Aloha!

Hello Blog World.  We are back from Hawaii and we had a wonderful time.  It is one of the prettiest places I have ever been.  I did not want to come home I could have spent the entire summer being a beach bum on the beautiful island of Oahu.  
Soccer news first, the games did not go as well as I would like to report a number of things contributed to the girls not doing as well as they we would have liked.  Including the heat and humidity.  Holy Cow it was humid I told Brent the driest I was for a week was when I was taking a shower.  I think it pretty much kicked the girls buts. There were other things that took place but over all the girls played hard, they played good, they supported each other, but it just didn't happen.  However, what it ultimately meant is we all had more beach time.  It was very sad and I can feel your sorrow for us. (*Note, I did not bribe Sam to loose, just in case you were thinking it.*)
We had all kinds of adventures including, circling the island no less then 4 times.  It is weird to be somewhere that if you get lost you will just end up where you started.  We went to the top of the mountains where we saw some incredible views.  We went to ocean cliffs where the waves crashed into us.  We went to the beach where you walked out into a beautiful blue warm ocean. We snorkeled where the fish don't even pay attention to you.  We saw 4-5 sea turtles that was way awesome.  We went to Pearl Harbor which was one of the most moving experiences of my life and we went to the Polynesian Culture center and the Laie Temple.  We had a fantastic time.  I have tons of pictures to share but I thought over the next couple of weeks I would post a picture  a day.  Just so you don't have to spend an hour scrolling through the pictures.  When I got home yesterday I downloaded over 350 pictures.  A little out of control I know.  
All said and done we had a wonderful time but I am happy to be home with my family.  A little shout out to Brent who did an awesome job taking care of the kids and the house.  I came home to a spotless house.  Even the laundry was done how awesome is that?  The kids were happy and had fun with dad.  Thanks to everyone else that helped out we appreciate the help.

HOORAY!!!! I have been checking your blog like crazy waiting for you to post your return to the mainland. I am so glad that you guys had a great trip. I am envious of the weather you enjoyed while there. You had nice 70-80 degree days while we sweltered in the 111+ degree oven that is home.

Welcome home!!
