We took a trip to Oahu last week. Jake loved the sun, beach, pool, everything about it...Sam took a little more time to warm up to the sun. I wonder sometimes if he's really mine. How does he not worship the sun??? We invited my brother Ty and his wife Mel to come along and we had a blast. It was so much fun to get away and to have some help with the kids. Mel and Ty are due to have their first baby in October and I hope we make this a tradition to pack up the kids and head to Hawaii every few years! Mike and I tried to find rooms to stay an extra week, but it didn't happen. We all didn't want to come home, it was wonderful! Here are a few pics to remember the trip by.

Ty and Mel tended the kids one morning so we could go golfing. This is just one of the beautiful shots we got from the course. It was so nice to be able to get away for a bit.

It was tons and fun. I had never been to Oahu before and I think it just might be my new favorite Hawaiian destination!
