Last post about T and family... :( Yes, I was and still (over a month later) am heart broken that they rudely left instead of staying in Hawaii forever and ever!  But I know they will be back!  Here are a few random pictures from the rest of her trip.  The first few are from a resturaunt we like called Longboards.  It's right on the beach and has great food.  It's connected to a hotel too so there is lots of grassy areas plus this awesome surfboard to play around on!
Kon has it down! 

Angel Ry.

Lex surfs with glasses! :)

We weren't sure which way the waves were going...

seriously??  Baby GQ!

The boys!

Linc and David had some fun and Lincoln was always very helpful with Giving David his bink!


In case you were worried we DID go to the North shore and of course we got shave ice!!

If you come to Hawaii you are coming to hang at the beautiful beaches!  So of course we spent more than our fair share of time at the beach!  I was gonna group these pictures in the general left over picture post but there are just way too many cute pictures.  Kids are just too stinking cute in their swimsuits covered in sand!
These boys ruled the beach. 

We played in the water.

We saw turtles.

We were too cool for pictures.

Okay maybe not WAY too cool!

We had some PDA moments. (Seriously I LOVE LOVE LOVE this couple!)

We got knocked over by waves (right ater this picture was taken!)

We watched the waves.

We made sand angels.
And then had them washed away!

We did a lot of relaxing.

A lot of laughing.

Built some sand castles.

With minimal sand eating.

We had the greatest 2 weeks of beach time!!!

We decided to check out Sea Life Park while Theresa was here.  It's kinda like a mini Sea World.  While I don't think it's worth the full price cost it was absolutely worth the super discounted price we got!  It was a fun couple hours.  The girls (and I think most kids) LOVE animals so all 3 of them loved it!
The shark tank.  Excited to get the party started!
David was also thrilled.  HAHA!

Ryan said this was her favorite part.  Waiting for the sea lion show to start.

Don't worry he woke up to play with his best friend at the little park!  Aren't they the cutest coolest little boys?!

They always love the hands on stuff!
Lexi's turn!

And David's turn.  Photo bomb courtesty of Theresa's finger! HAHA

More sea lions

I've already said but these girls were so great together!

When Theresa first booked her flight she said, "you're not going to make me go hiking are you?"  HAHA!  So we decided to go on an easier more well known hike.  Monoa Falls is definitely a tourist hike.  It's short but with a beautiful pay off.  It was a little more crowded than most of the hikes we do but I absolutely understand why it's so poplular.  The kids all did great.  Well, the girls did.  The boys were better once we realized they didn't like the packs we had them in so we switched on the way back and David and Lincoln were happy hikers!  Now that it's been a month I think it's time for the Daca-Fish Family to return to Hawaii for some more fun in Paradise!!!
Alexis at the beginning of the hike ALL smiles.  She is actually always all smiles on hikes.  She truly loves hiking!

Beautiful even from a distance.

Waterfalls are so cool to me!

McBride Fam

Aren't they the sweetest family!  They just need to add one more so we can have an even 6 between us.  (you're welcome T!)

Terrible Terrible picture of us but it's one of the only ones we took together!

These 3 were honestly great together!

I LOVE this picture of Ryan. :)

How do I even write this post??  Do you all know how LONG it's been since I graduated high school and went to beauty school?  13 years. 13 YEARS!  That is how long I have known Theresa.  That is how long she has been following me around the world visiting me wherever I go.  I know she's not just using me either because she even came to Columbus, GA MORE THAN ONCE! :)  I love having her come.  I love having a wife and another mom.  I love seeing her kids.  I love laughing and talking about the old days.  So this time was of course no different.  She came for about a week with just the kids and then Bryatt flew out a week later.  We had the best time!  This is not going to be in order because I'm too excited to share our first LUAU!  *also time for a shout out to The Bean's for our awesome Christmas gift to help make this possible!*

I had heard that Germaine's was one of the best Luau's as far as the best show so we decided to try this one out.  I can't wait to go see some of the other one's but honestly this one was great.  They had everything you would expect and then some.  The kids all had a great time (despite a little sand throwing... :)) 

Ready for the fun to begin.

ALOHA!  The kids got to go around and see all the performers.

Oh yes the now famous Lincoln loves pretty girls picture!  (Hey he's still nursing okay!)
Love how they sat most of the time.

Me and my love.

So fun!  The first time they called up all the ladies Theresa and I went up and we all learned how to hula but the second time we stayed down to get some pictures!

Lucky Konnor was given a BEAUTIFUL lei by one of the performers at the end.  Ryan looks jealous but really she was just jealous Kon was getting her picture taken and said, "take my picture too Theresa!"  (seriously this lei SMELLED SO GOOD!!!)
