It’s finally vacation!


We got to Maui and Autumn wanted to head straight to the beach.  Once we got settled into the room we went downstairs to the beach with Grandpa.

After the beach we headed to the pool for awhile and then upstairs to shower and eat dinner.  The only problem was it was only 2:30!  It felt like it should be dinner time since we were up at 4:30am.  We met up with the boys and had dinner.

Mom and Daine shared this deep fried spam musubi.


After they came back to our hotel to play at the beach.  Tomorrow, we are going to move to their hotel, they just didn’t have a room for tonight.

Wave jumping!

And wave falling.


Bryce even got into it.  He would play in the water and then take a break and play in the sand.

More water fun for us.

Grandma watched from the grass and Diane sat on the balcony.




Autumn and Grandpa checking out the waves.


“Kalina why are you just sitting there?  Watch out for the waves!”

The one of many sand-in-the-hair tumbles in the water, and she comes up smiling.


If you were us with this clod of sand, what would you do?


A boy and his bucket! (there’s no picture of him going towards mommy to get her wet with his bucket!)

Autumn is trying something new this spring.  She joined the Storm recreational soccer program and is playing with other girls from school.  She is playing with first graders and having lots of fun.  The trick is Colorado soccer in the spring means snow cancellations.  They’ve only had 2 practices in 5 weeks!  This weekend was their first game and first make-up game.

Just a little pre-game warm-up.

So many feet, only 1 ball.



Run, Autumn, run


Playing sweeper or goalie.  (Mom has some learning to do)


Go team!

Put your tongue in your mouth!

Autumn lost her first tooth today!  It was super wiggly!


Autumn was really worried about going to swimming lessons because she was afraid it would fall out int he pool.  Mommy told her it wouldn’t and off we went.  Part way through our lesson she handed her tooth to Grandpa!  Guess Mommy was wrong.


Autumn decided for her first tooth, she wanted to keep it.  She wrote the tooth fairy a note.


The tooth fairy left her a note saying she could keep her tooth.
