The Big Island – Hawaii 2016

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…

For anyone headed to the big island, this was our favorite restaurant:

A bonus weekend at the lake

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!

Challah Making in JK

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!

Happy 5th Birthday, Joey!

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!

Sleepover at Aunt Cari’s

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.
