We are finally back to some normalcy after returnig from our trip. We got back Thursday night and woke up to snow Friday morning! We had a FANTABULOUS trip and wish we were still there...especially after the 6 inches of snow we got! I'm just warning you now, this post will be full of pictures. While we were there, we swam at the pool and the beach, soaked up some much needed rays, boogie boarded, snorkeld, ATE, had massages, went on a helicoptor ride, visited with family, played games, shopped, and saw the beauty of the island. Here are some pictures from our trip...enjoy!

The day we arrived!

Carson and his "Hawaii necklace" as he called it the first night we were there.

A Flock of Foulgers in all their green glory! I don't have a big family photo yet, but there were 35 of us there and you definatley couldn't miss us in our nice green shirts!
Each of the shirts had which child/grandchild/spouse/greatgrand child we were

The ones that started it grandparents!

Boogie boarding with dad

Helicoptor ride...
was amazing! We were able to go into a volcano, see the wettest spot on earth where it rains 350 days a year, see whales, tons of waterfalls, and see where they filmed Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and South Pacific

Feeding the Fish
The resort fed the coi fish in one of their ponds every day at 9 a.m. They would give the little kids cups full of fish food for them to feed the fish with. Carson had a blast and I think we did it 3 times while we were there. It was actually pretty gross to watch because the fish would go crazy flopping all over each other trying to get the food.

Ki Pu Falls

We drove up to some water falls one morning...which would explain why I'm still in my pj' check them out. They were fun to see. Chickens were EVERYWHERE on the island. They have no natural enemies on the island one person put it...the chickens rule the island!

My sister and 2 of my cousins trying to get in on the set of Run DMC's show Run's house. He and his family were staying at the same resort we were and were shooting for their show on MTV all the time.

My boys chilling in the bed.

Not quite big enough to ride the slide

This isn't from our trip, but I thought it was really cute!
Wednesday night we spent the night in Billings, MT and then flew home Thursday morning to Nebraska. Wednesday night Christian's mom and dad came up and visited us for a few hours. It was fun to see them!

Oh man it looked like you guys had a blast. I bet that was a shocker to wake up to snow when you got home after the warm weather.
