We got our first Papua off the tree Carley planted. She has been watching it like a halk for months. Now. As one of those huge papayas finally started turning colors, she was able to pick it. The photos don't even do justice to show how big the papaya was.

We took the girls out of school while the Colvers were here so their first day back was May Day. Both the girls wore aloha dresses and leis. Their performances were very cute.
And then they had to leave. It was a whirlwind that was intense and over quick.
We stopped off at Matsumotos for shaved ice
Bubbas and Alma. They were friends when they weren't fighting over toys :)
We have been preparing for their visit since we moved back to Hawaii. We were so happy they stopped off here for 10 days on their way to Tonga.
We love to play at the church. We bring the kids' bikes, skateboards and sometimes cardboard and we invite friends. The kids have a great time running around, sliding down the hill, riding bikes and skateboards, and playing with friends. Jimmy likes to put the kids on the front of his skateboard and ride around with them. Carley also recently found a ripstick board at goodwill for only $10 so we bought it. Now we have that to ride around with also.

We have also been able to ride our bikes around kailua. It's fun to go to friends' houses, to the store, to the library etc now that we have a bike trailer for Bubbas. If the girls don't feel like riding, sometimes they hop in the trailer too. In this picture, we were riding home from the Speed's house after swimming there. Bubs fell asleep on taylor. It was very cute. She has been doing such a good job helping and looking after him. She loves to be silly, play games with, and make him laugh. She can be a very sweet big sister.

What a great day today. First, jimmy set up a surf session with friends. We went out to flat island, it was sunny, beautiful, with no wind and warm water. The waves were fun and I got to surf with my two favorite people. Jenni and TD :) and Gavin was there too (whom we also love). Then, I came home and jimmy and the girls totally surprised me because jimmy had removed the old yucky carpet int eh living room! I couldn't believe it! There was linoleum under the carpet! So now we can clean that room easier! I was totally shocked that he had done that for me. Then, Jimmy watched all the kids while I went shopping at target for myself (to get some new sleeping shirts) and a few other things that I really wanted. I was able to get a new skillet (our non stick layer is wearing out) and a new bathing suit bottom (I've had this particular one since before Carley was born and its elastic is shot). Then, I came home and we went out to dinner with John and Jenni to the California Liza kitchen. John ended up paying which was super nice of him, and we had a great time. Then, to top it all off, Jenni , me and jimmy all went and saw pitch perfect 2. It was a fun movie. I also got a card from my norther curt and his family, my mom and my sister Lindsay. Jimmy provided an amazing birthday weekend. Yesterday I had to work on my birthday, but my favorite part of my birthday is always getting the birthday phone calls from my family and loved ones. Man,
