1st day in paradise!

A view to the left from where our house is.

while the guys were out getting surf gear and Olea was crashed, Bella and I explored the yard, pool, hot tub, and hammack. She told me that this suit isn't modest, but its o.k. to wear it when no people are around! she still doesn't let Ben go swimming without a shirt!

In all her Mermaid gear in the hot tub...the pool was too cold.

I love seeing this ball of energy come to a complete stop for a couple of hours!

The guys contemplating the surf.




The flight was way too long, but the kids did O.K. When we arrived here in Hawaii, we were all smiles! we gained an extra 3 hours, which made it even better! Our home for the next two months is better than I imagined! it has it all! We explored the house first, and found that it has a perfect studio for Ben and Sean to paint in, and the hot tub is just perfect for me! Next we explored the beach and almost tripped on a huge turtle as we walked onto the sand, and of course I didn't have my camera. We have adjusted pretty well, except the kids are up at 4:00 in the morning, so we have been watching the sunrise on the beach. Ben and Sean didn't waste any time getting a rental car for the month and buying some surf boards. All in all it was a dreamy day.
