A Long time ago and far away...
We traveled to visit the island of...

We drove the "Road to Hana" seabring style in hopes to find the black sand beaches!

Find them, we did!

And Swim, we did!

The "Feast at LeLe" Luau in Lahaina was a first (Umm, Amazing)...
As was the Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm!
Pincushion Protea growing in the mountains of Ali'i Kula! This was the flower that made up my wedding boquet! My absolute favorite!! Right Tom?!

The road less traveled on the south side of the isle questioned some of the passengers!(Not me though, I was all for it!)

Mount Haleakala up in the clouds, Yes totally UP IN THE clouds!

Once again, I wasn't too worried about the "walk slowly at this elevation" signs)

Nakalele Blow Hole! If you look close you can see Tom to the left!

Now, we have been for almost 2 months from this vacation but seriously folks seeing this photo makes me want to go back right...about...NOW!
Oh I mean this photo!! Ha! The other one too!

Trip to Huron
aka Coulter's paradise

We visited some friend last weekend in Huron, SD. We had a wonderful time filling the 20 hours we were there, and that included a full nights sleep! We packed in the fun, especially for Coulter (while Coy napped)!

So as you may know, Coulter has pretty bad legs. As in, he's got eczema to the worst degree-- from my stand point! We do things a little differently with him to keep it "under control". Ya know, like the scent free laundry soap, no soap in the bath (except for his hair at times), and special lotions for his flare-ups-- just to name a few! If they hurt him pretty bad he'll ask, "lotion on?", "kiss mommy?" or something else to soothe the pain.

Well, as I was loading the kids up to head to SF for the morning, Coy and I were outside and noticed a bug. A green bug that looked like a leaf. Pretty unique. I yelled inside for Coulter to come and see! He loves bugs! Loves them to the point of giving them a kiss. Seriously. He'll bend down to the ground and plant a big wet one on them. Whatever. Fine with me.

Coy and I noticed that it must have been hurt because it really didn't move fast. Fast enough. Coy for sure wanted to get his hands on it--ya know probably to see what it tasted like. I moved it away from Coy, showed Coulter and we all went back into the house to get things ready to go. 5 minutes later I am putting Coy in his car seat and Coulter asks, "Bug go?" I told him he hopped away. Coulter says, "No mommy, bug!" Coulter obviously spotted it out in the driveway. His eyesight is amazing but that is another story. "Oh yup, there's the bug! Good eye buddy!" I tell him. As I now buckle up Coulter I tell him, "That bug didn't move very fast, I think he hurt his legs." Coulter asks, "Mommy, bug lotion on?"

Oh my dear sweet Coulter!
