Leif is getting smarter and smarter, he asks me questions constantly about how and why things work, which also means he is becoming defiant...yay. He is full of spunk, and truly loves his sister, Jack, and talks about his "brover" Soren constantly. He has enjoyed playing outside in our new yard, and of course loves anything "Thomas" or "Cars" related.

We FINALLY have a yard, both boys have been giddy with excitement. Mowing the lawn more than neccessary, and loving the lush green grass. Leify has always been Leif's right hand man, why would mowing the lawn be any different? He told me, "I need to go get my mower in the house, be right back in a sec.", and out he comes with his mower and hops into line with Leif. He is such a funny little guy.

This was the entrance to our room at Mama's Fish House.
Sophie, modeling the view from Mama's Fish house. She adopted the "hang loose" lifestyle easily.
The first night in Maui we stayed the night at this awesome place called Mama's Fish House. The food was excellent, and the views were gorgeous. We had dinner, and I had the best pork tenderloin I have ever eaten. Delicious.
For some reason I didn't end up with any pictures from the house in Kihei, so here is yet another view from Mama's Fish House.
For the rest of our stay we were in Kihei, Tammy had rented a house?...hmm, bungalow? Ha. It was darling, right on the ocean. It had huge backyard where we sat, read books, daydreamed, and were able to see turtles pop their heads up to say hello. The coolest part about the house was that it had an outdoor shower, can't say I am going to be installing one at my own house anytime soon, but it was definitely perfect for the house and location.
It was laid back trip where we just enjoyed each other's company, ate cheesecake for breakfast, snorkeled, laughed and relaxed. I read more than I had than years. Sophie tagged along as well, she loved the beach, and was a perfect little girl...most of the time ;)
Sophie was sure she could crawl through the sand with not one, but two cookies. It didn't turn out in her favor.
But she's happy anyways.
I am so lucky to have the family that I do, and for a sister that sees and appreciates the importance of spending some quality time with her sisters and friends. It had been a long time since we've been able to do something like this, let alone in beautiful Hawaii.
Sophie loved swimming in the ocean, her is she is with her Aunt Tammy.
