If you haven't been to Wack*y Tack*y and you have rambunctious kiddos and you want to play must go! We had a fabulous time with our friends and the structure was big enough that moms and dads could climb, slide and play without too many problems (even bigger moms and dads).

Fingers crossed he'll stay there!

New night lights.

Wednesdays are a great day to have off. In our house, they start pretty early when Timi leaves for work. Kainoa and I take our time getting ready, unlike "work days" when we have to rush. it started especially early. So, we headed out for a morning treat.

Next, we're going to make a special treat of applesauce for a sweet friend that's just starting to eat solid food.

I prefer the efficient apple peeler to make peeling and coring a bunch of apples easier.

Then, we're off to meet that sweet friend and her mama for a playdate at the zoo. Kainoa is especially excited to show her the tiger brothers and the lemurs.

Happy Wednesday to you! I know we'll have one.

Winter Fun

Have you ever seen your child having so much fun it brings tears to your eyes? Well, happened to me. He had so much fun sledding and saying "let's do it again" at least a million times! The joy was pure and glorious.
We started with the idea of a quick family trip to play in the snow....but the closest snow that was deep or fresh enough to play in ended up being about 1 1/2 hrs away. We got everyone dressed and ready to play and I whipped out my camera only to discover that I left the memory card at home. I was quite frustrated with myself! We decided to get back in the car and drive the next 20 minutes to buy a new card. It turned out to be a fantastic decision. We ended up going into S. Lake T.ahoe and having a blast.

We took the gondola up to ski res0rt.

Kainoa had the MOST fun sledding over and over and over.

The best ending to the day was that the trip home was smooth sailing the whole way...not a bit of traffic and Kainoa got in a pretty good almost 2 hr nap.

Happy Anniversary.... us! Six years ago today we were on Maui...hoping it wouldn't rain...getting married. It didn't rain (much) but it was a fabulous day. We were surrounded by family members and friends....and wouldn't have had it any other way.
