We had a GREAT time in Hawaii...

We loved Kauai and had a hard time wanting to come home. It was SO relaxing, the weather was perfect, we felt no obligation to be tourists as we had all been there before, we didn't have internet access in our room, the boys slept well (for the most part), I had a chance to read, we were in a corner room with a view of the ocean and the pool, it was 80 degrees, I could go on and on...

We all flew out last Saturday and met up with my parents and my brother, Sister-in-law, and nephew. We felt so blessed to be there. My parents took care of our trip and they used their time shares so that we all had our own individual suites. We had help with our kids and yes, we had many Tai Chi Smoothies by the pool. (No they are not on the South Beach diet but they were oh so delish).

Jesse and I started relaxing right away and Liam wanted to be in the pool 24 hours a day. I was eventually brave enough (and tired of my insecurities) to get up out of my pool lounger and go in the pool with Liam. It was really fun and it made me realize how my body image issues affect my kids. How dumb of me to avoid the pool so that strangers wouldn't see my awesome figure.

My sister in law took a majority of the pics and hasn't had a chance to get them out to me yet but here is a cute shot that I have of my dad, Liam and Finny in the pool... I miss you Kauai...
