Aloha Oi!

It's finally here!  The first official week of summer!!!  The kids left Friday for their vacation to Hawaii with Jon.  Let's just say they were nervously excited.  They were a little apprehensive to go when it came right down to it, but we're sure they'll have a great time!  They called Sunday afternoon.  Nerm was WAY excited and seemed to be having the time of his life.  He talked about everything from having a little Polynesian girlfriend at church (yeah, we'll be discussing that one in more detail when he gets home), sand castles, boogie boarding, and sea turtles.  Hunter was missing his friends, Mom and Dad, and was busy trying to figure out different places he could get wi-fi.  LOL....techno kids!  Nicki is taking it one day at a time.  She got her phone taken away during a 3 hour layover at the airport because she was texting (sounds odd....I know...most people like their kids to keep themselves busy at airports).  She is missing her friends like crazy!!!  And most of all she is looking forward to lots and lots of beach time!  I'm sure once she settles in and gets into the swing of things she'll have the time of her life.  After all, who can possibly be in Hawaii and have a horrible time?!

Den and I actually had a really nice weekend alone.  It's been a long time since we've had time to ourselves!  We went on a ride for a couple hours (motorcycle), out to lunch, and then to a movie....a chick flick even - "Letters to Juliet"....LOVED it!  We are looking forward to this next weekend so we can get out on the bike again.  But I have to say, after an EXTREMELY quiet day at home with the kids gone and Den at work, I've decided about the only good thing about having the kids gone - besides alone time with my hotty hubby when he's home - is that the house stays clean! I walked 4 miles, grocery shopped..including a Costco run, got my hair done, baked, made pasta salad, did a once over on the house, yard work, and it's 3:30 and seems like the house should be bustling with all that after school noise.   I forget how quickly I miss it!! But then look how much I got done!  Problem is...what to do with the next 10 days?!!  LOL
