Family Vacation

The past couple of weeks we've been to Hawaii.  We visited Kauai and the Big Island and were gone a little over 2 weeks.  There were many highlights, special moments, and fun times so it's hard to pick exactly what to write about.  In no particular order, here are some of them:

A few nights of 9+ hours of sleep (first time in over 5 years )
Watching the girls discover their love of the ocean and the beach
Watching the friendships develop between Big, Little and their 2 cousins
A break from work, from the everydayness of our routine and reading 5 books on my Kindle
Spending time with our little family and our extended family
A boat snorkel trip and my first time trying snub
Seeing the amazing confidence Big is developing in her swimming abilities
The beauty of the creation and miles of shoreline that we got to see on the islands

And, in no particular order, here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip.  It was hard to choose and I had to cut myself off because I know none likes to see vacation photos as much as we like to see our own!  Since I'm home, I'll be back to the blog with some new posts soon.
