Malaekahana and more food

On Saturday Chris took me to another beach sort of close to us called Malaekahana. It was absolutely beautiful. The beach is right across from Goat Island which is where all the sharks are. So basically we were swimming with sharks. (just kidding). Once we got there, I realized I forgot my camera. Luckily Chris is able to send pictures from his phone to the computer, so we only have those. We only played in the water for a couple of minutes then wanted to go build a sand castle. It's really weird here because sand is different everywhere you go. In a earlier post I talked about the sand being sticky, therefore easy to build with but at this beach it was more dry.. making it harder.  Anyway.. here are a couple pictures of our sand castle. We made a castle, then wanted to make a temple and then Chris wanted to make it an Aztec village so we made another "Aztec looking temple". 

This is Chris/Uncle Caca with a Frito. I love him. :)

Right before we went to the beach, Uncle Giggie called informing is that dinner was on him tonight. Him and Aunt Jo had three funerals to go to that day and they would bring food to us when it was over. He called while we were at the beach, Chris told him where we were and he came to pick us up and take us home. (Which was so so nice). He dropped us off and gave us a lot of food. 

This last picture is a poi roll. Very famous stuff around here. It was... good. Like a doughnut but Hawaiian style.  That's all for today. Thanks for checking in on us. :)


  1. Your blog is so cute! I want to come visit :)

  2. Love your updates . . .that 30 day post thing is a good idea . . . did you quit already?:)
    I asked Kiera what a good punnishment for hitting would be and she siad it should be to send her to live with you and Caca! That makes me fear that the hitting won't stop!:)

24 weeks (December 2017)

It's been awhile.
Like over a year since I last posted something here. I figured it was about time to update everyone. I announced that we were expecting a couple months ago and then left it at that. And several dear friends are asking for updates. And a lot is happening. 
So the quick (maybe not so quick) update is.. all is well! 

1. We're pregnant! (In case you didn't know). I am currently 24 weeks along with our miracle baby girl (Lucy)! We have had about 20ish ultrasounds and too many hours sitting in a waiting room to count. Being high risk is no joke. But I'm not complaining because we get to see our wiggly little girl almost every week!  When we first found out we were expecting (which is a whole post on it's own) we were given the option of genetic testing. After praying and fasting about this we decided to opt out. The test was a CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) where a needle would be inserted into to placenta to test the fluid and baby's DNA and that …

I'm going to start by saying I'm on heavy doses of Lortab and Tylenol. I'm seriously having a hard time making complete sentences but I want this to be out so you know what happened. From the beginning of this journey, Chris and I have felt like this has been such a "team" trial. We've had so much support and so many prayers offered on our behalf and that it's such a devastation to everyone that this happened. You are my team and I want you to be in on everything.

I honestly can't believe I'm sitting down at the computer and starting to write this out, again. Trying to explain what just happened, again. Trying to find the words to describe accurately how I feel. So here's my best.

I had felt her move very gently only three times on Wednesday so when I woke up on Thursday I went straight for the sugary cereal in hopes that would wake Charlotte up and get her moving. I ate and waited. I grabbed a cold water, drank half and …

Two, Four + Six years

Today is kinda a big day. Everything is hitting today. Our sweet Conor would have been two years old a week ago, Owen turned four and in a couple weeks Chris and I have been married for six years. That's a lot of anniversaries. Some great to remember and celebrate and some not. Everybody has those.

Our little buddy Conor would be TWO! See that muffin top down there? That's Conor not Cafe Rio, well maybe a little of both. Conor leaves some strange memories. Although we lost him, his soul, his body, I don't miss him. It that terrible or what?

After his early surprise delivery I was shocked, there's no doubt about that, but I almost immediately felt like he was a big, grown, man taking care of me. Owen didn't realize what was happening, well none of us did. He didn't ask about him everyday, he was just too young to understand. It just didn't seem like the end of the world. Everyone can handle a certain amount of pain and heartbreak right? Compared to Charlotte…
