The reason you should come visit...




Over the last year and a couple months that we have lived here I have heard the phrase, "oh, we will come visit when we save up enough money..." blah blah blah. I have even noticed the cheap ticket sales to hawaii for 299 round trip from various locations in the US, including Utah. Well, the door is always open and today I thought I would add another reason for you to consider coming to visit us.
On Sunday night, my back went out (pregnancy nerve problems) and George got sick. Because I couldn't even walk, Mark had to get up 4 times from 3:30 am to 5:30 am to clean up mass amounts of vomit. It wasn't until the 3rd puking that I thought I would tell Mark it might be a wise idea to give George a bowl so Mark doesn't have to keep changing his bedding, washing the wall, the floor and the rails of the bunk bed. Needless to say, Mark was exhausted, and I was not any help, so he decided to call in to work. We decided to all sleep in Monday morning; however, we woke up to the sound of our doorbell ringing a few times.
It was our neighbor Kekoa, George's primary teacher. He came to let George know that there were Manta Ray swimming out in the bay behind our home (literally our back yard). So we all hopped out of bed and ran out to the beach. It was the most beautiful sight, the sun coming up, lighting the aqua marine water to show a mother Manta Ray and her Baby playing around in the waves. They were only at most 10 feet from the shore!!! Wish you could have seen it with us...luv erin

Yeah, don't make us feel bad or anything! I was talking to a lady in our ward the other day who also went to BYUH and told her about you guys visiting us and how badly we want to visit you! Our 10 yr. reunion is in a few weeks and they are expensive here in CA! That is like our vacation this year. When is our planning deadline? Do you know how long you'll be there? Is it indefinite? Sorry about the boys. So glad you are enjoying beautiful Hawaii. :)

I thought for a minute that you were going to say that it would be a good reason to come visit to help you out with your sick boy! And you are right - that would be a good reason! Oh, the manta ray's would be too:) I really hope your back is feeling better - sciatica?

Thanks a lot Erin. It days like those on that exact beach that make me miss our home in Hawaii. That beach has okay days where there is tons of junk and muddy waters and then there are days like that one. Where the water is clear and so is the sand. Those days are just unbeatable.

Manta Ray, Beaches, Sun...Pshaw!
Here in North Dakota we have dead tomato plants and Dakrats. Ha! Beat that.

Wow - that's awesome! Now I'm really wishing we were there. We swam with sting rays before and it's so neat. How cool to get them out your back door!
