Family Photos From Hawaii

We are FINALLY back from Hawaii! case you haven't heard we were "stuck" there for an extra 3 days. We flew standby....and sometimes that's just how it goes. There are worse places to get stuck I guess. :-)

We had a great time although I have to admit I really felt that Hawaii itself was overrated and overpriced. My brother in law grew up there and it was so awesome to have him with us to show us around. If you ever go you HAVE to try Matsumoto's shaved ice! Don't be a wuss, try it traditional with ice cream and black beans. It is amazing! Also the shrimp trucks have the BEST shrimp I've ever had. it wrong that all I'm writing about is the food? :-) 

We really had a great time. Below are a few of my favorite pics of my boys from the trip. I know, it's ridiculous. I go to paradise and can't get enough pics of these handsome devils. I'll post some more casual photos from the trip later. 

He just gets hotter as we get older. I love this man.

Just hangin' on the beach. It's the moments like this that I am SO glad I have captured on film.

My little man...strollin. 

Mason LOVED the beach. So many rocks, so little time.

Our little family.
Funny story behind this picture....Mason had a rock in his hand and just whacked Daddy on the head. I think this is him trying to kiss up to daddy after.

Grand Canyon

We have lived her for almost 10 years and FINALLY decided to head up to the Grand Canyon for a quick day trip. Here are some of our favorite pics from the day. (Captions Below) :-)

"WOW! That's one BIG hole!"

Having fun with Daddy!

The typical picture that everyone has after a trip to the Grand Canyon.

My handsome boys! cute is my boy! I always swore I would NEVER have one of those backpack/kid leash things. There's a lot I said I'd never do with a kid that I have. LOL. This shows how much he "loved" it at first.
Eventually he did end up loving it...and it was a MUST HAVE in the Grand Canyon. One more parent converted to the "leash". 

We stopped at a great deer farm on the way to the Grand Canyon. 
We were laughing because Mason was imitating the goats eating. 

Neils getting some kisses from the camel.

Ridiculously Cute Family's just wrong that my niece's and nephews are this photogenic and polite and SO MUCH fun to have around. I'm pretty sure they are a top secret government experiment, because I've never seen better kids. I love you guys!

What to do when it's 105 outside and you visit the Lunds.

Ok. It's no secret I'm a little crazy. :-) I've been wanting to find someone to let me torture them with this idea I've had for a photoshoot for a long time now. Enter in my neices (Kayla & JJ) and my nephew (Jesse)...while they were visiting I talked them into letting me dump goo all over them. We honestly had a BLAST doing this. Even Neils and I got into it. We've got the system down now so keep watching my blog for Take 2 of this experiment. I think next time will be even better.

Just a few pics from our weekend.

This weekend we officially made it a family weekend. Even though we didn't do anything too special, we really made an effort to spend time together rather than running errands and getting things done around the house. Here are just a few pics of the weekend.

Playing with Daddy
Just relaxing with the dog...

Mom always takes pics of my eyes...
"Fhawower" I would say.

Here Comes The Rain...FINALLY!

If you don't live'll never know how AWESOME it is when it rains here! It happens so rarely that we LIVE IT UP when it does finally rain. Mason is super excited about being able to play outside again finally after 13 days of over 100 degree temps. 

Today we headed over to the park and found a huge puddle. Too bad I can't wrap those up for Christmas because it would be Mason's favorite gift. He had a blast!

Here are just a few pics from Easter. Mason LOVED the Easter Egg Hunt. He surprises me all the time with what he ends up loving. The first two pics are from when he discovered that there was candy in the eggs. He was SO excited! 

Hope you all had a great Easter.
