March was such a fun month!
Addison just adores her cousin Abbi (they are 5 years apart) and loves spending time with her. Abbi lives 6 hours away, so when the opportunity presented itself in early March to help Abbi celebrate her 11th birthday in Wenatchee, we were on it! The girls played together all weekend – making up dances, playing with dolls, shopping and giggling over everything and anything. When the time came to go, tears were shed, but there were lots of hugs and promises to get together again soon.
Addison’s school held a movie night in their cafeteria one weekend and the kids had a blast! There was a giant movie screen and the kids brought in blankets and pillows and ate treats throughout the night. I hope the school offers this again!
Of the 31 days in March, 9 of those were spent in Hawaii!!! There was 6 of us total (myself, Aaron, Aaron’s parents, Aaron’s brother and his girlfriend) and we stayed at a gorgeous home on the Big Island. The weather was perfect, not too hot, and the entire stay was very relaxing. We ate great food, enjoyed delicious drinks, snorkeled, shopped, golfed, watched beautiful sunsets, visited friends that live on the island, swam in our pool – it was so much fun! We surprised Bob & Gwen for their 40th wedding anniversary with a limo ride to a nice restaurant followed by dessert at the house with tons of letters, cards and pictures from family and friends that had written to share their memories! We owe a GIANT thank you to Bob & Gwen for an amazing week filled with so much fun – the memories are priceless!
My sister and her family were in town the weekend we returned from Hawaii. We had dinner at a local pizza/arcade place and then headed to the trampoline park. It was packed, but the kids managed to jump, climb and slide for an hour. All of the cousins had a great time!
