School Party

Today we had Chase's whole class come to our side of the island for an end of the year field trip/party. The kids had so much fun on the water slides, rope swing, and beach. It was a great day.

Lunch break on the beach

We've had SO much fun with Bryan, Kelli, and Kenzie! We're going to try to figure out how to keep them longer!
My boys have loved having their little cousin around and she thinks they're hilarious!

Too precious!
He worked hard everyday to get water to make sand balls for Kenzie.

I could keep her!
Chase's first girlfriend. He took care of Kelli long ago when Bryan was on his mission.

Bryan just might be their favorite person in the world.


It was another day of celebration for Caden, this time on his actual birthday!

Wake up at 5:30 to make him his very own pan of dutch babies (Chase was very jealous of this)

School Party with Krispy Kreme doughnuts and water guns for all

Glow Put Golf (he beat Chase by one stroke with a hole in one on hole 17 for a come from behind win!)

Night at the Museum (very cute movie)

Dinner at Kimos

Dessert at Roys (chocolate souffle cake with vanilla ice cream)

Caden is so fun and full of life. He is very easily entertained, rarely complains, would give anybody anything, would rather buy presents for other people than himself, is friends with everyone, loves his family, watches out for his little brother, has the best laugh and cutest dimples ..... I could just go on and on about him. He can also be a little crazy and spacey but the good FAR outweigh the bad. Happy Birthday, Beans! We LOVE you!

Caden's Party

Let me start by saying that Caden's party was on "Crazy Hair Day".....
Caden wanted a family party this year before Bryan and Kelli went home so we celebrated his birthday a week early. We started the party off at the fun center .... trampoline, rock climbing, water boats, mini golf! Next, we came home for cold stone cake (cotton candy ice cream with marshmellows and red velvet cake) and presents. Then we headed to the skate park to try his new board. It was a fun day! We were so glad that Bryan, Kelli, Kenzie, and PaPa could be here!

Happy Early Birthday, Beans!

May Day

Today the kids had a huge May Day celebration at their school. There was an enormous tent set up on campus decorated with palm leaves and flowers. All of the classes then performed musical and dance presentations from the islands. It was so beautiful. Chase's class played the recorder and a couple classes played the ukulele.

Each class was represented by a prince and princess with the eighth graders being the king and queen. They had warrior guards and conch shell blowers to lead the procession. It was really cool!

It was a great May Day! And Happy Birthday to Kelli - we can't wait to see you guys tomorrow!
