Mahalo Kurt, Mahalo.

Remember a few posts back when I said Kurt was the best? Well, he really outdid himself by letting me go to Hawaii for a week with two of my best friends. Jana, Rischel and I met ten years ago at BYU Hawaii where we lived in the dorms together. We all ended up finishing school there at different times and although we live in different places, we have stayed close and love to get together when we can. So, the perfect reunion came together. Jana and Rischel were talking and discovered they were both planning on going to Hawaii this fall and then they called me to see if I could go too. They were both going with their hubbys and Jana and Wes with baby Jay. Kurt and I talked it over for about a week and he ended up saying, "You should go for sure, but I don't need to go."Based on his work and the financial aspect and his prediction that I would spend six days sitting on the beach reading celeb magazines and chatting, he decided to skip it. I felt better knowing that Kurt was with Felicity every evening and over the weekend. I am so lucky to have such a good husband who lets me "spread my wings" as President Hinckley would say. Thank you Kurty J.

We had so much fun catching up and laughing, EATING and reminiscing. The weather was awesome, the company amazing and the vacation once in a lifetime. Thank you to everyone that watched Felicity while I was gone. Thank you Hawaii for being awesome. I love you and miss you already.

Standing in front of our dorm. Hall-eh two baby.

A honu like this ran into me while I was swimming. The water was murky and shallow and I was a little freaked out. I was trying to leave this guy alone and avoid the $10,000 fine, but I was literally laying on top of him trying to get away.

Awkward pose, I know. Awesome weather and glassy clear water at Waimea. So, beautiful.

Cute Jana and baby Jay. He was a good baby and a good traveling buddy.

A Little scary looking I know..

Jana's darling baby Jay.

We stayed the first two nights at the beautiful Turtle Bay Hotel. It was Suh-weet. Then we stayed in an awesome condo for the next four nights. Thanks to Bitsy for the sweet hook up!

Isn't this the cutest picture?

Outside of the Grass Skirt Grill, our favorite place for yummy fish, rice and salad.

Chattin up the girls while the boys found some surf on the south shore.

Isn't this cute? All the boys-watching the waves.
Ok, so I didn't do four posts, but I did two. I am kind of proud of myself. I hope the five of you that read my blog are proud too!

Hee Haw Farms

Thanks for the fun afternoon Christie and Addie!
Cute, right?

The big slide! Super fun.

Getting ready to slide.

Waiting for the hayride wagon.

When we got home Felicity had tons of corn in her boots and she said, "Mom, we forgot to feed this to the ducks! She made me put it in a baggie and save it.

Yee Haw we went to Hee Haw. We took the girls for a fun afternoon of stepping in pig poop, getting head butted by a goat with horns (poor Addie). Playing in corn-weird, but fun for Felicity. We had popcorn and a hay ride and picked out pumpkins and it was all kinds of good fall fun . I do love this time of year. So far I have enjoyed: Pumpkin Jamba Juice (twice), Pumpkin empanadas, pumpkin pie, pumpkin chili, pumpkin crumble dessert, pumpkin pancakes and my favorite-a pumpkin oreo shake. So good!

It is my goal to post four new entries on this blog before next Monday morning. Not including this one. This one is decidedly lame. Wish me luck. I am way behind.
