Want to see what we've been up to?

Too many photos, but I couldn't leave a single one out.  This has been a great month.  It's a beautiful, full life!  Even the moments where too many people whined, or fought, or cried, or yelled, or didn't try to understand each other... it's all a part of our story.  Oh and these are all out of order- how fitting.  

16 weeks

Date night with Thomas to Liliha Bakery in town and then This American Life at Dole Cannery theaters!  One of the greatest nights on record.  Love you Thomas!

We met Aunty Sheila, Makana, Aunty Liko, and Aunty Chante for lunch after May Day!

Ambrose can ride his bike without training wheels now!

On Mothers Day Ambrose got mad at his mom and dad and so he made this sign and posted it! "No dads in my rum (room) and mom can not gin (go in)"- HA!  The two grumps at the bottom of the picture are Thomas and I... of course.

Date night to Kincaid's Fish, Chop & Steak House.  YUM!

18 weeks in the cute bathroom at Hawaiian Brian's before the UY Farewell show.

UY played their final show.  It was bittersweet.  The place was packed with loving friends and fans.  I will have better images soon!

We love Aligator Pond with friends!

Our family got a little grill off Craigslist and has been slightly obsessed with grilling everything in sight ever since.  It's been a tasty, smoky couple of weeks.

This was a particularly fun morning with one of our favorite families to hang-out with: The Bradshaws!  I find excuses to hang around them and observe life with four kids- three of which are boys.  I am taking notes!  So is Asher by the looks of this photo.

You know it's summer if our yard is littered with all manner of kiddie pool/water slide creations.

Ambrose and I used our Kama'aina passes to get into the night show this week for a date.  We even ate a pineapple delight!  I like to spoil my kids in little ways.  

This was taken right before Asher's ENT appointment.  We found the most sugary pastry at Whole Foods and he ate it.  Atta boy.

These are my awesome students demonstrating forced equality from Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron

A fun day with Sheila, Echo, and kids at Koolina to check out the new Disney resort!

A couple of weeks ago Ambrose's preschool went to the Sesame Street exhibit at Bishop Museum.  Grandma and Grandpa Robertson came too!

These kids.  I tell you what.  So proud of their cushion mountain.

First time we used our precious little grill.  Success!

My creative homies at Pinterest Night!  We are for sure doing this again!

We had the UY families over for Sunday dinner.  The kids got all riled up and kept putting ridiculous shows on for us that had Kristen dizzy and everyone else in tears we were laughing so hard!

It's not FHE unless someone cries, but here's the happy highlights!

Here's another fun day from this semester: discussing imagery in Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory.

My three babies in one picture.

My pal Jackie throws the most amazing parties.  This one was a pirate theme (duh) where they built a life-sized ship for the kids!

We have another fun friend named Cassie at Turtle Bay who invites us to swim in the pool by her condo.  She has the best life ever.  We like to go over there and be a part of it all.

Speaking of Turtle Bay- the band wives got to spend a weekend relaxing there thanks to Adam and Kristen and their awesome discount.  It was the greatest pre-Mother's Day celebration.

Echo and I even got to sneak over to Teds Bakery for breakfast while everyone else slept in. 
Ok, I guess that's it for now.  Have a great weekend everyone!

I don't blame you for taking notes hanging out with the Bradshaws. They have one amazing Mama Emily! I would be doing the exact same thing!

Looks like a fun, full, and happy life! As a side note, we have the same kiddie pool and it is pretty much Clara's favorite thing ever.

Is it not true that you know what your baby is? Maybe I'm mistaken. I think I'm the only one, but I'm really hoping for a boy! You make such handsome ones! Of course a girl would be exciting and new. If you do know please share because I am perishing!
