Sandpoint Idaho

At the end of September Hazel and I were lucky enough to head out to visit Diana and livi (jase and Ben too) in sandpoint Idaho. We flew into Spokane and spent Friday to Tuesday playing!! We went out exploring and site seeing the beautiful outdoors, shopped, ate delicious food, went on a couple runs, chatted, laughed, picked up like we never were apart. I got to see where my best friend is from, the place that makes her the happiest and even though it's far from me that makes me happy that she is where she wants to be!



Fall is just the best! One of my favorite parts of Omaha is Valas pumpkin patch! 
For my birthday we rented a camp site and spent all day with friends at Valas 


Iowa state fair

For our 7th anniversary we spent the day at the Iowa state fair!! 

Hazel loved jumping! 
Selfie stick with friends!!!!
Mitchell and I were taking selfies! (Hi kallie!!) this is when we were waiting to see the butter cow and Donald trump happened to be there!
We also, went on rides, saw a one man band, ate delicious fried food, checked out the animals and spent too much on fair games ;)
Oh and happy 7th anniversary to my sweetheart!! 



Jason and I were able to go to Hawaii during his summer break and it was amazing!! First we all flew to ca on sat and got the kiddos set up at Grammy and poppies ( we cannot thank them enough for watching out cuties for so long!!!!) then on Tuesday morning jas and I flew to Oahu out of Oakland. Flight was good- rented a car and drove to my cousins (thanks Sam and Paige you guys were amazing hostesses!) 
at ewa beach. That first day we hit up white plains beach just napped, swam and layed out.

Wednesday we went to Pearl Harbor. It was such a cool experience and even cooler that Jason is military and we could drive on base- oh and since he is an officer they have to salute to him. 
Thursday was waterfall hikes and snorkeling and we pretty much drove the entire island! Konos for breakfast was amazing!!

Friday we went to the dole plantation then the temple and then the Polynesian cultural center oh and this was the night my niece Shelby was born!  

Saturday we went to a delicious breakfast spot called cinnamon a and then hit up the prettiest white sandy beach lanakai - then that evening we brought Taco Bell to the beach and played games with our cousins and roasted marshmallows it was so so much fun!!! 

Sunday we we r to church then went on a hike it was steep!!! Then we went home andade dinner for Sam and Paige and did a million dub smashes 

Monday morning we got all packed up and headed back to the airport 
It was so fun to see our kiddos when we got home!!! It was the best vacation and a great early anniversary and birthday presents!!
