I'm Back

We're back from Hawaii! Actually, we've been back since Tuesday, but I've been catching up on housework and loving on Caleb since we returned.

We had a good time; it was nice to spend some uninterrupted time together! It was cloudy 3 of the 5 days we were there and I was sick 2 days (including my birthday, Saturday), but we were still able to enjoy some of the sights. The food was amazing!! (Thanks, Betty, for your recommendations!) I wasn't prepared for the was actually chilly several days! I wished I had brought a jacket, especially when we went up to the canyon (about 4000 ft.). You just don't think you'll need one in Hawaii, but I guess it is December and all. We stayed on Kauai until Monday and then went to Oahu for the day. It was really warm and sunny there, so we headed to the beach for a couple of hours. I was able to get a little bit of a tan before I returned.

I missed Caleb like CRAZY!! It was harder for me in that respect since I see him all day, every day. He did great for my parents, though, and was hardly fussy at all. That was definitely an answer to our prayers. Caleb woke up this morning saying, "Poppa," so I'm not sure if he prefers us over them anyway. :-)

I'll post more details next week with some stories and pictures. We're giving my sister a baby shower tomorrow, so I'm off to bake some pumpkin bread, pack, and take care of last minute details (oh, and travel to my parent's house...Caleb will think he lives there before too long!).

Have a great weekend! Posted by Picasa

Sorry you were sick for part of the time. I should have warned you to bring a jacket, the wind was chilling even in July when we were there. Pictures look awesome. Have fun with your sister and tell her to update her blog!

glad you had a good's something kind of I noticed that you had commented on my blog and mentioned to my daughter that you must be back from your tropical vacation. I didn't know where that was going to be and wondered if it was FL which is where I happen to live...and she said....well, it's not like she would be going to Hawaii or anything :) It must have been wonderful....and I can't wait to tell my daughter where you went.
BTW Happy Birthday!

Beautiful pictures! Now I REALLY want to go there! :-)

I'm so sorry you were sick -- that stinks! I can empathize a little, though, because that's kind of how I felt when I got sick on our honeymoon in Florida. Can't we get sick when there's not a beautiful beach to visit nearby?

I love you, and I can't wait to hear your stories!

Always, Lisa
