I'm Back!

And newly tanned (not that I wasn't tanned before). Me n' my Peeps (The Princess, Jr. Peanut, and the Breadwinner) flew to paradise (aka Maui). Despite the impending threats of Hurricane Flossi and the tsunami advisory, we managed to have a good time (I think...vacations aren't really vacations for a stay at home mom...unless no kids are involved).

This was the view from our hotel room:

While we were there, the Breadwinner and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary (only one more year to the 7 year itch):

The "sun challenged" (due to lighter skin tones) duo waits for the shell seekers:

Some photos that rival Shauna's avatar. Even though I don't like chocolate, it doesn't mean that my daughter doesn't...

I am soooo jealous!! And, wow, could you have a more beautiful family?!

I loved the line about a vacation is never really a vacation for a stay at home mom unless no kids are involved -- so true.

Welcome home!

Sounds like a wonderful vacation. Love the photos. What is more delightful than a kiddo with their face covered in chocolate.

Welcome back home and to your blog-o-home.

great photos!
nice to see clearer pictures of the whole family
(as opposed to that small one that will not enlarge, the one taken in front of disneyland)
glad you had fun.
and i totally agree about vacations with the children for a SAHM
are like an SSDL type of deal:
(Same Sh** Different Location)

your children are soooo cute!
those solo pics of princess are just so whimsically beautiful.
there is something about that far away expression on her face that is so striking.

thanks for sharing more of yourself.
