I had a work trip to Hawaii to visit Pacific Quest so Greg and I took advantage of the opportunity and made it into a mini vacation!
We were on the big island the entire time and we’re able to cover pretty much everything the island had to offer.
It was pouring rain when we arrived…
Eating with the locals….
Greg enjoyed some super fresh sushi!
For anyone headed to the big island, this was our favorite restaurant:
The kids were well taken care of at home (thanks to Nanny/Poppy & Bubbie/Zeyde!)
Making pizza with Chef Pasta!
Yummy strawberry lemonade and poke
Checking out the rainforest
Snorkeling with the dolphins
The weather has been mild this September so we were able to sneak up to the lake for one last weekend! We took the kids to the local pumpkin patch and they had a great time!
It was a little chilly but we needed to get one more boat ride in.
Such a big girl!

We celebrated Goldie’s 1st birthday this past weekend and had a fabulous time! Big thank you to grandma and grandpa for hosting such a fabulous event!
Each family at Joey’s school participates in a “family share” once per year. The student is supposed to select what they want to share with their class…this could be anything from a Lego set to their favorite book/activity. Joey knew exactly what he wanted months in advance… Aunt Lori to come in and teach his classmates about challah making.
This is an activity he’s enjoyed weekly at his old school – and he’s certainly loves Aunt Lori’s homemade challah on Friday night. Due to all of the food restrictions (allergies), the kids werent able to taste any of it but they did have fun making it!
Thanks Aunt Lori!
The weather couldnt have been better for the first lake house weekend of the summer! The boys were anticipating the trip North all week and had a little countdown going.
Joey decided on a Ninjago-themed party. We had it at the same place he had it last year and he had a blast with all of his school friends and cousins!
Joey got glasses this month and is doing a fantastic job being responsible for remembering to wear them and keep track of them.
The boys had their very much anticipated sleepover at Aunt Cari’s. They made sure to do all of the forbidden things: stayed up too late, got presents, drank juice and ate on the couch.
As always, Goldie missed her brothers very much but enjoyed a lot of 1:1 time with us!

Best words to describe Goldie at 9 months: happy and thriving! She loves to eat, finds her brothers hilarious and always on the hunt for a gate left open or LEGOS to eat.
She got a great report from her 9 month appointment
17.75 head circumference (90%)
She’s crawling everywhere and has tried just about every food. She likes everything except Hummus.
Joey (a few months shy of age 5)
He loves Hot Wheels, LEGOS, his scooter and his iPad!
