busy

i feel like we have been really busy.  we have been having a lot of fun lately and i have not blogged about any of it.  i need to blog about friends from hawaii coming over for dinner and ivy falling in the pool while we were eating and luke diving in with his clothes on (and phone in his pocket) to save her, a fun night with the hardy's laughing at velzy and holly having a lettuce eating contest then watching velzy spit it in the trash, going to a super fun carnival reception this weekend, surfing san-o on friday, getting lots of stuff ready for girls camp and teaching the girls to make candy lei's, luke's finals, and a saturday of fun at doheny with the billings clan.  sometimes it seems like there is nothing on our calender, then all of the sudden we have so many fun things to do that the girls don't go to bed before 9:30 all week.  
and i have no pictures of any of it.  except for saturday we took a few:

i love saturdays.  especially saturdays with family at the beach.  and i love surfing doheny.  even if there were way, way too many people in the water, it was still super super fun.  and of course, no surfing pictures.  i really need to work on that. 

tomorrow, i get to go with all the crazy young women from church into the mountains to play for the week.  luke gets to enjoy some peace and quite at home while he does his homework.  velzy and ivy get to enjoy hangin with grandma, papa, biny and brockie.  i think they were really excited to see me go (at least i know velzy was).  and i have to admit, i wasn't super sad as i drove away with all the windows down and my music blasting.  and getting to go to dinner at ono hawaiian barbeque and do some target shopping just luke and i was not half bad either.  it's going to be an interesting next few days, but i am looking forward to them! 
and now i have to see if i can tear luke away from his laptop to take me to ohana yogurt, it's a hawaiian themed evening of eats tonight!

Where is Ohana yogurt?? leaving for the mainland tomorrow. Maybe, just maybe might run into you somewhere, Amanda? Would love to see you, if nothing else just to give you a honi honi. Anything you need from here? Just finished making some candy leis to take with me.
Aloha,
Jane

oh my gosh Kaylen fell in the pool when she was little, and her grandpa jumped in fully clothed with a cell phone in the pocket to save her...i wonder if it is one of those things that happens to everyone once?
Your going to Girls camp!?! Have to say i am a little jealous....

Manoa said...

We love the shot of the okoles of all the woodys! Aubrey and I dream of owning one some day.

Great pictures...you are becoming quite the photographer.

Keli'i and Megan said...

Holy moly, you're one busy chica! You're going to have the hardest time coming back to Hawaii after living so close to your familia...I thought I'd try out some more Spanish since you're back in Cali...

I think you seriously took the words right out of my mouth when you said you have nothing planned, but somehow you end up super busy & the kids don't get to bed before 9:30. That seems to be our life lately. We are supposed to be relaxing, but somehow we're constantly running.

Karyl insists on helping Greg every time he cleans the pool...when that cover comes off I wait nervously because one of these days she's going to take a dive (whether on accident or on purpose) and he's going to have to jump in with everything he's got on him....I wonder how long it will take??

Totally jealous of all the beach time...Karyl's only seen the beach once...we need to go more!!

Molly Malia said...

YAY you really do lots of fun things... um in utah... well i would trade for sure! jo only wants to play with friends or barbies and kasey is always doing side jobs or 'relaxing'. i want to play out side!!!!

I love all the pictures you took! You just have an eye for a good photo. Do you have a special editing program? I love the different effects you put on them. It just makes them timeless. I think the one of Ivy and Luke is adroable!
