Look at all my finishes!!

Look at all the stitching I got done on vacation!! :) We had some VERY LONG flights, including an 8 hr direct flight from Dallas to Honolulu, one week with "nothing to do" and an even longer flight home. So I wanted to show you everything I got stitched:

Oh wait.. you don't see anything?

Let me try again....

Oh, yeah, that's right! I stitched NOTHING. Nada. Zilch!

However I did manage to:

soak in some sun

play Foosball with my 13 yr old niece

swim with dolphins

walk the beach

watch surfers

eat lots of shave ice: YUMMO

play card games with us "big kids"

color with my little nieces

play 50 million games of ISpy with my nieces

visit the Pearl Harbor Memorial

watch an international surf competition

help my boys do homework
(that was ROUGH! who wants to do homework in Hawaii?)

survive a tsunami threat

pack and evacuate rental house in less than 30 min.

visit the Dole Plantation

ate pineapple ice cream

did the World's Largest Maze (some of the adults maybe have quit!)

built sandcastles

buried my neices in sand and gave them mermaid sand tails!

said goodbye to my family

ran through Detroit airport to catch a five minute connection

fall into bed exhausted!

Anybody wonder why all four of us slept the entire four hour flight from Honolulu to Seattle? Luke doesn't even remember getting on the plane! :) We were so exhausted! But we had a great time. I need to go through my pictures and post a few of the great ones.

Today was full of unpacking, grocery shopping, and laundry. Hoping to take a "me day" tomorrow!

So funny--I actually thought my browser was just slow until I scrolled down a little. Thought of you when I heard about the tsunami threat. Am so glad everything was OK and you have lots of priceless memories.
