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... 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.....


  1. STEPH, you little brat, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous!!! How fun! You and Joe are so cute; even after all these years you guys still look so perfect together. And WHATEVER about being brave in a suit; I thought you were bragging. You look HOT! You are one hot Mama Stephy poo. Sharks near your boat? Snorkeling? Bogey boarding? Yeah, that definitely beats the carpooling and laundry folding I've been enjoying over here... Glad you had fun Steph! Now that's a Spring Break!

  2. GREAT PICTURES! Man wish you could have just tagged along with us to take pictures of us. I realize we have like ONE picture of the two of us together!
    That first one is awesomw Steph! And I agree with Mare...ya'll are HOtties! Megan if you read too girl!

    Well, back to real life again right?

  3. From the subject of this post I thought you had an exciting announcement for us! But no it's just boring old Hawaii! Glad you had fun. You and Joe so deserve it! After your and Angie's trips I have new motivation to save my pennies.

  4. Lucky Dogs! You look great....all of you. How fun! Can I tell you how excited I am that you are blogging! It is going to be so fun keeping up with your crazy self and your beautiful family. Loves ya....

  5. You already know my jealous feeling toward this lil trip of your and your awesome Mothers. So lets just skip to the hope you had a blast and you rock in those pictures. You motivate me to get my Milo weight off so I can rock it in my swimsuit and also to go tanning because I am one white mama. Love ya and keep it real and all that stuff

  6. Oh man, looking at this post makes me so excited!! Ray and I are going to Maui in Ocotober for our 10th anniversary!! I can't wait! Now I just have some serious baby weight to lose!! You are so silly, you look awesome (so does Megan, by the way!!). I'm glad you guys had such a great time!!

  7. I do love the texture in that top picture. Looks great! All I can say is that you guys are one lucky couple! A trip to Hawaii with the kids taken care of by the ones that love them. Sleeping in and playing in the ocean. Sounds like perfection to me!
    Thanks for playing with Sam today! Can't wait to see the results.

  8. You guys are all too cute! Love seeing you all laughing and having fun. I can close my eyes and pretend I'm there with you. Miss you all and love you more!
