Family Memories of Hawaii


Oh dear, I love this picture. Shannon posted it on Facebook yesterday and I had to steal it to share with all of you. I think I was three in this picture, and what I remember most is my parents bribing me, yes much bribing. They bribed me with every candy in creation to wear an outfit similar to what Shannon (the baby) is wearing. I simply wouldn't. I don't remember why I was so determined not to wear it, but alas, you see my very unhappy face to even be in the picture. I seemed to do this a lot through that age. I was quite the stubborn child. It's fun to look back and laugh at it.
This picture was taken in the back yard of our home in Laie, Hawaii. Sometimes I still can't believe I lived 10 years of my childhood there. It was a dream.
Of course we are missing three members of our family that weren't born yet; Caitilin, Sean, and Conn.

and then i expect two oiled up polynesian guys to pick up your entire platform and carry you off to the waiting river raft so we can all fawn you with palm leaves and throw leis at your feet...

I left a totally long winded not on Shannon's FB page that goes for you too. Let it suffice that I was so very excited to come into contact with you guys, that I had to skim through the old China pics again.

Oh my cuteness. Your expression is hilarious. So adorable. I can't believe you lived there either, and now you are in Utah. Lucky for us!!!!

Laie is a dream. You were lucky to have lived there. Sigh...
