Children think they know.. but they have noooo idea!

Aaaaand I’m back!

After what seems like a bajillion years, I am finally back! I wish I could say that I have been out of the country traveling and seeing the sights, or feeding baby pandas, or surfing with dolphins or anything remotely exciting or exotic!

I have actually just been lazy 🙂
The weather has finally started to look like summer out here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and we have been enjoying it!
Instead of writing a post about each event or activity we have been getting ourselves into, I’ll share some brief deets here..

A girlfriend and I took the kids bowling! Watching 4 year olds try to roll the 7 pound ball down the lane is hilarious! Although it took the ball a good 2 minutes to get from Dylan’s hands to the pins, he had a great time! And his score was actually better than mine in the end, with bumpers!! Maybe I should take lessons from him..

I got some new ink! ”Amazing” to remind myself that I am amazing and strong and I can do whatever I put my mind to! It’s also a promise to myself to stay amazing!

Someone lost a tooth! Yes he is too young for his teeth to be coming out on their own.. there was an intense wrestling match between Dylan and his uncle, and uncle’s foot and Dylan’s mouth did not get along.

But the tooth fairy came! Shoes On the Wrong Feet gave me a great idea in one of her past posts about the ToothFairy, So I took that concept and made it my own! Dylan got a note from the ToothFairy and we discussed in great length about what the ToothFairy looks like (purple wings, green shoes, and a gold crown) and which cloud in the sky she lives on.

Dylan got a hair cut! And from the picture below.. you can tell it was much-needed!!

We spent a week at my grandparents house at Lake Chelan in Eastern Washington. Sun, pool, sun, hot tub, pool, sun, and smiles 🙂 Dylan ‘swam’ by himself! With the assistance of a life jacket, he wiggled his way back and forth across the pool yelling “Watch this!”

4th of July! We BBQ’d at a friend’s house. Lots of kids running up and down the street while the parents lined the sidewalks in their camping chairs. The firework show was fun! The guys all had a blast out doing each other’s fireworks!

My cousin got married! And I had the amazing honor to stand beside her at the altar as one of her bridesmaids! This particular cousin and I are only 2 months apart, and we have grown up together our entire life. It was so wonderful to be able to be a part of her special day!

Aloha from Kauai

First off, it’s coming up on 7:30am, i have my morning coffee and this is my view

20120518-072425.jpg
It’s a little foggy, but I see blue skies creeping in over the mountains. A few early birds are swimming laps in the pool before it becomes over run with kids splashing and adults drinking Mai Tais.
Speaking of birds, a rooster is crowing somewhere from the courtyard below me, birds are chirping away in the trees, the waves are rolling into the beach, and the palm tree branches are strumming along in the breeze. *sigh* the sounds of Kauai..

20120518-073038.jpg And there is my blue sky, welcoming me to my first full day in Kauai!

Now, time to wake up my sister and venture through the Koi pond courtyard, through the palm tree jungle, into the open air restaurant for our continental breakfast. And maybe a mimosa 🙂

For all you moms and dads out there.. This is my FIRST vacation away from Dylan! I feel 😦 but then get 🙂
He is back in Washington with my parents, probably loving all the attention and getting spoiled rotten.

Well I’m getting spoiled rotten too, Childless, in Kauai, with my sister.

Happy Friday and Aloha!!
