Back from Vacation

I’m back, did you miss me?

We had a great time in Hawaii, although I think we would have all liked to stay longer.

The plane rides went pretty well.  Penny was the hardest. She didn’t like being forced to not walk up and down the aisles during take-off and landing, so she screamed.  The rest of the flight she stood in the aisle near me.  The bigger girls were great and well behaved with very little fighting.  Sammy did get airsick landing in Hawaii and hit Sean’s shirt. Not so much fun.  When she announced on the way to the hotel she never wanted to leave Hawaii, we thought it was so cute. Until we realized she just didn’t want to get on a plane again.

We are back safe and sound after spending a lot of time in the water and on the beach and visiting the zoo, aquarium, and Sea Life park (it’s like a mini Sea World).  We’re all pretty jet lagged, so I’m just going to show you all some pictures.  Oh, I learned to surf while there too, but that’s for another day.

    Yes, I missed you! Laila is very interested in the hula outfits. That’s her ballet recital costume.
    Can’t wait to hear about surfing.

    Some screaming and a little puke on the plane sound like a successful plane trip to me. (I would expect nothing less from my own three!) Glad you are back.
