The zoo, the pool and a wedding...

Over the last few weeks we’ve been to the Zoo for the first time, we’ve spent A LOT of time in the pool in the back yard and week before last we celebrated the wedding of Leslie Barbour…the youngest of the Barbour clan.  She and her new husband, Chris, are off to Abu Dabi as part of a teach abroad program.

I think I blinked and the month of May just came and went!  Here are pictures from May!  The elk and deer pics are from our trip up to the cabin the first weekend.  Then we had a great visit with Grandma La La (aka Grandma Linda).  The last few pics are from our rainy and cold Memorial weekend! 
Sorry some of the pics are upside down…for some reason my phone does that and it won’t let me rotate them…I’ll figure it out eventually!

Major picture download

I’ve been so busy I’ve been ignoring the pictures and we have a lot!  These pictures are from the end of Jan through about mid-March….Ruby’s dedication, Valentine’s Day, St. Paddy’s day and everything in-between!

This one's for Gramp...

And the Earp Brothers...

(vintage boots..circa 1977)

The Park

This is the park that is located about 100 yards from our front door...we go often :)

Ruby no-nap

This is a goofy video. Ruby was avoiding her nap and I decided to video her. I tried to catch her by using the back camera on my phone but it was too distracting so I used the front camera…which means she could watch herself while I was filming it. She is pretty silly as you will see. What I need to do is film her watching this video which is funnier than the video itself. She laughs so hard at herself…it priceless…

Frozen Peas

Ruby sat on the floor last night and ate a bowl of frozen peas…I couldn’t believe how much she loved them. So this summer forget popsicles…we will have frozen peas…I love this kid!

We had to say goodbye to one of our best friends today. We miss her terribly. We will always have a place in our hearts for her…coming home just isn’t the same without her here.

Kona - Day 3

Uh-oh, I’m on a roll. Day 3 we visited Volcanoes National Park, drove through Hilo, and stopped at Rainbow Falls. We ended the evening at the Fish Hopper with a big flaming rum drink!!

Kona Day 3

Kona - Day 2

Clearly I shouldn’t be allowed to try and make blog posts at 10pm…

Correction to Day one: we played in the Keauhou Bay and then explored the Kailua-Kona area (where the shops and restaurants are).

Day 2 we tried our first fresh coconut at the Keauhou Saturday market and then spent the rest of the day at Kekaha Kai State Park….

Pictures - Kona Day 1

I’ve been having some slight technical difficulties so I’m giving up on trying to post all the Kona pictures at once. Here is day one…
We started the day Keauhou Bay and then ended up at the Kekaha Kai State Park.

Oh how I wish we were still there….

Aloha - day 1

These videos are kind of dorky but thought you would enjoy. The first two are goofed up but I can't edit them on my phone...sorry for the neck ache.

It's 11:46 a in Kona. We are at Costco...Kris is shopping and Ruby is napping so I thought I would take advantage of the down time.

More later...

Holiday Recovery

Yes we are in holiday recovery mode! Getting back in the swing of things and back to the old routine! I realized tonight when I went to download the camera and my phone there are A LOT of photos…I know I have a problem!

So…here are the rest of the photos from Christmas (we enjoyed our time with Papa Pro and all the family and friends we were able to see), Thanksgiving (yep that’s right…back in time), many visits to the park (Ruby LOVES the park…we can’t even say “park” or we are in trouble…she loves the swing and the slide), New Year’s, our first ride in Papa Bear's jet boat and then whatever random misc pictures I could find :)


Ruby is also making great strides (not sure if the pun is intended or not :)) in walking on her own:

Just for fun...
