Nick and I planned a trip with both our parents and our boys to Hawaii a while back. We went last week and just got back (which was way too quick!) I was planning to blog while I was there but with all of the customer service I was also doing with the foundation, if I would have blogged also, I pretty much would have missed out on the whole vacation!
As a blogger, a business owner and a full time parent it’s sometimes hard to know how to balance it all. I’m constantly trying to figure it out!
Here are some of the highlights of the trip.
I’m wondering if we’ll ever get a photo with all 4 of us looking at the camera. Maybe when they’re teenagers:) In the meantime this is more realistic anyway…
Nick is ALWAYS much better at getting photos than I am. Always capturing the moment so I can just relax and enjoy it. He’s the best dad.
With Christian I gained 50 lbs and lost it super fast. With Billy I gained 40 and it’s coming off quite a bit slower. Having all those changes to my body that babies create takes time to get used to but for me having a good suit makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE! This one I talked about last week is so comfortable and flattering, it completely blew my expectations out of the water!
This was my favorite coverup. It felt so beachy, flowy and cute!
Mornings with these brothers and the sound of the ocean might have been the very best part.
OK I know he’s got some major snot in this photo but I had to show you his teething necklace. Sydney told me about the amber beads that help with the pain and drooling from cutting teeth. I thought it sounding a little crazy but she said it was working so I got one. I noticed right off the bat that he was drooling and fussing less but I kinda just thought, oh maybe he’s just over that phase for the time being. Except when I took it off and forgot to put it back on a few days later the drooling came right back! Call me a believer.
Christian had THE BEST time. He loves being with his grandparents because they are all so sweet to him and in a random turn of events one of our favorite couple friends was there with their kids in the exact same place at the same time we were so he even had some friends to play with as well. He was in heaven.
I was super nervous for the flight with the boys and I imagined everyone who saw us coming in would be praying we weren’t sitting next to them. I can’t tell you how impressed I was with the kind people sitting all around us though, so many people smiled warmly, talked to and played with the kids and offered to help if we needed it. Not one person acted at all irritated even when Billy had a few crying spells. It made such a huge difference for us and I couldn’t have been more grateful!
I hope you guys had a good weekend, I’ve got some really fun stuff to show you this week!
