in paradise...

For Spring Break this year we are in Hawaii with Brian, Kimber & Ryan, baby Van, Lindsay and her fiance, Darren. Taylor will join us for a few days later this week. We are staying at the Waiohai on the island of Kauai, one of our favorite places.
We had a great time on Saturday swimming at Luma Hai and Queens Bath even though the North Shore is really crazy this time of year. The waves were spectacular and the kids had a fun time getting tossed in them.
I enjoyed watching them get tossed.





We went to one of our favorite beaches and baby Van had a great time tasting the sand. He would scoop it out of his beach pail then stick it in his mouth... it was everywhere but he was happy!








On Saturday morning we still had our tutor session and it was great. What a great place to have a tutor session! Robert and I really enjoy our sessions because we learn so much and we have an opportunity to share ideas and thoughts regarding principles of the gospel.

A Wonderful Weekend!

This past weekend, Robert and I, Richard & Nickie, Larry and Brian drove up to Utah to attend the sealing of our oldest daughter, Kelli, and her husband, Adam, in the Timpanogos Temple.  We stopped along the way in Aurora to get my mom, who came with us, too.  There were lots of family members there and dear friends… Steve & Kathy Thurgood… and we so appreciated everyone being there.  It made it that much more special.  Afterwards, we celebrated at their church building with a yummy soup and bread dinner where more friends and family joined us.  Our trip up and back was easy and quick.

We have also been in the process of finding new homes for our many animals.  On this trip we took our cat, Chloe, to my mom and my sister, Cindy, who will be caring for her while we are gone on our mission.  She will get lots of love and attention there and we feel so good about her new home!  We will miss you Chloe!
