When we left for Hawaii, we were pasty, ready for a change and hoping for a few challenges!
Although there are 100 reasons why we were excited about this trip,
one was to encourage the kids to get out of their comfort zone.
In a relaxed setting, the kids were pushed out of their comfort zones to try
eat new foods,
and meet new friends!
Hallmark overcame his fearful impression of the ocean and waves.
Once she got heated up, Joyful would leap into the water
and remembered how to swim (from 2 summers ago)!
Mother’s Day was celebrated in Hawaii with some delicious chicken and waffles and these munchkins!
I was pushed out of my comfort zone by running with my brother in law’s military group.
Intimidating and fun!
The last week of the trip, Hallmark would adventure out into the ocean by himself to get water.
He even would grab a boogie board and go out with the Third.
We also acquired some sunnier skin tones and beachy sun-bleached hair!
The kids had their first motorcycle ride with Uncle J.
We left refreshed, pushed to new limits and thankful for the love of our family!
