This was our first summer in Hawaii and our first summer with all three boys. Craziness, but fun! We are so glad that Abram loves the water... we spend a lot of time at the beach and in pools. He is so happy when he is swimming.
Most of you know I am a list maker and keeper... it is a lot of work to pack up our family of five but oh my, the rewards are great. We are all happier when we are out and about and not stuck inside our house. I knew if I made a list of what I wanted to do this summer, I would try my hardest to get everything checked off. I hate to see unchecked boxes. This helped our summer to have a purpose and it reminded me what I wanted to do. We had a fun time checking things off! Even Chris got excited when a box was completed.
|We posted our list right in our kitchen so we could see it all the time!|
|Not on our list, but the water table provides tons of entertainment for Abram when we need to be at home. Its a fun activity when the babies are napping. This is one of my favorite pictures from the summer!|
There are so many places to hike in Hawaii and easy hikes for Abe, but not many are stroller friendly. Our first hike was up Makapuu. It was fun and a lot of hard work pushing that stroller up hill and even harder going down. Abe amazed us by doing the whole thing on his own. We need to wait until the boys are big enough to fit in a carrier to do more hikes as a family.
This summer the Bishop Museum had a special dinosaur exhibit. It is super cool. The dinosaurs are huge and so life like!
We had a great summer and now I need to make our fall checklist... it will be more of a challenge since we don't have fall weather.
