Brock has hated wearing his contacts the past 6 months or so, so we decided to get him some glasses. He loves to wear them. They are a little on the thick side, due to the fact that he has no lens in his eyes. But he is still as cute as ever.

It was a lot of fun and something I think we will continue to do over the years to come.

Well Cooper and Brock have officially become partners in crime. A couple of weeks ago Cooper was having tummy issues so we had the Vaseline and powder handy for diaper changes. I turned my back for like a minute and this is what I found!! Brock thought it would be hilarious if he dumped powder all over Cooper. It must have been pretty funny because Cooper was totally busting up every time he did it. I was mad but had to get a picture to capture the moment. Boy will these boys keeps me on my toes for the next 18 years!

This weekend we went to Idaho for a weekend get-a-way. Our plans changed about 20 different times due to some unforeseen problems with a suspicious mole and Tanks work. But Tank was determined to make it out of town before his Holiday rush season was here. So we decided to head up to Idaho Falls to visit The Burgetts, some friends of ours. We got a hotel room right across from the Idaho Falls temple.
The boys thought the room was the coolest thing ever because it had two rooms and the room they stayed in had Bunk beds and their own TV and DVD player. He had a BBQ with the Burgetts on Saturday Night and hung out. It was good food and company.
The next day we headed over to see the Falls in Downtown Idaho Falls. They were pretty and then we headed over to The Idaho Falls Temple to walk around the grounds and go to the Visitors Center.
Then we headed about an hour North of Idaho Falls and visited a place called Mesa Falls. The falls there were beautiful. The kids really enjoyed seeing the falls and being so close to the water.
After eating dinner we took the kids swimming at the Hotel pool and off to bed they went. We woke up this morning had some breakfast and headed home. It was a really fun and relaxing trip.

We flew out to Kona (which is on the Big Island) on Tuesday. We got to our hotel which was called the Kona Village Resort. It was an all inclusive place and each of the rooms were private bungalows called Hales. Our room was not quite ready so we headed over to the lunch buffet they had set up. All of the dining is outside about 100 yards from the ocean. So we always had a great view and nice breeze. The food here was amazing, breakfast was ordered from a menu and they had the best pancakes, (Tank fell in love with the banana pancakes with coconut syrup), Lunch was always buffet style with fresh sushi (Tank loved) 2 hot entrees and they always had a chef who grilled up burgers, hot dogs and sword fish. I will fill you in on dinner as I go on with the days.

That night for dinner they had a Hawaiian Cowboy BBQ. They set up tables on a big grassy area and had a buffet of BBQ food. They had chicken, ribs(best ribs ever), steak, lobster, and some other kind of fish, Corn on the cob, baked potatoes, salad, baked beans. It was delicious. Then we had dessert and listened to the Hawaiian Cowboys serenade the group.
Wednesday we ate breakfast and headed out to see some waterfalls.
We had planned on going to the Volcano on Thursday but we were only 29 miles from it at this point so we decided to go. I was all excited to see some lava. No such luck again. We did get to see some Steam Vents and the Lava Tubes. But that was it. We headed back to the hotel by now we had driven around the entire Big Island. It was so neat how one side is totally lava rock everywhere and the other side is green and lush.
After we got back, we got ready to go to the Luau our resort was having. Once again the food was delicious and the entertainment was great. It was so nice to have everything right at our resort so we didn't have to go everywhere to find food and entertainment.
Thursday we decided to do the beach thing and checked out a Kayak from the beach shack had headed out. The water was so calm in the morning and we were right in a bay, that we could paddle out and stop and see right to the bottom and see fish as they swam by. After that we headed to a beach down the road in search of bigger waves to boogie board on. There wasn't a whole lot of success there so we swam for a while and headed back.
Later that afternoon, we headed into Kona and visited the Temple and went shopping. He had another great dinner which was sit down at the restaurant this time.
That afternoon, Tank wanted to golf so I was his chauffeur. It was really relaxing, the course was on a mountain and there was a nice breeze. Other than me almost getting attacked by 5 peacocks it was a great time. That night was another Luau, the food was pretty much the same as Wednesday but still awesome.

Monday was our last day in Hawaii, our flight left at 9:00pm that night. We headed back out to the North Shore and visited Sunset Beach, Waimea, and The Pipeline. The waves weren't very big but it was neat to see. Then we headed back to Kealas house and visited some more. Then we drove back to Honolulu to get ready to leave.
It was a great relaxing trip and we had a great time. We have decided we are going to go back every 5 years if we can convince my Mom to watch the boys again!!
