marlin which they caught the day before. Homemade pesto pasta, cheesecake, blueberry pie....SO GOOD! We woke up this morning, went the the gym and made our way to Black Rock to hang out on the beach and snorkle. The ocean is so blue here and the flowers smell overwhelms you everywhere you go. We have a luau tonight so I'm sure we will have some good pics. Here are some pics from last night and today!

Maui, Hawaii Day 1

I am writing this blog from our hotel room, sitting in a nice bath robe, drinking a coffee after a nice LONG hot shower. Can't remember the last time I took a long shower. Anyway, we're having a blast so far. We got in yesterday afternoon and quickly settled in to the island lifestyle. We had a late lunch, pina coladas and finally made our way back to our room. It was all great until we realized that I grabbed the wrong bag at the airport and Ryan was without all his clothes! Oops. So we drove back to airport, got the right bag and headed back to the hotel. Did I say oops yet?!?! :) When we got back, we met up with some friends for drinks and watched the sunset. It was amazing! We went with our friends Mike and Christy to dinner and called it a night. We spent today by the pool, drinking and relaxing with our friends, including the bride and groom! We have a Hawaiin BBQ tonight at the groom's mom's house which should be fun since he grew up here and there will be plenty of locals. Here are some of the lai I got when we got here, one of the view from our room and from dinner last night!!!! I will update again soon!

Daily Routine

It could melt your heart. Watch Jeremy's morning routine of greeting his sister. If you can't hear it, he says, "hi angel" in his highest voice possible! Too cute!!!!

Jeremy is peeing on the potty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

August 10, 2008 - Jeremy says to me, "momma, I have to pee on the potty". I jumped up and ran him to the toilet, ripped off his diaper and sat him on the toilet. Not sure what to do about the standing thing because it doesn't reach the toilet yet. So sitting it is for the moment. He sat there for a minute and then said, "I'm all done". NOTHING! Ugh! I wasn't going to attempt potty training yet but since he brought it up, why not right? He did this to me the rest of the week and every time, I dropped EVERYTHING and ran him to the toilet. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING! Then, August 18, 2008....HE DID IT! I thought it was another false alarm but he actually went pee! It was as if he had won a gold medal! He got 2 M&M's and has done it 4 more times. He even went in a public bathroom today and then when we got home. Now, if I could only get him to poop! Here is a picture with my phone camera since I was caught off guard!

Mommy is working out again!!!!

Finally....I went on a hard hike today with my dad and Ryan. My dad's finger is in the way but you get the idea! The second one is of Ryan on a rock with a very high drop off behind it! Yikes.

Such a big brother....poor little Amelia!

I was in the kitchen and Jeremy came to get me. He told me to come and look at his sister...I was a little scared at first but realized it was his fake spider!
