So I'm a little slow at getting these pictures from our trip to hawaii up... I love it when life gets so busy that you really feel like there are just not enough hours in a day. That's how things have been for us and I love it! I don't like having too much time on my hands...I'm much happier when I'm busy. But it was soo nice to just relax and slow down in Hawaii. My sweet boy did so good with grandma. Everytime I'd call to check on him I'd hear laughing in the background. It was so nice to know he was having so much fun. Thank you so much Grandma and Grandpa (and uncle stu, graf, and aunt julie!).

Hawaii was so beautiful...






We ate lots,




went to a magic show,



went zip lining (so fun)



and just spent lot of good, quality time together.




It was a perfect vacation...
Now it's been back to life for us. We move in 2 weeks and have been busy getting ready for that. It's so nice to get neat and organized. I love to get rid of things..it's a great feeling.
Benson is loving life and learning so much. He is still facinated by cars, trucks, and airplanes, balls, spiderman, and being outside. I don't know if he picked it up from Jordan (moats) or just learned on his own, but he answers 'yea' to everything you ask him. I love it. He's starting to talk lots...his newest words are cheese, show (for baby einstein), poop :), car, Jesus, more, help, chips, wow. He says so much. He loves to say prayers with us and folds his arms the whole time. He usually repeats the last word of every sentence, then yells Jesus at the end. There is nothing that makes me happier than spending time with him. And now that Tan is done with school (!!!!!!!!) we get to see lots more of DADA too! Life got a lot better for us on May 12th (graduation day).. Graduation was awesome, and it was nice for Tanner to get some well deserved recognition for all the hard work that went into working full time and getting his MBA at night. I am so proud..

Thanks for the update Ave, it looks like you guys had a blast in Hawaii. I would say Kuai, but then the entertainment would suggest maui or something. Looks like a ton of fun and so nice to have a vacation for just you two!

Give Benson a kiss for me! He's too cute!

Hi Avery, this is Kelly Dana's friend. I was looking at your blog and I love your Hawaii pics! I was wondering if the magic show you went to was Warren and Annabelle's on Maui? Some pics look like Maui, but I cant tell. Anyway, you have a very cute blog!
