Waterpark Days

 We love our waterpark.  We try to go often, every other week at least.  It is "free" entertainment (once you have the pass :)  and always means a good time.  I'm getting better at taking the kids by myself.  Anjuli and Zion are old enough to run off together "stick together like glue" as I always tell them, and go on a few rides before checking back in. Then I just watch the other 3!

Friends from the ward: Bays and Waite's

This picture is a few months old, back when Ezekiel sucked his fingers.  He doesn't anymore

This is the ride Anjuli and Zion just love "Island Racers".  They go on it 10 times in a row and check in with me.  Since we go on a weekday morning there are never any lines.

When Jazzy's not at the waterpark she wishes she was :)

Ezekiel at 8 months

Ezekiel has conquered stairs, figured out toilets and TP, and loves to eat my flowers. He likes to wrestle at diaper time (aka he hates it!), bang on the piano, and loves to play chase. Two new teeth on top and he is still biting everything so he must have a few more coming in. The kids love dressing him up! He sure is lots of fun around here :)

Oobleck, the ultimate mess :)

 Good ol' cornstarch and water with food coloring.  The kids had an absolute ball and it entertained them for seriously 3 hours non stop.  But wow was such a mess to clean up after!  From now on Oobleck is done outside on the deck :)

Happy Chinese New Year!

Fun tradition, and a great time to break out the Chinese outfits from Linda. 

Jazzy was so cute banging on the drum

Time for Hong Bow's!

Happy Anniversary--8 years!

Hard to believe it's been 8 years already.  Feeling like life never happened before marriage!  Zui surprised me and came home early from work with a babysitter.  He had it all planned out, snorkel gear in the car.   We went to Electric Beach and had a great time swimming with the fish, although our pictures didn't capture it too well.  We heard a pod of dolphins had just passed through an hour before we got there!

This is me trying to use the underwater camera...but actually I like this shot :)
 I took a few days off from work around our anniversary.  It was so nice to go beach more often and let the kids play.  Zion is really so happy in the water.  He LOVES catching waves!

Two of my favorite boys :)  Do you like the shirt I got Zui for our AV?  It's like he doesn't even have to tell me he loves me anymore, I just read it!  haha

"Part of your world...."

The best shot we could get of our 5 kids

Makapu'u Lighthouse

Hiked Makapu'u with our friends the Altman's. They have been good friends.  We headed to the beach with them the next week.  It was fun seeing all the kids boogie board together.
