Wordless Wednesday – Remembering Hawaii…

by Janice


Next week I hope that Susan will post a picture from Italy, but she still doesn’t have her internet up and running yet.

So this week, I decided to remember the only big vacation we have taken since Jackson was born. Two years ago, when Jackson had just turned three, we went to Hawaii. It was so fantastic – Jackson loved it of course! I wish we could afford to go more often – I imagine it will be a long time before we feel the Hawaiian sand between our toes again. But I am so grateful we did get the chance to go – it is such a wonderful memory.

PS – I know these are supposed to be “wordless” but I just can’t seem to keep my mouth shut!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Cute picture! I have never been to Hawaii but can’t wait to go!

Awww . . . I love love this picture! It brings back memories for me, too, as we took our son (also our only real vacation) when he was just 7 months old to Hawaii. We had the best time ever. I know he won’t ever remember it, but the memories we hold in our heart will last forever and I can’t wait to one day explain all the fabulous pictures we took, to him. :)

Looks like a professional magazine ad. Great shot and very cute little guy.

Love, Michelle

Ahhhh…Warm sand! Cute photo!


7 Susanne April 25, 2007 at 12:51 am

Love that picture! Look at that smile!

On a sidenote: don’t you find it amazing how the skies in the background of pictures from Hawaii look almost like paintings? We have several like that too!


8 YoungMommy April 25, 2007 at 1:13 am

I love it. It looks like he is having a blast!
Oh, to be in Hawaii right now…


9 melody April 25, 2007 at 1:14 am

I think it is cool that you explained the picture :) – I have never been to Hawaii, wish we could go some day…Maybe next year for our 25th anniversary…

Blessings on your Wednesday and always.

We took the girls to Hawaii last fall….:) And this is such a great picture!


16 Kim April 25, 2007 at 2:40 am

What a gorgeous picture and what an adorable little boy! We are taking our first big trip ever this summer to Disneyland. Our youngest is 11–the next one is 14 and the 21 year old is coming along too. My poor daughter who just got married last summer is not coming—we keep telling her she got a wedding instead! :) Oh–I should clarify that we have done a couple of cross country trips to the midwest to visit family, but those don’t count as a REAL vacation!

That is really an amazing pic. So perfect, unlike mine from the beach, i everyone there is either someone with a finger up their nose, digging out a wedgie, etc. I’m jealous!!!


25 Whitney April 25, 2007 at 8:27 am

I’d love to go to Hawaii…or just the beach anywhere. My Jackson loves playing in the sand, but I have to watch out because he tries to eat it. :)


26 Jarid and Caydon's blog April 25, 2007 at 8:29 am

BTW– When you click on the link for WW HQ you get a message that says “WW has moved up a level. Please update your bookmarks.” Just thought you would like to know.

Looks like a great vacation!!


46 Barb April 25, 2007 at 11:27 am

Not to worry, Janice. No one pays any attention to the “wordless” part. LOL What a cute photo.

I would love to go to Hawaii. Krissy went there on her honeymoon. Mandy’s going there on her honeymoom in June. No fair. Mom should get to go to Hawaii, too! Right?


47 Sallie April 25, 2007 at 11:29 am

We love Hawaii! We’ve got to visit twice — once with the kids and once just for ourselves! It’s so beautiful!!!
