A Family Vacation

We just got back from a wonderful vacation to Hawaii! We didn't buy a ticket for Tanner but we got lucky and he was able to have his own seat. He did great on the flight. We all got to watch our own movies and Tanner took a great nap.
Finally, we got to our Country Inn! It was in the middle of nowhere and was so cute. It was a 2 bedroom condo so Tan got his own room. This was the view from where we ate breakfast every morning. My parents gave us the condo as a gift and it was so wonderful!! Thanks mom and dad!
Derek's mom hooked us up with a luau. We were so excited that it was inside because it was pouring down rain that night. The food was so good, and Tanner sat through the whole show. He was fine as long as he had his arm around me or Kipp.
One day, we drove around the island and stopped where ever we wanted. We went for a hike up to some waterfalls. It was HOT and there were no waterfalls! That's what you get when you go at the end of summer.
My two boys looking so cute on the sand. Tanner loved spending so much time with his family.
We shared shaved ice on the beach of Waikiki while Kipp was on a scooter. We rented that floater behind us and floated in the water together.
Tanner sharing a smoothie with his daddy.
We walked down to a bay to snorkel. The views were beautiful and again Tan loved just playing in the water. This was the only day that we rented a life jacket for him. He loved running in and out of the water.
Tanner gives hugs to Daddy and Mommy! It was a great vacation. We were there with Kipp's sister Kelle and her volleyball team. I'll post more pictures of them next time.
