Trev surprised me for Christmas with a trip to Hawaii...completely booked...air, hotel, the works! I had a feeling he was planning a big trip, but never thought he would have the whole thing planned...all the details and everything. Details are usually all me! But, what the heck are we ever doing in the middle of February besides drowning in the rain?! It was perfect timing. He had my mom in on it from the beginning, because he backed our trip against Carson's baptism so she could just stay at our house an extra week and watch the kids.
So, Trevor has always taken us on fun vacations....but we always take the kids...carting them coast to coast sometimes. All about family right here! We left Carson for a week to go to Japan when he was two, but haven't left the kids for more than one night since then (6 years!). Not sure why we never got away just the two of us...I guess we just haven't wanted to leave them out or the timing with babies/pregnancy is hard. But after Ry was born on our 10th wedding anniversary, we were really motivated to get away, just the two of us! I was worried about missing the kids too much...and worried Ry would forget me! But after a couple days in Hawaii I was able to relax and enjoy it...especially knowing they were loving Grandma at home! (And daily phone calls and web cam helped!)
The Laie Temple is closed for renovation...but it was still beautiful!
