And Mom W., today you will be glad to know that Nick installed 7, count them, 7 smoke alarms all over the house! I think we're covered! I had to mention that just for you! Now you may sleep easy! It's late, I'm tired......out.

Wyatt & Addison
We tried to take a cute pic with their heads together, but everyone was sleepy and all Wyatt wanted to do was rub Addison's head!

I am having issues downloading my favorite picture of a heart shaped rock. For some reason it keeps rotating to the right, and it just won't behave. Once I get it figured out, I will post it!

A few of my friends and I went to the zoo with our kids this morning down in Honolulu. It was a hot and sunny day...but we all had a blast!
Then it was on to the alligators...and I was able to snap a shot of two very curious creatures behind some bamboo railings...
(Trevor & Hudson)
Trevor has decided he knows how to read, and there was this big plastic cow there that looked like it was used to demonstrate how to milk a cow...only this one was missing some important parts for that....anyways, here is a quick clip of Trevor telling me about the sign around the Cows neck:
Finally, we were back at the flamingos where we started our day. And it was time to head home!

Nick is rooming with a few boys in the hotel room and said he had a couple of good kids! I think that was one thing he was worried about, being stuck with some routy boys....but he lucked out and got some good ones!!!
They did a lot of sightseeing but not too many pictures, and he was not able to send me any via email, so we may have to wait until Wednesday to get them up here for you all to see. I'm anxious to see everything as well!
So Day 1 for us back on the home island was a day of 'trying' to clean up the house. Sunday night was a rat race trying to get everyone packed and to bed at a decent time...needless to say, McKenzie didn't get to bed until WELL after her usual bedtime...(sigh)
So yesterday afternoon, Trevor and Addison and I went to Alaina's house to bring her a flower cupcake bouquet....and take a dip in Andrew's new pool!
It was quite a pool! The boys had a GREAT time! Addi even dipped her toes in the water, which, by the way, was like a warm bath, since the sun had been so hot that day! WooHoooo!
She mostly enjoyed trying out Andrew's walker (which isn't being used much anymore since he's been walking!)
After a little while in the sun, Addison had drifted off to sleep for a quick nap on the way home, and we got home, had supper, and headed to bed.
Now, on to the bathroom! Mother's Day was very productive! Nick had previously sealed all the grout a few days before, so McKenzie took Addison off my hands, and Nick and I double teamed the paint job!

Today on our first day of the weekend, we started off by traveling up and over to Millilani to dig up some Traveler Palms we found on craigslist.com!
Yes, another great deal on craigslist.com
The guy had already started digging them up for us by the time we got there, so it only took a few minutes for Nick to finish up the digging and load them up in the truck!
As soon as we got home, we (meaning Nick, mostly) grabbed our shovels and started digging these new Traveler Palms some new homes. We thought they'd be great along the fence between our neighbor. His yard is too perfect, and we don't want to look at it anymore! (Just kidding... well, sort of!)
Then we had this tree shown below that has sprouted some offspring beside it, so I asked Nick if he would dig them up and spread them along the front side of the neighbors fence....
HERE IS BEFORE...
