Its been forever since I Posted last and time has flown by......

here is an update of whats been happening in our world since Christmas.....

Noah and Sawyer played in a basketball leauge. They enjoyed that. There were only two teams and they were each on different teams so each Saturday they got to play each other. It was fun...... most of the time.... haha

Then in late January we made our annual Trek to Hawaii with the exchange are some pictures from that. We took Noah and Sawyer with us again this year. Next year will be Taylors Senior Year so she chose to go next year instead of this year.

This year we had such a fantastic group of kids! Of the 12 or 15 or so times I have done this trip, I think I might have to say this was the best group ever!
We had soooo much fun!!

on the Catamaran

Nap time in the sun...(with the son)

Noah has become an expert at blowing the konch shell

The whole group...minus the chaperones
we dont like swimsuit photos so much anymore HAHA

We went to North Shore and the town of Haleiwa
(one of my favorite places on earth)
This picture of Noah was taken on Turtle beach

A trip to the North Shore would not be complete without a stop at Matsumoto's for their famos shaved ice

We stopped at Waimea to see the Waves...they were pretty big that day so that was a cool thing to see
Sawyer went for a little ride of his own
We made a stop at "sacrafice hill"
( at least that is what we call it)
for wonderful sunset pictures over Waimea bay.
Sunsets on the North Shore never disappoint.

Another day we visited the cultureal center
This is Sawyer learning alittle Hula
We played some games when we visited the New Zealand village

Well watching the Samoa show, Sawyer was called up again this year to drink the coconut juice.
He was such a ham...last year was much funnier though when he was a coconut juice virgin.

The group again..
The last day is the day we save for a rousing game of kissing rugby!

At the end they just could not stop themselves from piling on!

Love this picture below

The end....
