Sand Between Her Toes

I thought I was gonna have to build an arc over the weekend because of all the rain, but it is with great pleasure that I announce that Hawaii is, once again, Hawaii.

It's still not hot, although I think I felt a little glimpse, a little reminder here and there, that soon it'll be hot. Really hot. Like so hot you can't stop sweating after a cold shower hot... So hot you're covered in salt after any workout... so hot that the ocean is hardly even refreshing... so hot that you burn your feet walking on the pavement... ahhh. I can't wait.

Hey Moana! Wanna go beach?

I'll take that as a yes. We headed off to Kailua today to gather our recommended daily dose of vitamin D.

We met a couple other moms there with their little ones. How fun is it to grow up here? These two year olds were having a blast with their buckets and shovels in the sand... and of course using the tree as a jungle gym!

Moana is of course too little for that yet... but the sand between her toes was a new and interesting feeling!

My husband showed up during his lunch hour. I was happy to see him.

And he was happy to see Moana... Clearly a lunchbreak like this helps a dad get over The Case Of The Mondays.

You do not even want to know how jealous I am right now!! Winter be gone!! :o) Looks like a fun day - Moana is a natural beach baby!

Wow, it is so beautiful there! I love that you can actually catch Moana smiling for the camera. Nathan whips out his "o" face whenever I take a picture of him!

Moana is just getting cuter every time you post a new picture! And how lucky is it that daddy gets to play too! I love Tim's new 5am-2pm shift because he gets to do so much more with the boys and family time is no longer only a 30 minute window before bed...it's great!

Seriously, it is just not fair that you get to live in conditions like that. That's amazing that a lunch break with your husband gets to be on the beach.

Wow, how lucky are you guys? Seriously...

Such a lovely family :)

Such an idyllic setting and lifestyle :) Tom & I have often considered living abroad, what do you think? Has Hawaii got space for a photographer and a motivational speaker/lecturer??? We can dream anyway:)

It looks like you had a wonderful day. And how cool that your husband gets to visit you at the beach for lunch.

Urgh! We had a first winter feel day here in ages and it sucked. Nice that you are going into summer, but I am going to be very jealous when you post about how nice your weather is.
