Another birthday, another forgetful sibling...

We won't mention which sibling forgot to call me on my 29th...
But here's a hint:
It begins with a "C" and ends with a "larence".

Since I had to work on my birthday we saved our "festivities" for Saturday and hit up Coldstone Creamery. If you haven't signed up for the birthday club or whatever it is, you should. You get a free "Like It" size ice cream with one mix in. We used the coupon to get Ashlyn her own ice cream and she picked the "pink ice cream" with M&M's mixed in.
Heather and I had a buy one get one free coupon for a "Love it" creation and we even splurged a little and got the waffle bowls. Yummy. Heather chowing the Cookie Mintster.
And here's Ashlyn and I enjoying an afternoon together as a family. I got the Strawberry Blonde for the record.

But of course our family isn't complete with out our little monkey boy. Jax got treated to a nice cup of luke warm water. Lucky boy. Maybe his luck will be better next year.

It's Back!

We FINALLY got our camera back....just in time for Mom's visit. We sent it in a while back, and had it back for maybe 2 days before it crapped out again. So we sent it in again, and got it back about a week ago. It was working fine, and I was able to get some amazing pictures and video, but then it decided to not be waterproof yet again. So, I sent it in a third time, and Olympus said they would send me a new camera! So, once again we are camera-less. When we get the new one, hopefully this time it will last longer. Time will tell.

Anyway, we have been having a blast having Mom around. The weather has been perfect, and so has the water. Here is Ash and Grandma enjoying a little R&R at Kaimana Beach.

Ashlyn and Jaxon going down a water slide. Do you know any other 7-month-olds that can swim? I don't. Just kidding! Jason just sat them there for a quick pic.
Whoa! Jax looks extra chunky!

Snorkelling at Shark's cove

Of all the times I have snorkeled there, I have never seen a turtle. This time we saw 4!


The beginning of the video is of a baby. There were two swimming around with a bigger one that you will see towards the end. I seriously could have stayed out there with those things all day. They were so beautiful!

Just Because....

The poop was getting old and nasty to look at....

Ashlyn definitely endorses Nacho Cheesier Doritos.
