Visiting Hawaii

The kids have been so excited to visit Grandpa and Grandma Allen in Hawaii! Brynlee could hardly handle the excitement, we tried to get the kids to bed early the night before we left since we knew we would be getting up really early to be at the airport by 4:30 am but Brynlee was just too excited to sleep. She finally fell asleep around 10:30. At 2:30 in the morning she was at the side of my bed asking if it was time to go yet. I let her crawl in bed with us hoping to get a little more sleep but she couldn't hold still and had too many questions about the airplane and Hawaii so we got up and got ready! Here they are bright eyed and bushy tailed waiting to get the show on the road!

Does she look excited? She gave a detailed narration of everything that was happening as we took off, it was pretty good and made it way more exciting than it actually was but I made her stop the first time we hit a little turbulence because then she started saying the captain wasn't holding onto the wheel anymore and maybe we would go straight down for awhile and it seemed to make some of the people around us nervous. =) Luckily it was a great ride all the way to San Francisco!

The boys had a great time playing at the airport while we waited for the next flight

Bryn was just anxious to keep moving

The kids were fantastic on the flight, eating snacks, playing with their toys and making friends with the people behind us.

I think the kids were a little shocked by the humidity when we stepped off the plane in Kona! They were super excited to see Grandpa and Grandma and happy to be in Hawaii!

Brynlee put Grandpa to work reading her Charolet's Web almost as soon as we got to their house

She didn't waste any time getting started on her list of things she wanted to do in Hawaii which included...

see the ocean

make lei's

pick a banana

catch a gecko

smell all of the beatuiful flowers

and most importantly, be with Grandma and Grandpa!
