Oh Baby....Oh Baby!!!
Wow! I can't really put into words the feeling of leaving cold,rainy,snowy Utah for the warm shores of Hawaii. What a trip! We flew out last week with my Dad, Megan and Chris to Oahu for a little vacation. I forgot how much I love that island. The ocean is just so beautiful and blue and although I have a good healthy fear of it, I also love when it picks me up and slams me down into the sand to take me for a ride! I love to play in the waves!
We did a lot of snorkeling and bogey boarding. Joe took a surfing lesson and we went on a sail boat ride. I saw a shark swimming near our boat. Not a little shark... no..no.. the kind of encounter that Emily Anderson would have had to be revived after her heart stopped kind of encounter! We saw whales and turtles,octopus and lots and lots of beautiful fish.
I am posting a few pictures and I am being very(underline very) brave by posting a couple of me in my swimming suit. I know not very many people even know about this blog, so if you are looking then you should already love me anyway!
I wish you all could have been there! I have to say a huge thank you to our Moms who took care of the kids and on top of that cleaned my house and washed and folded all the clothes! No one, and I mean no one, is as lucky as I am in the Mom and Mother in law department..
I will be dreaming of you North Shore, until we meet again.....
