April Fools Day

As spring break comes to a close this April weekend, we have to pause and reflect the weekend that has brought us so many wonderful memories and bread, as well as the low points of being sick and tired of being sick and tired.

This week was spring break at University so I got to stay home more and get more work done than usual. Having almost finished a big painting job I decided to take the girls over to kona. We stopped in Waimea for a doc appointment where Melia weighed in at 8-5 with a 2 inch growth in height. Happy at her progress we drove down into Kailua-kona for a treat. We went to the bike shop first where I picked up my broken frame that has been sitting alone for 4 months not getting fixed. Here is a picture of the parking lot.

Next we headed over to Ali'i drive where we stopped in at a cool childrens clothing store to find Potatoes a birthday present. we also stopped by the Walters shop to say hello and show them Melia. Afterwards we decided to go get some dinner at Outback Steakhouse. mmmmm... We both got the outback special (steak, side, salad) and diet coke. we watched the sun set out over the ocean, then treated ourselves to some dairy queen soft serve, and watched some beach volleyball. After dinner we headed over to Walters house to hang out for a while and pick up Melia's presents from Cheryl, Tiffany, and Devany.

We piled back into the car and drove home.

Friday we went into the Mall and walked around trying out the old Baby Bjorn. Melia slept in it against my chest and we walked around the mall while Robyn got her toes done at the nail place. We had a good time and finished off the night with a nice Pizza at Cafe Pesto.

Saturday I went on my bike ride later in the day and we got another movie at Blockbuster in the eve.

Sunday after watching some conference Melia fell asleep on my chest and then we caught her smiling a bit. we went on a nice sunday drive down to Kalapana. Our first stop was at mackenzie park.

There were all these Hippies there playing frisbee golf. Now the day is winding down and we are just sitting around the living room talking and hanging out, oh yea and Melia just pee'd all over Robyn !!!

Kai also found this plastic bag on the kitchen table and decided it would be a fun place to take a sunday nap.

Cute little Peanut. Sounds like you guys had a great Spring Break. Are you going to miss the island? Hmm...island or the brown that is Texas??? I still love the Lone Star state don't get me wrong but I'll take Hawaii's lush tropics anyday over Texas and it's flatness. But happy to have you closer to us.

I will totally miss this island but we are moving to the Hill Country so it is better than the flat part of Texas. This place is so beautiful but so isolated at the same time!!
