Aloha from Hawaii!

Sadly we didn't really hop a plane to Hawaii we just brought Hawaii to our home!

Last week one of the summer jar activities drawn was: Plan an imaginary trip around the world, where would you want to go?

Caleb immediately shouted Hawaii and off we went. In the morning the boys colored palm trees and Tiki masks for decorations.

Which turned out fabulous!

We feasted on our very own roasted pig
(shhhh don't tell them its really chicken)
As well as sticky rice and unlimited Pina Colada's.
The boys rarely eat as well as they did this night. They loved it!

After dinner we looked at pictures of my trip to Hawaii with my Mom and Dad 10 years ago. Then thanks to you tube we watched hula and fire dancing.

They thought it was fascinating and I have noticed a few of the male hula moves sneaking into Caleb dancing.

It was a perfect summer day!

Having the jar has been such a good thing for us this summer. We are actually doing something fun and interesting each day instead of just having good intentions that immediately get lost in the day to day.

VERY COOL! I can't wait for my boys to get older, so we can start some of these fun family activities and traditions! Thanks for being such a great example of what a great mother should be! Love you!
